January 12, 2011 – Abandoned Shoes
If I really wanted to be timely I’d be painting abandoned Christmas trees. Right now there are a few on pretty much every corner in the Lower Haight. But today is about abandoned shoes. There are always abandoned shoes to be found on the sidewalks and gutters of my neighborhood. What are the stories behind all those shoes? Last summer, just to be silly, I started photographing them and putting them up on Flickr. I had no idea how popular they would turn out to be. I have to keep at it. Can you say coffee table book? This shimmery pair was spotted on Oak just down from the car wash. Hurry, maybe they’re still lying there, they could be yours.
