Lost Soles I

Yeah so it's a little cheesy, but I've a load of pictures of discarded or lost shoes and sandals.

Is it just me or does the color on a few of these recent posts really suck?

Joe and a Pile of Trash

Joe thought this pile was more scenic than the beach just feet away.

Floating Dog

In Ha Long Bay there are floating villages of fishermen sheltered in between the jagged limestone teeth shooting from the water. These are villages just like any other, except they are on floats rather than dry land; the people cook over braziers, hang out laundry and raise families;they keep dogs, sometimes several, letting them run loose over the rafts and bark at passing boats and other dogs on neighboring rafts. It's real cute. What happened to this one? Write in--the best answer gets a prayer from a real live Christian!

Yes, it's been a long time. Here are two that should have been posted a while ago.

Bellingham, WA near the Lakeway Dr southbound exit during a widening construction project. It took away a favorite panhandling place for the homeless drifters that settled down in the woods nearby.

Found in a gutter in Daegu, ROK while buying a motorcycle.

Good Stuff

Don't look under the bed in your motel room. I can't complain about this room though. It wasn't cleaned well, but it was huge and we got it somewhat cheap. It even had a computer connected to the internet. Jinhae, ROK

Found a pile of these beauties over looking the lovely Naktong river. I joke--and am ridiculed on a constant basis for it--about drinking the water. I guess some years ago, yet recent, there was a little problem with the Gumi factories dumping whatever they wanted to into the river. I've heard of colleagues recoiling in horror when Justin, a friend from Texas needing to swim in a dirty river, swam across the Naktong south of town. I have no clue what is in these syringes; I didn't touch them, making sure I had excellent balance while shooting this close-up.

Same motel in Jinhae, perfectly beneath the window next to the above pictured bed. I was a little curious what the view was like and found that someone had left a little something for the next guests.

This beautiful car was parked in the Skagit Valley WA, USA. Just up the road was a scenic spread on the Skagit river--a trailer, quite possibly a Meth lab, with two dudes sitting outside. I was informed of a "much better fishing spot" just up the river when I tried to fish on their front lawn. I wouldn't mind living in such a place, maybe even retiring there to a booming cottage industry. Get back to man's pre-industrial roots.

This hot ride was parked out on the Olympic Penninsula, near the Northwestern most point in the US. The owner probably lives on one of the cold beaches in the area.
