Left Behind

Spotted at the 50th and Broadway subway station: Two lonely shoes abandoned by their owner.

Funny enough I spotted two lonely shoes left behind in the King's parking lot of all places this morning. They looked very cold.

I think he got new, fancier shoes and wanted these well-loved fellas to go to a new home. Then, some deserving soul came along, put these on, and was delighted.

Oh how sad. Great picture, but you have to wonder what the fella wore out of the station?

I agree with NAF…I think this may be the beginning of a good deed shoe revolution…

This would be a fun picture to look at and write a short story about. Hrmmm… maybe my writing exercise for the day? ha, ha :)

You have a great eye! Love that we get to see these 'little stories' thanks to your pictures!

Either that's a terribly poignant photo or a terribly practica/romanticl former shoe owner. He probably left them behind so that he could stuff a gross of macaroons in his bag for his girlfriend.

I look forward to reading your blog and seeing your amazing photographs everyday. Any chance of selling a group of your "white" photos of Paris?
