I was given some photographs of old relatives that were found in a box in my great-grandfather's house after he passed away. All but one photo is someone I can identify. I have no information on that one photo, which is of an old woman standing on a path in front of a farmhouse. I'd like to at least get an idea of the era so I can begin narrowing down the identify of the woman. [more inside]

Someone mentioned to my mother that a photo in this week's (2/22) edition of The Week magazine is likely me. The article is about people using computers and smartphones on airplanes and is called, I think, 'Please turn off your electronic devices' (p. 11). [more inside]

Narcissism filter: I love looking at pictures of me and my loved ones. I'd like to have more photos of my family up in the house but there are some snowflakey, silly issues... [more inside]

Let's play find-a-photo! Last year, I saw a link to an old-timey black and white photograph of 3 figures, perhaps on a hill or some other outdoor place. One man was wearing a monkey mask, another (I believe) a wolf mask, and a woman had an enormous black veil that obscured her face. They were all in fancy dress. I believe it was an old photo, not a new photo made to appear that way. It was sort of creepy. [more inside]

What's the story behind this odd photo
? It appears to be from about the early 1960s. Men and women are gathered at the end of a table with various interesting expressions on their faces. A bare pair of mans legs lies on the table, but the remainder of the body (if any) is out of frame.

On this bong gift set
I can tell the top picture is Che but I can't figure out (with tineye's and google's help) if the bottom man is smiling Che or someone else ... any ideas?

Does anyone know anything about this photograph
? I came across it on a stranger's Tumblr site and it's completely unattributed, and no amount of Googling has turned up even a clue as to where it's from. Looks like it's out of a book (page number in the bottom right), but beyond that, I got nothin'. I'm totally intrigued by it. (Note: I've already emailed the blog owner via their Tumblr site, so please don't email them again; I don't want to harass them...) Thanks!

Do you have the book, "The Other End of the Leash (Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs)" by Patricia McConnell? Can you look in or on your book and see if there is a photo credit for the cover photograph
? [more inside]

I've been trying to find the source of this photo,
off and on, for months. Reverse image search through tineye.com gives no results. Anyone recognize it? If so, what's the story behind it?

I'm looking for a B&W 70s picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger in a tuxedo with a large buck-toothed grin and bad hair backstage after winning an award (for, I assume, Stay Hungry
in 1977). [more inside]

I read a true crime book some years back, I don't remember anything about the book except one story.
My memory is hazy, but this is what I remember: some people were abducted in the USA. My memory tells me it was a mother and child/ren. I'm 99% certain it was an adult woman and at least one child even if they may not have been related.
Now the very creepy part. Photos of these people were found in a public bathroom sometime later. In the photos the woman was tied up, perhaps a child was also in the photo I'm not sure.
I'd like to verify if this story was indeed true or just made up by the author and I've tried googling many times without luck.
I'm sure it has nothing to do with Harvey Glatman

Help me identify this photograph
. The form I have it in is cut from a magazine (or similar) and then glued to a piece of sturdy paper, the person I got it from doesn't remember where she got it. I just think it's a really nice picture and wonder if it'd be possible to get a better quality version somewhere. I've tried googling around, but to no avail.
