Overindulging in Vernacular

I haven’t been able to figure out if there’s any benefit to a heavy dose of vernacular photography, but right now I’m feeling that’s it’s pretty much nothing but empty calories.  There’s no doubt one could go through found photographs forever and find interesting material, but at the end of the day, I’m not sure there’s much substance there beyond the historical significance.  Although, I did just receive ‘Evidence’ in the mail,  so perhaps with an intelligent hand behind the edit it can be insightful.

There’s not doubt it can be addicting though.  So much so Mat made it through all 1244 photographs in the Flickr stream of superbomba.

Also, thanks to Jeff for pointing out MangoFalls as well.  Another bottomless pit of found photographs.  The story and presentation are kind of interesting for those who may not have come across it already.
