This is probably not the right place to post this post about kind of a project on vagabondism, but I'll do it anyway. It is about shoes, vagabondism and photography, so I'll let a forum moderator decide either to keep it or not.
I always loved Cinderella story because of the fact that she run away, but also because of the tap – tap sound that my mom made every time she read it to me while mentioning Cinderella's shoes. When someone says freedom, I instantly reply shoes or walking. Everything can be solved by walking, right? Solvitur ambulando. To think about shoes, in my opinion, means to admire people who dare to expand their horizons. 'Oh, my darling shoes and my beloved feet', as Erica Jong would probably put it down.
I don't know about you, but I strongly believe in my shoes and my feet because ‘my feet is my only carriage'. Don't get me wrong, I neither have feet or shoes fetish, only an unexplainable and mysterious urge to walk 'cause walking means to be alive.
A few evenings ago G. and me sat and talked about things from our childhood. I mentioned my great punk – shoes made by Borovo (Croatia). They don't produce them anymore. G., on his side, could tell how he was convinced that he'd suffered terrible emotional trauma at a young age when his mother one day came home with a new pair of ‘lovely shoes with great comfort' (mother's words), namely kickers - shoes. A very first look at these ‘brownish and truly ugly Kickers' (Goran's words), created an explosion in his head because he was thinking about tomorrow's day and bullying at school. Looking at him today, I can see that his trauma still feels very strongly many years later
. Anyway, inspired by our chit – chatt about shoes, we decided to start following project - ::addYOURshoes:: - project. The only thing you need to do is to go to our jumpcut – website:
find the button "edit" in the frame and add a picture of your shoe[s]. If you do so, you will actually make one great contribution to an experiment on/ in vagabondism
. Please, feel free to spread the word to your friends and family.
my fav. gipsy shoes (RIP)
