Don't fret, it's just Charles Ford's photography blog.

Wall Street Pranksters?

Actually I ran across this scene a couple of months back, I think the shoes are still hanging in the same spot.  This is on the street where I live.  One can only speculate on the story behind this one.   Usually it is athletic shoes you see in this predicament.

    Don’t worry, I didn’t know either until I made a similar image and my daughter explained what it was! Apparently, in UK urban areas it can indicate that drugs are sold nearby.

  2. Yikes! Rather fascinating wiki article, thanks Colin. Since this is so close to home, I am going with the “bully throws shoes where owner can’t get to them” explanation for this one.

    My guess is that the high wire artist was abducted by aliens just after he tied his shoelaces together. The shoes were left behind because, as everybody knows, aliens don’t wear them. Fascinating photo.

  4. Wow. I’m usually the first person to drag out the old alien abduction scenario, but I confess it hadn’t occurred to me in this case. Yes, people, we are joking. At least I am. I can’t say for certain about Ken.
