106 Photos of Shoes on Wires

For a few years now, my friend Todd (who recently retired his blog) has been taking photos of shoes flung over telephone wires. He’s now up to 105, and has uploaded them all to a Flickr pool:

Shoes hanging from wires, the silent witnesses to urban street life; koans for an age of mass consumption.

I made it 106 by uploading one of my own (which you see depicted at left).


  1. It more likely means there is a clothing donation bin nearby!

    The drug thing is an urban myth; check out snopes or urbanlegends.

  2. Wish I could find my picture of the end of the Milford Track in New Zealand. You’d hit 105 and just be getting started!
