Curious Leavings

When I was going through My Pictures today I found this shot I took in March at Stanford Hospital.
Jim, Robin and I were walking down the hall on the second floor when Robin spotted these shoes at the top of an escalator.
A pair of shoes abandoned like the owner had been snactched right out of them. No one around. No sound of running footsteps with a rescuer rushing back to get them.
Were the shoes lost or left.
If they were lost no one would even know where to look to find them.
Hmmm, a story?
Cinderella redux?
Robin saw the picture. She knows I collect shoes and stopped me - "that's a good one. get that"
I took the photo.
A collaboration.
