The Lost Boot

3-image HDR, f/6.3, ISO 160, Nikkor 24-70mm, f/2.8 @ 70mm.
Found this in Brookston, IN while shooting this derelict building (which I will post tomorrow). It's a mystery how this boot came to be here, but it certainly provided an interesting photo opportunity

Terrific find perfectly captured, Rona! Have to add to the DST story - the small town near our Ohio farm was divided almost exactly in half by the Ohio-Indiana state line. We lived in Ohio but went to church, shopped, etc., in Indiana - you can imagine the confusion each year when Ohio switched to DST and you Hoosiers didn't! :-D

Wonderful find! In Tennessee, we often hiked on a trail called Lost Shoe loop- the shoe was nailed to a post!

Posted awhile ago, this photo has stayed with me. I'm so glad I found it again. It's a rare capture and it tells a great story.
