Came across these shoes, or what’s left of them, as I walked along the river bank this morning.  Each was located within a 25 ft stretch.  There’s nothing remarkable about them and yet, these images have stayed with me all day.  They fill me with a sense of melancholy.  These shoes belonged to someone.  There’s no telling how they made their way to the river bank – might have dropped from a passing boat.  Who knows?  

I look at these pictures and I see loneliness and I wonder how many people must feel like these shoes – thrown away; forgotten. 


 Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
