Andrew Wyeth painted his boots walking Pennsylvania's slopes and fields.

The other night I looked down and became fascinated with the texture, mystery and form of old moccasins tossed aside on an oriental rug.

What stories they could tell of Amish country, Chicago, Philadelphia, Delaware; of hawks and falcons, cemeteries and ancestors; steeples, museums, artifacts and doorstops. They meander through moments of joy and sadness...knowing there is more to come.

My Dad told me one day "Look at his shoes!" Shoes can tell a story about the person wearing them. What does an unpolished shoe say? How about the shoes that are shined with spit? Look at how high those heels are? Go back and get those crocs because the pins cost $5 each. Perhaps each pair of shoes hold a story. Wonderful idea to photograph your shoes and think of where they have been and where they may be going. Excellent job!
