Photo of the Week: All Stars

All Stars

The rationale behind shoe tossing (and yes, this has a name and it's own Wikipedia page) is one that I've never understood.  There are many theories: is it a form a bullying?  A practical joke?  A way to mark gang territory?  Or perhaps someone thought "Hey, I bet an urban photographer will walk past this spot and think this is an interesting juxtaposition with the Sears Tower?"  For lack of more evidence, I'm going with the latter.
