I wanted to do something fun. I haven't worn the boots in a while...they're about 20 years old now, nice and broken in. When I did wear them I tended to pair them with a dress or skirt...grrrly.

Holy crap! 5th place! Wasn't expecting that at all! Thanks for all the comments and favs everyone. So glad many seemed to enjoy this one.

Ha ha. Good creativity and execution, nice 'artwork' too. Glad this did well for you. Your 'elements' and processing are perfect for this. Very unique.

quirky with the spirit of a someone who has stopped being busy with ideas of what one should do, instead found something waiting to be realized by letting go...

If you don't have a model to show the boots, than you simply create one. Well done and a unique photograph within this challenge. That, together with the good execution, deserves an *8* for me. Here you go. Good luck :)

Very original concept. I almost expect the image to animate and the boots to 'walk' away!
