Day 18 · Boots

Boots make for a great wall, protecting the owner from the results of all kinds of mishaps. Stepping into mud, water, snow or even worse becomes way less an ordeal if one wears heavy boots. Some boots are even more protective, providing steel caps to protect toes from heavy drops, and deeply carved soles to give a strong grip on all surfaces.

It's In The Eye of The Beholder

As much as boots protect their owner, they raise bad feelings in other people. Boots are usually part of uniforms and as such boots have been involved in lots of cruelties. This way boots can build walls by just their very existence, when people judge the owner by sight.



This one is perhaps just a little too dark overall, so that it is hard to make out the detail and context. I do see the shininess on the leather and laces which works well.

A philosophical take on today's world. In the image they seem to be a bit lost within all the other objects. Which also sets a certain mood.

Indeed, I went for that "hidden" look. It's a bit unusual to use low key to such an extent, but as black boots aren't easily spotted in sinister surroundings, it's a reality which is all to often ignored and overlooked.

Interesting low key shot. Though I agree with Kim - its a tad too dark. Though the context we view pictures in also affects us. I remember editing a low key photo at night once, thinking that all the dark nuances came out beautifully, the next morning however the ambient lighting made them go away. It's an interesting thought I think.

Feels a little too dark for my likes. As for boots, most, as you say, not so great, but I love a good boot, that looks cool, better than a crazy high heeled shoe
