A few years ago, sister Lisa and I went on a Road Trip Adventure to Cape Cod and Boston because of niece Kat. Now we went again because Kat was working in theatre for the summer in the Adirondacks. Another adventure and another road trip. Last time, I was already into taking PhotoSchmoozer pictures of people and their feet. We talked about our 'someday' book about Unity and Diversity related to people and their shoes. Now during our time in NY state, the project continued!! Here are a few of the people we met and the shoes they chose to walk in.
We went to a Native American PowWow in Harriman State Park. I was so enjoying the dancers and the drums (and yes, the crafts) that I almost forgot to stop and realize that there were incredible beaded mocassins all around me. Here's one example - the man was quite surprised when I asked him to stop so I could photograph his shoes.
These belonged to the cutest little guy asleep in his carriage and I was careful to assure his mom that I was only going to take a picture of his shoes because I thought they were wonderful! At that point, she beamed and was quite proud.
These - well - sister and I were sitting out in Lake George one early evening and her feet were just poised for the picture taking!! These were the shoes that she wore for just about all of the adventure - never would have worked for my toes, especially since my surgery, but she said they were wonderful and that had to be the truth from her perspective.
We saw several plays at the Pendreagon Theatre in Saranac Lake and the morning after found us gifted with a behind the scenes tour. Here sat a pair of shoes that had been on stage for Dangerous Liaisons the night before. Looks like they were having a well deserved rest.
