I got a new pair of black shoes in the mail today, just in time for Lluvia Flamenca tonight!!! But rather than show them off, I thought it would be better to photograph my old ones instead. These old beatup flamenco shoes have seen a lot of changes in the past couple years. They've been pounded, scuffed, torn, re-sewn, super-glued, and sometimes neglected. In the rays of sunlight, it is easy to see that they're pretty ugly, but maybe I'll wear them on stage one more time.
