My favorite I already posted in September, but since it would be a repost instead of something fresh and new, I'll save it for tomorrow. Come back then!!

  3. Green, my fave color! A young friend of mine wore her green frog boot on her right foot and her pink kitty boot on her left foot last week. . .it was so charming. This appears to be a big person wearing these. A lovely shot,

  22. The phrase "these boots are made for walkin'" comes to mind. So I'm wondering, they look like work boots, of a specific kind. Are they? And what are welties? :-)

  23. Kate, thanks so much for your kind words on my last blog post. It is most appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you all for you visit and kind words. Come back tomorrow for my repost!

    tanty and louz, I have no idea what are "wellies." Perhaps Edwin and Lynn can explain!??

    These boots belong to a perfect stranger who was having coffee one morning at Starbuck. I didn't feel real comfortable photographing her from the waist down so I settled for a photo of her in her chair. On one of the blogs, someone mentioned that many photos were not as prescribed, but I think that others, too, if photographing strangers (especially in a close-up) might have felt the same. Good fun today. I loved visiting all, and I did but some had not posted yet so I missed them but I think I visited almost everyone.
