Punctum: "it is this element which rises from the scene, shoots out of it like an arrow, and pierces me."
―Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

I've gathered these photos - one by one - because something about them draws me in...I hope you'll find something that speaks to you, also. These images may be fun, funky, freaky, haunting, historical, beautiful or bizarre. They will always be vintage, original, and scarce or one of a kind.
