I’m not sure the reasons behind people throwing pairs of shoes over power lines, but I see it in certain neighbourhoods pretty often. I came across a few other instances on this day, but this was my favourite of the bunch.

There are photos to be constructed with power lines criss-crossing the sky, but I wasn’t very successful in my other shots. I’ll post another one soon that doesn’t quite work for me.

The suburbs are insufferably bland and monotonous, you don’t see many indications of life or rebellion (the occasional less-than-well-tended lawn, perhaps). I’m always attracted to photographing this type of thing, or graffiti, in the urban areas. Like you said … character.
