Abandoned Shoes: Flowers

I found these shoes in Squirrel Hill, at 3:07 p.m. on January 10, 2010. They once belonged to a little girl, as evidenced by their diminutive size and decorative flower.

The shoes are rain-logged, or perhaps snow-logged. The heel of the right shoe is resting gently on the toes of the left. The entangled velcro straps present a mystery. The unfastened strap from the right shoe is bent back and folded under the fasten strap from the left. Imagine untangling the straps, but not detaching them, and the shoes would be reversed — the left shoe situated to the right of the right shoe. (Does that make sense?)

Like the first pair, these shoes appear to be not just abandoned, but staged.
