My Grandmother's Shoe

.. its not so much about the shoes, but the person wearing them
~ Adriana Trigiani, Viola in Reel Life (Viola #1)

This is my grandmothers shoe. It was shot last Christmas at my dad’s home place during our annual Christmas reunion. My grandmother passed away many years ago, but we still get together and enjoy our visits with family members we don’t get to see very often.

The shoe itself was hiding behind the kitchen door that leads into the old dining room. I spied it out of the corner of my eye and was compelled to photograph it. I have always loved shoes like this... they add a sort of je ne sais quoi to any outfit in my humble opinion. And I have a couple pairs similar to this.

But this shoe, it has character and a personality all it’s own.
