My ongoing Abandoned Shoe series continues!
Hiking through the mosquito infested trail at Bob Woodruff Park is always an adventure. Sure, I remembered to bring the mosquito spray – but I chose not to spray myself. It’s not summer yet – surely the mosquitoes aren’t out. I was wrong. Painfully, itching, wrong.
On the bright side, I managed to distract myself by going down steps that led to Rowlett Creek. The creek wasn’t flooded (as it was last year) so it was a great time to scavenge for interesting objects to photograph.
Beer cans and broken glass weren’t very interesting to photograph.
But I did find an abandoned shoe. As far as abandoned shoes go – this is the abandoned shoe of my dreams. It has great color and in its former glory, it was probably a good looking shoe. It reminds me of a saddle shoe without the black band.
