There’s a drawer at the end of our photo file cabinets that is partially dedicated to “miscellaneous” pictures. I’ve never looked in there, which makes sense when you stop and think about it. What would be a compelling reason to go look in a drawer that is by definition filled with stuff that doesn’t sensibly belong anywhere in particular?
I looked in there today. And indeed I had no reason. I was standing around killing time in between meetings, feeling sort of existentially miscellaneous when it caught my eye. It turned out to contain a hilariously bizarre collection of images. The first thing that jumped out at me was how many were photographs of random inanimate objects. It’s funny–they’re all meticulously labeled, but unlike most photos, you can’t get any sense of why they were taken.
What could have been the purpose of recording this, for example?
I only got as far as the “L”s, so there may be much more of this.
Bonus: Speaking of inanimate objects . . . .
