Two questions always come to mind whenever I see a pair of shoes on some telephone lines… 1-Why? 2-How?

Why would someone do this? Is it some kind of prank thought of by a fuzzy drunken mind? Or is there a deep cultural history behind it that I’ve missed? And more puzzling is how do you let someone take your shoes to do this? Again I must admit my suspicion lies with the involvement of alcohol. If you know the answer to either of these questions please let me know.

I would see these while picking my son up from swim practice, so I instantly thought of them for this theme. I had hoped for a colorful sunset instead of an approaching snow storm, so out with color and in with monochrome and backlighting it is…

Happy Shooting!
