Still There

One afternoon I went to over to my sister's house for a visit. As I exited off 485 and merged onto Idlewild Road, I spotted a small brown shoe in the middle turn lane of the busy 4 lane road. I knew instantly it was child's shoe because of its size. Of course, I pulled over and snapped some pictures. He's one of the shoes that I included in my last post "Fall Finds", but I felt he was worth mentioning again. 
Since the initial spotting of the shoe, I have been to see my sister 4 more times. It's been 6 weeks and the little guy is still there sitting in the same spot. Now, every time I take the exit and make my way toward my sister's house, I look for him.

How long will he last? Will he make it through the winter? 
I'll be curious to see!

Fall Finds

Crisp cool temperatures have replaced the heat, spectacularly colored leaves adorn the trees and pepper the streets, and the smell of burning wood permeates the air. This time of year brings about much change, but one thing remains the same: lone shoes still pop up all over. I just wanted to share some of my most recent

"Old Sole"- My Favorite

I like to give names to the shoes I come across. Meet Howard, a boat shoe. Of all my finds, this sole is my absolute favorite. Howard has come to rest in the median of a busy intersection. How long has he been there? I bet it's been quite some time because poor Howard is deeply weathered and old. He looks as though he's growing into the concrete and I can't tell where the median begins and where Howard ends. Are those weeds I see growing in and around him? How has Howard been there for so long seeing as thousands of cars pass by on a weekly basis? 
What's Howard's story, I wonder?
