Day 11: 22 November 2010

What is in this photo: A pair of abandoned jandals.

Why I like this photo: From a technical perspective, this was at about 6:30, and it was incredibly sunny, but I changed the settings on the camera to acheive a more of a night-time look. Well, I say changed, I mean accidentally knocked the dial. But the effect was the same.

Also, I like how it sort of shows the throw-away nature of our manfacturable society. The ease with which such things are left forgotten and replaced without much thought. And, like the earlier picture of the cones, there is a great suggested mystery; who left them?; why did they leave them?; how can anyone possibly forget something as vital as footwear?
