I’m big on 365 projects and the like so I’m starting a weekly photo challenge. This week the theme is to:
Photograph discarded shoes
I’ve always wondered about those discarded shoes alongside the road. There’s got to be a story.
Did someone leave a shoe on top of a car and take off? Did it come flying out a window in the car-version of “catch”?
I see shoes by the side of the road all the time. It’s not always safe to stop my car and take a photo, but I always want to! They look so forlorn – traffic wizzing by and no place to go!
If I stopped and collected all the shoes that I’ve seen alongside the road, I’d have a closet full. Maybe that’s what happened to this artist. These discarded shoes were collected and used in a sculpture.
I like to photograph discarded shoes so much, that I staged a photoshoot with a pair of worn ballet slippers. Used and discarded, but still beautiful!
