Odd Shots Monday - "Boots & Bus"



Posted by Picasa


These were taken in Seoul, Korea.

Here is another photo and the explanation.
It is difficult to see the boots all lined up under the bus in this shot. The men standing to the side of the bus have on tennis shoes and appear to be taking a break from whatever they were doing. One saw me and pointed me out to the others while another held up his hand in the classic signal for "stop." I don't know what they were doing. They have "winged" symbols on their caps and are standing in front of a gated area which might have been a military or police compound. Thinking I might have breached some sort of security, I hurried on my way, dodging a barrage of unintelligable Korean comments.

So there you have the rest of the story . What do you think it means?

  1. I don't think I have ever seen so many shoes. Was this a bus station and these were driver's shoes? Makes an interesting story for sure.

  8. Definitely unique!

    To add more just go t Dashboard and edit posts --open up this post and add and save. If the boots weren't all identical, I might say they took off their shoes before entering someplace.

  9. Are the boots trying to get in the Boot (Trunk)? Or have all the drivers been "given the boot"?
    Great shot.

  14. Well, the comments are so totally punny. I have to say that I thought of Fred Flinstone and his car.
