Hoboken sidewalk shoes
Since Hoboken411 started almost two and a half years ago, if you guessed that I’ve taken tens of thousands of pictures around town, you’re right!
And as with any kind of photography-related project, most pictures don’t “make the cut” for one reason or another. Naturally, with digital photography, you can pretty much take hundreds of extra pictures to be sure you get one that you’re satisfied with. Other times, you just snap pictures for no reason.
This is one of those instances.
Can you guess the reason why the shoes in each of these pictures were on the sidewalk? I’d assume that the kids shoes were lost, or fell off a stroller. But the adult shoes, I’m not sure why they’d be on the street!
Was it someone “donating” them to a random homeless person? Was it a homeless person who just “left them in the closet?” Or maybe a drunk person just dropped them while stumbling home.
Whatever the reason, it always seems out of place, doesn’t it?
