Still have a lot of good days left. Muddy from their last use, they rest on a quilt rack dad made on our front porch.

What a great shot, Sonya, and the tones and textures are excellent, too. Love the way they are peeking out from this hole.

Terrific framing idea here, Sonya. The rough fence makes a perfect surrounding for the old boots.

Honestly what I saw first was the boots through another cut out in the quilt rack. When I could not get what I wanted, I started taking shots from different angles. I was standing over it shooting at an angle down when I spied the arch. It took me several attempts to get something close to what I wanted.

Thanks for the kind words and I'm so glad you all, Elida, Bob and Errick, as well as all those posting before like Dad's Old Boots

Yes, there they are again. They walked their way to a my first BP anything beyond an EP. It took a lot of help from fellow photographers/friends to get those boots to this level.

Thanks for joining them for their trek through the world of BP.
