Challenge: Stripes II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges 2014
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Bedroom
Date: Apr 5, 2014
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/160
Date Uploaded: Apr 7, 2014

Not really a set up shot - I had a different pair of shoes sitting there, and liked the way the light was hitting them. Figured the boots had a niftier shadow, though. There are two sets of shadows because the closet door, to the right of this picture, is a mirror. Morning light coming through the blinds provides the stripes.

Dang! Blind squirrel/acorn theory!

And no, Steve, not AF issue. These are, believe it or not, wickedly expensive old lady boots, and very very comfortable.

Wickedly expensive old ladies: the best kind.
Those toe caps look spit-shined to me though.
Would have been in my top rank had I reviewed the parade at all. Thank you.

For some reason I like this best. One wouldn't think that this subject matter would be appealing of its own accord, but the light and the composition make me want to linger. 10
