A child's sandal abandoned and seen in the kitchen area of the old giraffe house. I wonder what stories it could tell?

Nice butterfly on the sandal, the tones heighten the abandonment so very well !
The cobwebs and peeling paint add to the atmospheric quality !

A fine example of the clothing item left behind. It would have some great stories to tell if it could talk.

This lone sandal somehow evokes a story of loss for me, as if it serves as a remembrance of someone now gone. Your processing adds a nice vintage feel here.

Kids lose their shoes in the most unusual places. I never cease being surprised by this phenomenon. ;-)
