Unique Vessel

When my friend, Debbie, texted me a photo of the old boots she had just bought, I knew I had to photograph them before they became part of one of her art pieces.  I had so much fun playing around with them for some still life and macro shots.  As I mentioned last week, one of our challenges for BeStill 52 was to use a unique vessel in a still life; I think the boots were up to the challenge!

Linking up with Texture Tuesday today.

  1. Oh my gosh … do I adore this or what?! I love the bokeh here – the boots are so full of texture and the background so soft. Just amazing, Melinda.
