    Hey Stan. Some nice snaps tonight. I think this is my favorite. I know its' a bit offbeat, but for me this one tells a "story". Not sure what the story is but that doesn't matter so much. The shoes in this context seem to take on some kind of dramatic quality. The out of focus background lets us know exactly what the main focus is, and the out of focus woman in the background kind of makes the whole thing click, like she is seeing what we are seeing and seems to be thinking the same thing we are "what the heck are those shoes doing there?. Does that make sense? The colored smoke shot, and statue with hands and bird, and fireworks were others I liked, but this was a standout for me. If possible shoot raw, and get thee to lightroom, I think you'll dig it.

    Yea, usually you only find one-shoe as this is a pair which is bit eerie

    Thanks. I suppose that shoes can have all sorts of symbolic meaning depending on the circumstances.
