Shoes…

#301 What does your #shoerack say about you? Do your shoes represent different aspects of your #identity? Or different interests perhaps? Do they remind you of the places you’ve been? The walking or running that you’ve enjoyed? The painful blister you got? For me, my shoes are the #wallpaper for the last few years of my life…and carry within them so many memories. One of the most evocative photographs I have ever seen was of a huge room full of shoes. These shoes had once been owned and worn by Jewish people; they had been forced to relinquish all of their belongings on arrival at Auschwitz. The room of shoes belonging to people long passed away whose #stories may never be told communicates well the importance and value of things we often take for granted today.
