The Things We Leave Behind

The things we leave behind disappear from our lives — but not the world. This week, make one of them the centerpiece of your post. —Weekly Discover Challenge

1953 Mar. 18
Newscopy: “LEFT BEHIND–When a man, tentatively identified as Ezra Bourland, of Larkspur, leaped to his death from the Golden Gate Bridge today, he left his car parked on the span. In the back of his 1950 Chevrolet coupe were these items: a pair of work shoes, a bottle of port wine, a paper-bound book called ‘I Should Have Stayed Home.'”. [1]

I worked at the Golden Gate Bridge for 15 years as an electrician and I have seen my share of “things left behind”. Backpacks, briefcases, bags and personal items of clothing left on the sidewalk served as evidence that someone was once “here”, and now gone.


I used the John S lens/Robusta film combination in the Hipstamatic app to take this photo of a puddle of water at the Marin County Civic Center last year. Further edits were made with the Intensify app.

Up Close

I have been experimenting with using my iPhone camera to get in close and take some “macro” photographs. This one is a hand-held shot of one of the roses in our backyard using the Eric lens/Kodot XGrizzled film/Jolly Rainbo 2X flash combination in the Hipstamatic app.
