ABC WEDNESDAY - "G" is for "Geppetto"

Remember Geppetto, the shoemaker who created Pinocchio? The shoemaker I snapped late one evening downtown reminds me of him.

See other G's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

This definitely is Old World. I wish there were a few Gepettos around my area. It seems everything is disposable and no one wants anything remade.
Love this colorful picture.

I agree with you, I do like your candid portrait of him... in his element.

G is for Gorgeous Gladiola

Oh yes, Gepetto. He must be handling Manolos and Jimmy Choos since people opt to throw away the shoes instead of repairing them. It cost too much. Beautiful shop.

I thought shoemakers a thing of the past. Great capture!

Cool colors. They look elegant and expensive. Does he actually make them?

Bibi said...

Not sure, Oakland, but I think he makes some of the shoes he sells, but probably not all...too many varieties!

FABULOUS shot, Bibi! Did you tell him you took the photo? Gepetto was my late husband's favourite Disney character and I still have his favourite Gepetto Christmas mug to this day. Have a great week,

I adore this photo, and think your interpretation of "G" is the most clever one I've seen! Gepetto - just brilliant!
