Artist's Description

Some believe sneakers draped over electrical wires are done so to mark drug or gang activity. Others say this is an urban myth. I’ve heard both from people who would and wouldn’t know and swear it is sometimes related to gang/drug territory marking. I also know some of the innocent history of it like students throwing their gym shoes over the wires on the last day of school. So, technically I think sometimes its innocent, and sometimes… not so much. I don’t know which is true and I don’t claim to. Either way, I was heading to take a shot of the church around the corner and on the way there, I looked up about a block away and this is what I saw. I opted for this shot for the symbolism I saw in that instant. I hope you like it. =o)
