Neat take and good framing. HTD #8372786

Sonya L. Hatfield-Hall 2/10/2010 7:02:15 PM

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 #8372795
