Found Art Friday 96

Welcome back to the Department of Homeland Inspiration!
In France they call the first week of September the re-entrance (la rentree). You pass through a threshold.  Though as Dennis the Menace said a few weeks ago: "Even summer doesn't last all summer anymore". Thankfully, several of you sent material in to the The Department while Art Ranger was out on the range.By now, you have the #2 pencil smell and the vinyl pencilcase smell, and the apple-in-lunch-too-long smell and you begin again again.
Juvenile Sea Gull not always begging: two images from Jim Lindenthal
Fawns in Front, also from Jim.
It becomes clear why humans invented good photography lenses and stuffed animals.  Because we want to hold things that are wild.
Our Aunt Madge found this surprising honeycomb sculpture on what she calls "Facecrack"
This appeals to our bee-loving soul. Interesting that the inside face is awake/open and external face is  closed. Given our cultural iphone-itus (condition of phone overconnection), do people still have internal images going on inside their heads when they close their eyes?  

Here arrived something from Esquire Anonymous in Bend, Oregon.  We name this tomato, Tammy.

Then, there are things we shouldn't find so lovely but we do:
Oak moth worms:: from the series, moments in fencing
Well, where have you been? Fill our hearts with accidental inspiration:


  1. Thank you for the wonderful photos and commentary art ranger...the detail on the gulls is amazing Jim...I feel like I can just reach out and start...petting. :)

  2. I can hear the caterpillars eating the leaves of the oak trees...eerie
