Shoes on the side of the road have always raised questions in my mind, but when I saw these slippers on the pavement of Waverly Avenue, I had to stop and photograph them. They were just sitting there, almost as if the one who had worn them had just slipped into bed for the night, leaving his slippers to wait for the morning. The heels were smashed down from someone too lazy to put them fully on the foot, and one slipper had been run over by a passing motorist. Over the years, I've seen sneakers, wing-tips, baby shoes, and sandals left to brave the traffic of America's busy thoroughfares; and always I wonder at them. Do you?
