now my last post and picture involving footwear (small-shoes) had an easy to think of reason for their placement at the bus stop.
These shoes, or perhaps both posts should have referred to boots, were a different and much curiouser proposition.
Just outside and to the right of the same bus stop, opposite the church, they stood.
Upright, pointing in different directions, slightly dusty and worn why had they been abandoned. They don't look like they fell from a bag, I doubt they were kicked off in childish abandon...I forgot to look on the return journey to see if they were still there.
An unsolved mystery?
