Nia, thank you for your wonderful support!
The mystery of the lost soles…
Sounds like a nice book idea… Thanks, hugs!
Brian….love the lost soul analysis. I feel like mind has been “hanging on a tree” for way to long….shalom en theos…jim
Mine, too. Thanks very much, Jim!
shoefiti – read one of my old posts – but i do like the lost “soul” angle 😉
Great post, Emilio! I had never heard of “shoefiti” before. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome Brian – and thanks for adding the link which I forgot to do.
Great shot Brian, thanks for sharing!
Hi Joanna, thanks very much for the comment!
LOL, I saw something very similar the other day, a pair of football boots doing exactly the same thing.
Football shoes??? Wow, what’s next…
Did you throw that pair up there just for this picture? 🙂
I’m not that creative. 🙂
I’ve made a few shots like this but none as good.
This is a worldwide phenomenon. For years where I live, I couldn’t figure out why kids were throwing perfectly good runners up into trees and on telephone lines. Last year, a photographer in the Ukraine said that he heard that it’s supposed to be a sign that a drug dealer operates from a residence is nearby.
It’s still unsubstantiated but I think it would be a terrible pitty if there’s any truth to that because wher I live, this sign is EVERYWHERE! It would certainly indicate how prolific the problem is.
Thanks for sharing the information, Allan. If that is the case, it’s truly a sad commentary.
Here’s the example from Poland: http://mothergrogan.wordpress.com/photo/olympus-digital-camera-25/
This pair of shoes hung like this for several years, about ten meters above the street level. The street frequented by drug dealers by the way…
Yes I’ve heard the same about it marking dealer zones. I threw a pair of wellingtons on my local power lines to denote that I deal in winter vegetables and soups.
Too funny! Thanks.
Hi Brian. Nice photo. I also taken many different types of shoes hanging from trees, phone wires, light posts, you name it I have a photo. I heard an urban legend that it means that someone (young child) has died as a result of gun violence. Not sure that is its meaning but I thought I would share.
Thanks for sharing. I never realized there were so many different theories/legends regarding this phenomenon. Here is some additional info I found on Wikipedia:
Great shot, and an even better title!
Thanks so much, Nikhil!
So funny … we see this site all the time – only, they are usually hung on telephone lines. I always wonder the circumstances behind this. Great shot and I love the title you used.
Thank you very much, Laura!
Well seen and perfectly captured!!!
Santi, thanks so much!

I’ve seen shoes hung like that over telephone wires. I think it’s a prank on the owner of said shoes. Great title!!!
Perhaps it is a prank. Thanks for the comment.
