As found pair of old shorts on scratched plywood board. It appears these shorts were left here to dry. I found it fascinating that the scratches resemble legs. Not sure anybody else has noticed this but it made me look twice. Hope you enjoy!

Lev pointed out that the scratches line up with the wrinkles in the pants. I'm disappointed I hadn't noticed this until I read his comment. They're so obvious now that I've seen them. Thanks for all the great comments on an image I almost didn't post.

I'd take the board over the shorts, so much texture.

I thought the same thing. When I went back to see if they were still available the shorts and scratches were gone. Hence the title "Runaway".

I noticed the scratches immediately, even without reading your notes :) Nicely seen.
