Contest Photo #3
Spookier & Spookier It Gets
Okay, this one creeps me out…
What is that canvas thing in the background?
Did Dorothea Lange snap this one?
Is this the final scene from The Grapes of Wrath?
(Typed on the back) “The effects of gonorreah by age six weeks.”
People! I want cryptic messages that will give the eventual finder of this photo nightmares for months!
Look for a new photo every couple days. An inscribed copy of Not Forever, But For Now to the best message on each photo.
Years ago the guy who ran the Lusty Lady peep show in downtown Seattle would write to me. He read my books and sent me the detritus that fell from the pockets of men while they dropped trou to pull the pud in porn booths. Often this included small photos of grade-school kids with some form of the following inscribed on the back: Daddy, I miss you, please come home. Small photos of smiling kids, sticky with the same genetic material that had spurred the same. Pathos tipping into bathos.
That reader went on to become a mortician. Now he’s a photographer. Life will out.
