My trusty yellow hiking boots bought some time in 98 or 99. Front bits from the soles started falling off last year and I knew it won't be long, so they have to be commemorated now. Suitcases are even more ancient, probably from 60s they belong to my parents who keep their old papers, scarfs and gloves in them. Light was provided by a single desk lamp on the left and some secondary lights from the doorway on the left and hallway lights directly in front and above the set-up. I shot in raw and adjusted the mode for incadescent when opening the file in PS.

good subject matter, not sure about the yellowish color cast though.

Great lighting. The suitcase matches the boots -- so much better than looking at 200 pictures of shoes on a sidewalk, carpet, beach, etcetera.

Very well done

i like the tone and lighting of this shot. Gives you the sense of a journey coming to an end. Nice shot!

Nice orange lighting evokes quite a strong sense of mood. Like the use of the battered case to give me a context.

Little too dark but love the old luggage as a base for the "well-travelled" boots.
