A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words...

I cannot tell you how many times I have been driving and am puzzled by the sight of a lone shoe in the middle of the road....it always leaves me to wonder how it got there and why there was only one...where was it's mate? Is it just me that sees shoes in the roadway or do others notice them as well? How about the shoes tied together thrown over power lines...anyone else notice those also? I've seen my fair share of those too, but never have I come across a pair of boots....not just any boots but nice black high heel boots! LOL imagine my surprise seeing a pair of those dangling from the power lines....the first morning I noticed them I figured some how they would be gone...some one would figure out how to get such a nice pair of boots down surely....the wind came up the next day and by afternoon they had swung clear from the center to the side and there they still hang.....After I took a picture I thought okay from now I'm going to keep a lost shoe journal and take pictures of all the shoes I encounter...of course since I made this proclamation I have not encountered anymore shoes, but it's only a matter of time, I'm sure!

I've been working on several art pieces just haven't finished any to post yet...I did however finish a sign hubby requested for his garage....I owed it to him since I had made him one before and then gave it away ;-)

  3. Hi Ai. That shoe/boot picture is terrific and the idea of a lost shoe journal even better. Cool idea. Love the garage sign. Now make sure THIS one doesn't go anywhere. LOL

    Those are my boots. I tripped and they fell and flew off up there on the line. It was really windy that day.

  7. Now for the shoes. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. What a great shot. I would love to hear the true story behind how they got up there. I bet it's a good one. I'll be sure to send you any pictures I get of lonesome shoes.

    I too am always seeing lost shoes, one shoe, and have been making up little stories in my mind as to how they ended up all alone. I think a lost show journal is an awesome idea, may i borrow it? Course taking pictures of lonely shoes will probably attract a bit of notice and I'll have food for fodder in my journal lol.
    Love the sign you made for dh, would he let dorothy in to see him.......toto's long gone but i'm still here lol

  9. I don't know about your area, but in many parts of the country, the shoes tied and thrown over the power lines indicate gang territories.
    High heeled boots....makes you wonder what kind of gang that is!
