This has been the darkest, most gray, rainy, windy Wet coast winter in a long time! I've been spending a lot of time commuting to downtown Vancouver, and like most people spend a lot of time looking down at my feet while riding the train to the city.
Usually that is not that exciting, everyone is suitably garbed in sensible black shoes or comfortable black rain boots...but, last week, I started to notice a couple of people who were wearing the craziest, most brightly coloured shoes ever!
I don't know why, but that just brought a huge grin to my face. One girl in particular, takes the same bus/train combo as I have been taking and wow, has she ever got a crazy shoe collection. Vintage, high heels, lace-covered, crazy coloured, not very sensible or easy to walk in from the looks of it! But hugely fun and creative! All I can say, is "thank-you" for that colour splash on an otherwise, dreary, depressing commute.
