A child who once lived on this property was deathly allergic to wasps. The boots were placed along the fencelines to encourage the wasps to nest in them rather than around the house. They
are still there to this day.

Nice black and white shot the subject is definitely unique. Excellent focus and good use of lighting. Perhaps a crop to place it a little off center, but still a strong image.

The title makes more sense if you know the story. As this is my first entry I didn't know that my comments about the photo could not be read.
They can be now though.

The lighting seems unnatural.

I definately don't get the title...but who cares. The shot is interesting to look at. Focus seems a bit soft to me though. It could just be the lighting making it look that way. Doesn't seem to be ideal lighitng conditions for shooting. I'm wondering if this would benefit from a less centered positioning. Something to think about anyway.

I don't get the title but I like the shot. This looks familiar - SLO? I would like to see this in color.

Soul ? Trying to sort out the title...

Bottom right is a little distracting Hmm I think it's because it feels like it's in front of the stump.
Top Right to middle is also a touch distracting, as it tends to draw my eye away from the boot.
