Very interesting how my taste deviates from the public opinion, only the Jakov winner was my choice too.

Good to see also that the only topic I really did work on won me 3 votes, one less than the topic winner.

I was the winner of my own topic, which was having shiploads of fun with the participants and getting to know unknown territory.

Plus I am very proud of my portraits, esp Erik, Suse, Jakov and Birna...

And for those whom don't read Dutch, "de Halve Zool" on the sign is the name of a shoe maker shop and literally translates to "half a shoe sole" (which he apparently can fix).

In the Dutch language its also slang for idiot hence it complements Jakovs funny expression  ;D ;D
Cheers,

Are you sure that the sign doesn't refer to once popular, but nowadays mostly forgotten, procedure of "half soling" shoes?

Wasn't familiar with the term "half soling" but that seems fitting for a shoe maker, as mentioned it's also slang for idiot which is also fitting Jakovs expressions  ;D

The term "half soling" is still used in Australia and NZ. 

That said not so many shoe repair people are much good at it these days and even fewer shoes are of such a quality that warrant such a repair.  Never the less for an expensive pair of shoes it is still a worth while option when it is just the sole that is gone.

Nice image BTW.

"Half soling" is used in Norwegian as well. However, good luck finding a capable shoemaker :D
