This isn’t my shoe. It was just sitting there. Honest.
Tuesday morning — sitting on one of those granite Metro benches as I changed trains at Crystal City.
So I grabbed a shot with my phone in the two minutes before my train came.
I had to rest the camera on the bench because it is dark in there and flash would have been totally inappropriate. The picture is still pretty cruddy. So as much as I dislike doing it, I “rescued” the shot with PhotoShop’s Dry Brush — and the result probably says as much as an image more precisely captured and rendered.
I’m sure there is a story behind the shoe, but I don’t know if it would be at all interesting.
