Found Film: Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY

I remember a previous teacher of mine at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Jack Wilgus (an excellent and passionate teacher and photographer who recently retired last August) once said to never throw away your negatives! This was a sad sight to see on the walk up Washington Avenue to my studio. There were some interesting images too that seemed to date back to the late 60's, early 70's. As the saying goes, one person's trash is another person's treasure.
