I really wish I knew the story behind these shoes. I got them at a garage sale in Brandon, MB, Canada in the summer of 2003 or 04, I dont remember, for a whooping 25 cents. They seem very old and very used so they've probably seen their share of dances.

I submitted a picture of the same shoes to the Sepia challenge

This one does tell a story yet it leaves it up to the imagination of the viewer. One of the more imaginative takes on the challenge. I like it.

The aged red shoes really help this shot. They, in themselves, look like they could tell a story. Very nicely done.

Love this shot - the colours, crop, composition - all look really good to me. Very strong, with puchy colours.

I'm not sure about the title - I think the shoes look abandoned rather than cast off . . I think the title might work better in a flower filled meadow, or on a beach.

Anyway - good shot.

I like how the picture draws the eyes to the focus,
and the contrast of colours are very nice!

I like this shot's composition. Red shoes against water, perfectly positioned. There's a story here for sure.
