Girls On A Bench

I passed these girls on my way into a store. On my way out, they were still there. And though it took me a moment to build up the confidence to ask (I am new at this, leave me alone!), I am quite glad I did.

Despite it having rained last night and today, I was amazed to see so many people wearing flip-flops. The ones photographed are yellow. Their makeup and hair is what stood out to me most.

I love shoes. Those who know me know I love shoes. They're a fun way to spice up any outfit. I am not one for uncomfortable shoes so I don't even bother with such things.

This last Christmas, a friend of mine gave me a pair of shoes. He bought them secondhand. I know many people can get a little iffy when you mention the word 'secondhand', but I assure you, some good purchases can be made secondhand. While these shoes may be clearly previously worn (scuffed), it gives them a certain charm. I wear these when feeling punk, and I often wonder who it was wore them before me. What did they do to give them such a scuff? Were they in a club, stage diving as they churned out the tunes? Were they doing something less glamorous like tripping over their own feet?

I wouldn't exactly reccomend these for hiking or running or anything, but they're fun shoes nonetheless.

I will be out and about tomorrow. Hopefully I will find a willing participant to photograph.

Happy New Year!

Yes, I assure you, I am still alive.

I'm even armed with a new camera, but have not been able to get any photos lately. I will post soon!
