w3.fifty2 - Shoefiti - Vintage

This weeks photo is a pic of boots that have been thrown over powerlines. Saw this while driving around my little town... Used my M50 f1.7 and was processed with Snapseed & Filterstorm on the iPad.

 

Shoefiti is the practice of throwing shoes whose shoelaces have been tied together so that they hang from overhead wires such as power lines or telephone cables. The shoes are tied together by their laces, and the pair is then thrown at the wires as a sort of bolas. This practice plays a widespread, though mysterious, role in adolescent folklore in the United States.

 

Update: Also seen in other parts of the world like Belgium & Australia.!!!
