Is there a story (or tradition or belief) to go with this story? *curious*

@ Diandra- a local superstition. If you have a shoe outside the entrance to your house, the evil spirit that enters the bodies of children and makes them ill will be kept away.
Incidentally, it is there in today's post.

I'm just now finding time to go through your photos. You have some really fascinating subject matter, and I love your eye for detail and talent for framing an object.

Thank you so much, Lisa. Looking back, I feel I should have blurred the background a little more, but I guess every picture can be improved.

This is a subject I loved taking a picture of, and it is going to reappear in the A to Z blogging challenge.
