Found Art (What is in your pockets?)

I am a huge fan of found art. By 'found art,' I mean the organic placement of things and/or people into an arrangement that is interesting, pleasing to the eye, thought provoking, or novel. I think that this is a primary reason to always have a camera with me. I want to be able to record the 'found art' when I see it. I want to be able to preserve the way I saw the world at that moment and then show it to others.

This photo is entitled What is in your pockets?  While visiting a local museum I was searching for a coat check ticket and I could not readily find it, so I ended up taking everything out of my pockets and depositing them on a bench. I looked down and I saw art. I am sure most people would have just seen junk, but I saw art and I captured it with my iPhone.

I encourage photographers to always be on the lookout for art. Look for organic patterns that can be captured and shared through the medium of photography. 

-- Enjoy
