In the recreational area of the backpackers in Tel Aviv.

Are these your shoes Louis? Well spotted!
Louis: Not mine Richard. Backpacker hostels have discards like this. Maybe forgotten, maybe one beer too many, maybe not wanted any more, maybe luggage already too heavy for plane. In the Tel Aviv backpackers, there is a tendency that good clothes get left behind, for whatever reason. They all go into a big display case and people may buy it. Backpackers are interesting places.

Good decoration, Louis
Louis: Definitely, Lisl.
I'd take my shoes off to that, Louis. smile
Louis: Two pairs of shoes and a painting - it must symbolise something, I guess, Ginnie.

Dream woman, no legs to run away from you
Louis: Now, now Chris. Are you socially challenged?
I like the painting Louis.
Louis: Good call, gutteridge. I was just starting to think we have a shoe fetish among SC'ers ...
I like the painting but the shoes have to get on the floor and off the table.
Louis: This is a backpackers, Mary
i believe this is the first instance of a painting with an arm hacked off that i have ever seen, Louis
Louis: Now you have me thinking Ayush. Can't remember an example, myself. That could also explain why she can't pick up the shoes and put them away.
A clever way of getting out of having to paint hands
Louis: A reason as plausible as any other one, Bill. When drawing or painting, I usually have a problem with keeping the hands in relation to the person.
Did someone leave behind the painting, too?
Louis: A definite possibility, Tom.
a modern impression of Venus De Milo with an extra arm... Louis
the moccasins were probably because they don't make great hiking boots....petersmile
Louis: People using backpackers hostels, normally rely on their feet to get around, so I guess you are right about a preference for boots, peter.

I read your comments. You might be right in exchanging these into boots for proper walking... these shoes are nice to go to the pub and get a beer...
Nice painting with it..
Louis: No, no - you can't drink beer out of them! If you meant they are good for walking to the pub, remember that boots are better to remain standing when the head goes soft ...
I really like this display!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth. It did draw my attention.
