Whose Shoes?

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 25 September 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

FOr Silly Tuesday I present to you an unsolved mystery. Last year one day when I was walking my grandson to his bus top, this beautiful pair of shoes was sitting on the sidewalk on the corner where his bus stopped for him. In the afternoon when I went back to get him off the bus, they were sitting on the bench down the street from the bus stop. WHat little girl could possibly forget these little shoes? What story lies behind the missing girl, or the missing shoes? Was the day so fine, she ran off barefoot?
I value your comments. Happy Silly Tuesday.

They are adorable little shoes, and I can't but feel that they must have been missed. Of course it is entirely possible that they simply wore out their fashion welcome ;)

Happy ST, Ruthie. I love this image and mystery. Surely she wouldn't leave them behind, they are so beautiful. Wonder what became of her? My guess is an adult surely didn't pick them up when she should have and therefore they got left behind, with many people wondering why. She was in a hurry and just left with the child.

Your composition really emphasizes the tiny size of these shoes. Hopefully the little girl had a fun run in the grassy meadows! The shoes stand out nicely against the bench. Happy ST to you as well!
