My husband and I are both avid music lovers and so last month, we took a short vacation to Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. The combination of live Blues music filling the air, great food, warm weather, and the best people watching on the planet was FAB-U-LOUS!

With the promise of purchasing a few drinks throughout the night, we were able to lay claim to a tiny sidewalk table right on Beale Street. Innocent observations of footwear fashion turned into a spur-of-the-moment photo essay. Not only is it fun to see what people are wearing but also to imagine what these people look like, where they came from, and where they’re going.
