Photo Hunt: Shoes


Or rather where are the shoes? My kids have, since they were very little always wanted to take their shoes off as soon as they get into the house or into the car or in a playing situation. I like to do this too and often walk around with no shoes. My wife therefore blames me, largely, for this failure in parenting.

It was quite normal in Singapore to remove shoes before going into peoples houses. I have some great photographs of large shoe collections congregated around doorways of preschools, houses and mosques.

Of course it is also fair game to take off your shoes when you are on the trampoline. The problem is that they generally end up underneath. At our other house, it was a daily job to go out and do a shoe round up in the garden. This week I found two pairs around that area.

It reminds me of kids socks, they always seem to go missing or one gets lost.

I always thought it was because I was Australian that I am, mostly, shoeless, even as I type now I have bare feet.
But my daughter also has the same habit and my husband does not. So it must be genetic.
Excellent photo Colin, have a good weekend.

You're right with the fact of Singaporeans mostly remove their shoes before entering :) except for my 2 kids which I've gotta scream at, before they run into the house WITH their shoes on.

I live in socks - mainly explorer socks. :) Well, it's cold in the house in Canberra!

You have a great weekend. :)

No shoes are definitely my favorite shoes, too!

Carver said...

I love those bare feet. I prefer to go shoeless which is funny considering how many shoes I have.

I walk around without shoes too! It's good for your feet, or so I'm told.

Great shot!

With the heat on, no shoes is the best just like what your picture shows. :)

Expat Traveler said...

i prefer no shoes also, but it rains lots here and i've taken to wearing shoes again...

Siani said...

Barefoot is definitely best. Unless you're like me, and you do stupid things like stepping on wasps - or cactus spines. Have a lovely weekend!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Cute shot.

Have a great weekend!

I'm with you - my shoes are off as soon as I get home! Oh, and also as soon as I get in my car! Great photo!

Show removal is no failure in parenting! I think it's a good thing!
