Possibly the most popular subject of the amateur photographer is children.
In the past, LOST GALLERY has collected photographs of children on pages called:
The Studio Portraits
The Kid in the Tub
The Goat Cart
Cowboy Suits
Child on the Front steps
Boys in Dresses
Three Children
Vintage Child Holding a Chicken
Girls and their Dolls
Baby on (Running) Board

This collection will be mostly of amateur snapshots of children; basically a child or two standing out in the yard, or just busy playing. There's a pro shot here and there.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

"What are they doing?"


  1. So much of your blog is like looking at a display of colors at the paint store. Each individual hue is as beautiful as any other.
    But the last two - the baby on a dog and the boy against the barn are striking for their accidental art.

    1. Thanks Mike Brubaker. I think that was part of the original Idea or LOST GALLERY: to assemble abandoned photographs of a like subject hoping it would create an atmosphere of comparison and cause the cream to rise. My favorites are the same as yours followed closely by the child in a basket on the scales and the child sitting on the board walk. Although a snap may be technically poor, it still somehow retains its mystery and fascination.
