October 2008 Theme Day: Lines


Debbie shot this photo of "shoefiti" (shoes slung over a power line)! Some call shoe-slinging folk art..others will tell you it has to do with the human need for self expression.

The Urban Dictionary defines "shoefiti" as "the artistic expression of slinging shoes tied together by their laces over power lines. Generally photographs are taken of the shoefito for distribution among fellow "artists" as well as the general public."

The City Daily Photo Bloggers Theme for October 1, 2008 is "Lines".

Shoefiti? What will these kids think of next? Do they try getting back the shoes afterward or do they only use old pairs?

I thought I had heard it was to show where you could buy drugs... maybe that was misinformation...

It does mean that there are drugs sold in the neighborhood. I love that they call it "art" though!
