Walking


Lost in the leaves.

Another day. Another walk.

Truth be told, these pictures are a couple of weeks old. I processed them. I tinkered with them. And, immediately forgot about them.

I don’t know why.

Sometimes, I get lucky. I make three or four pictures on one walk. I choose the one or two that I liked best at the time and move on. The key phrase is “at the time.” Often, after a suitable period of marination, I wonder what I was thinking during my culling and editing process.

I found these shoes where the trees meet the road. They aren’t Crocs. They are fairly inexpensive chef’s clogs. There is something curious about them. There is a pretty good reason why they were tossed out into the street.

Yes. They are worn. But, that’s not it.

Can you see it?

I’ll tell you what I see below the bottom picture.

The mate to the other one.

I have no idea why. I didn’t move them. I never flip pictures. These two pictures are as I found the shoes.  One in the street. One near the street. Two shoes. Two different shoes.

But…

They are both right foot shoes. Wearing a shoe on the wrong foot had to have been very uncomfortable. Especially if the person wearing them was standing on his or her feet all day.

Your guess is as good as mine.

  1. Mystery – but that makes the photos even better. That’s the part I find difficult. Take the pictures, then do not get round to filing, editing. But not doing that means you don’t show your work. Must get organized.

    • What I do is download and backup. Let the images sit for a couple of days. Then cull and edit. I have to be disciplined or everything piles up… as you say. For me, next stop is working through about 40years of bw negatives.

  2. Your color processing is so visually attractive. Your blog is so perfectly titled! I really find myself making up a story for these odd-paired shoes.

    • Thank you. I think that I might have gone too far on these pictures. I really try to let the picture teach me what to do. Sometimes it takes years and many, many different variations. Like a lot of things, “Storyteller” came to me one morning.
