From a boy's pocket? Great take on the challenge and not so teeth jarring uncultured. Nice one

Nicely placed lint, doubling up on the lint-ness!

Just my musings:

My first thought is: not that interesting of a photo. Not that interesting of a use of lint. But then I read the title. (I have a tendency to pay little attention to titles for the most part. I'm always curious what the photo says without them.)

But here is a clear case where the title makes the story, puts everything into place, and actually feeds the emotion. What a title is supposed to do, and hardly ever seems to do it.

I could see a guy pulling things out of his pocket and leaving the lint with the items. It added such a human element to it, I wanted to look more. I noticed the old nickel immediately -- didn't know how old, but it was so worn. Then I noticed the wheat pennies. Was this a memory from a long time ago with the old coins? Or did dad empty his change collection to go traveling one more time with son?

Not sure I like the shadows coming down toward me.

You took a 5 photo to an 8 because of a story that worked well.

Lints telling a story- I like that! And using the map with "lint"-town is really adding a fun touch
