On Veterans Day, I passed by this pair of abandoned boots alongside the Monroe Avenue wall of LeStat’s on Park in the San Diego neighborhood of University Heights. Perhaps some street person lost them or they were left for one of the area’s homeless.
Why I stopped for the Featured Image is mystery to me. Sure, I remember pulling out Leica Q2 for the shot but not really why making it. The footwear’s good-looking condition and oddity of the location would be reasons enough. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/30 sec, 28mm; 10:33 a.m. PST.
