Easter signals many things---leaves returning to the trees, a warm breeze, longer days outside.
Yet when I start seeing ads for Peeps and bone in hams, my thoughts turn to one thing and one thing only.
Easter Sunday is when I'll get to see all the new men's alligator shoes.
Or as I like to refer to it, the gator parade.
Actually I should clarify---most of the shoes are faux. Very rarely will you see someone who actually has real alligator. They are very expensive.
Naturally, I think gators look crazy but I'm eternally fascinated by a man would think a purple alligator shoe would look good with black pants. It's like a train wreck that I can't turn away from.
It is in this spirit of fascination that I present what I hope will be the first of many gator parades. Me snapping pictures of actual gator shoes I see on the street.
Spring has sprung and the gators are out!
