In his shoes

In his shoes

Even before I walk a mile in his shoes, I judge him comfortable, more comfortable than I would be in his shoes.

Yoda said...

Those look like very uncomfy shoes to walk a mile in ;-)

That's a neat perspective. He looks relaxed from the way his feet appear in the photo. I like this picture, it makes your mind think of what the rest of the scene must look like.

annulla said...

Great shot! Looks as though he is taking a well-deserved rest; the angle of his feet really tell the story.

joy said...

Did he know you took a photo of his shoes? Thanks for the visit and the lines! Love them :)

Hmmm His left foot seems to be turned at a strange angle. . They do look like comfy boots.

I like the white background. You know I love Mackinac Island, and these carriages are one reason.

Believe it or not, I had shoes something like this in high school. But they weren't working boots, like his. I.e., I wasn't working in 'em!

inspired said...

Andrea said...

Looks like someone might have been taking a break from a hot day at work.

Moi said...

Joy : i don't think so he did, and am glad u loved the lines :)

DJ : u know something, that's exactly what it reminded me of too :)

Ruth : I loved the place too .....in fact I loved whole of Michigan that I got the chance to see :)

Andrea: it was exactly that!!! :)

Chad Oneil said...

You know, looking at this again, I also like the whiteness of the background.

Glad you enjoyed my Bridal portraits.

Cris said...

I don't want to be in anyone else's shoes, mine fit me enough and I am happy with what I can handle, oh boy, your blog is making me think today.
