What do we do with our shoes?



To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. ( http://athomewithbooks.net/2012/05/saturday-snapshot ) Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

When we are outdoors we wear shoes although recently there is a movement on barefoot walking and jogging. Enthusiasts think it’s more natural and healthy for the feet.
In some places we take off our shoes:  before entering a Japanese house, the Blue Mosque or before entering a Jump House.
Other places, like the Sultan’s summer palace in Istanbul, Beylerbeyi Sarayi, now a museum, we have to cover our shoes.

At other times we seek someone to keep them shiny and new. (photo: from one of the streets in Istanbul)

Erratum:Yesterday  our 5 year 0ld grandson finished pre-school and not as I mistakenly wrote kindergarten in my blog yesterday.

I see a children's book here ... go to it, Edgar! It's got such potential for a life lesson delivered in a sweet innocent way ... just sayin'...

A neat way to look at how and where shoes get worn!

Great thoughts on feet and shoes, especially since mine were aching yesterday after hosting a graduation party -- that's high school graduation, not preschool. Here's Mine

Wonderful! A very interesting perspective on footwear... The shoes piled up outside the 'jumping house' was such a familiar sight when my kids were young.

Fun post! As much as I love shoes, I prefer going barefoot.
