I have been thinking about this photo for a few days. It was actually taken by my husband in 2009. The image is of his grandfather, in his daily work boots, and his daily work overalls, in his mother’s rocking chair. To me the boots represent hard work and commitment. They have seen a lot of life, as has that rocker.
I think shoes say something about their wearers. What do yours say about you?
When you pull out your camera this weekend, try looking at the world from a different perspective. Capture the muddy cleats instead of the muddy face; the fallen leaves, instead of the trees from which they fell; of for some of you, the pile of snow clothes left at the door after frosty is built. [Remember to squat, and get close up to your subject. Be brave. Don’t wimp out on me now.]
