Maybe it was the fourth move in less than three years, the fact that my life’s possessions are spread across 10,000 miles, or just basic curiosity on my part but I have been photographing lost items. Those things you walk past on the street and not really give much thought to. Here in Edinburgh there seems to be an epidemic of people losing articles of clothing. I first noticed it about six months ago when I walked past a pair of men’s shoes. Yes, two matching shoes sitting side by side on the sidewalk. Next to a bottle of beer. I figured there was a story in that little scene and the following weeks took me past lots more curious little still-lifes like that one. So I started pulling out my camera and snapping a quick shot. Of course, once my camera was involved the really interesting lost items vanished and I was left with mittens and scarves. Not quite as interesting but still a fun little photographic collection.
