What I Found on Sidewalk by the Dumpster at School

I think it was the platform shoe.  I tried to imagine the owner of the missing limb. One day I saw a blue plastic crucifix and a spork on the ground by the dumpster.  Photographed that on my phone.  When I travel between buildings and arrive I am frequently amazed at the trash contents that spill over the edge onto the ground.  Used a wax paper sandwich bag to pick it up and photograph later in the afternoon as had to get to class- so it was not in its original spot but I was worried someone else would delight in the unusual found object.

Who do you think this leg belonged to?

    Ruth, this does not suprise me, I am so glad you were able to capture this! Love that show, jealous of the previous owner!
