Old Shoes

Discarded Shoes

Discarded Shoes

As part of my ongoing effort to document the discarded items I often find in the laneway behind my apartment block, I present to you two pairs of discarded shoes. They’ve been here for a couple of days. I suppose someone will eventually take them away.

To be honest, I don’t really understand why anyone would leave two pairs of shoes like this in a laneway. A couple of possible explanations, though spring to mind. They belong to a couple of girls who were dancing while drunk: you know how it is, they get out on the dance floor, and they don’t believe they can dance properly unless they take their shoes off. Another possible explanation might be…

…well actually I can’t think of anything.

Who would possibly leave their old shoes in a laneway?
