abandoned shoes

Ok, I know everyone doesn't share my attraction to abandoned shoes, but here's a pair i passed on a long urban ramble last weekend that caught my eye. I particularly liked the pigeon-toed posture. Some awkward soul was swept up in a rapture, i reckon.

 

Posting this, i'm reminded that it was this particular preoccupation that led me to flickr in the first place. I had exchanged a photo or two of abandoned shoes with Heather Champ, back when she had her solo photoblog. Then she started flogging this "flickr" site when it started up. I thought "that's never going to fly". Ha! Anyway, I followed her here, and here I am. Riveting story, no?
