My wallpaper theme this week sees me return to posting photos closer to home, of distinctive images taken in and around Cardiff. Europe’s youngest capital city, Cardiff is an eclectic mix of the occasionally ancient, the Victorian and Georgian, and the mostly incongruous architecture of the last twenty years.
A pair of shoes that someone has managed to hook over an overhead wire in one of the side streets near Cathays Library. How did they get there? Are they old and worn out, discarded? Taken from someone, perhaps by force? A different explanation entirely, perhaps?
For myself, I admit that I’m more curious to know how many people have walked underneath these shoes without ever looking up and noticing them.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
