100 Pairs of Shoes

Pair no. 8: On the streets of Philly, I continue with my quest — take photos of cute shoes, interesting shoes, and real shoes being worn by real people. This photo was taken of a woman who was out on a girls’ night out (I presume, since there were two other women with her). She and her friends were shocked that I would stop her and ask the question. “may I take a picture of your shoes?” In a way that only some women of color have, she went through her emotional display with alacrity: shock, consternation, surprise, flattered, and then acceptance. All in the course of 10 seconds. She is a girly girl and her friends acknowledged that these shoes for this moment were “blog-worthy” — and if you feel pretty, you are blog-worthy.
