The cleanest shoes in town
A merchant scrubs down shoes before putting them on display at the city shoe market.

comments from website visitors:

Carla, my name too is Carla. I like your photo of the woman cleaning shoes because it reminds me of how many thankless jobs women perform in the world; yet in this photo, as in life, this woman and many, many others continue to carry on with smiles on their faces and happiness in spite of adversity. May you find a career that will enable you to be an advocate for many others! God Bless!
