Back Page - The Lurker - Page Two

Six children

Here is a category of found photograph sought by collectors.

It is called "The Lurker."

They are fairly ordinary pictures except there is always at least one person in the background or off to one side caught in the frame. They are often aware of the picture being taken but often unaware that they are in it.

Here are a few examples. See if you can spot the lurker in each snap.

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.
