Well it ain’t as fancy as I’d been thinking of doing it, but it’s done. After these several years of writing about various finds excavated from the trove that is our backyard (such as the World War II-era German army helmet unearthed in 2006), I finally got all the crap together, set up a cheapass version of a desktop photo studio (consisting of a few sheets of propped-up paper and an overhead light, and digitally documented the collection haphazardly, but at least it’s all in one place in the form of this Flickr photoset, with room to grow as new trinkets, trifles, treasures and trash trickle in.
