Sometimes found photographs from different places and times seem to belong together. Each of these snapshots features wall papered interiors and birthday cakes. Both however, also reveal the casual presence of a possible danger - a rifle aimed point blank and lit candles on a young girl's lap.  They are each interesting images but as a diptych their subtleties are accentuated and a new story emerges about odd and menacing birthdays.
