photoblog image These shoes are meant for walking

These shoes are meant for walking

Another one from my street shots archives. Everytime I look at this shot, I always wondered why anyone will design the soles of a shoe! It looks comfortable regardless, it really reminds me of that Jessica Simpson's song "these boots are meant for walking" but in this case "these shoes".

Okay sowwee had to post that before anyone else posted a comment, anywhoooo great picture, excellent capture, plus I love Jessica Simpson so score!
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Kehinday, nice to know you're #1 today smile
Very well done, Dotun. Just about any other way of framing this would have resulted in an uninteresting shot.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Martin, I really worked hard to achieve that smile
Beautifully taken

I guess you have your answer about designing the soles smile it's the new trend, I like it it makes it fun ! good shot, perfect moment Dotun
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Frederic!
The detail is peculiar that you show to us and peculiar also your reasoning. I like both! wink

Yes, they are made for walking. Very sensible shoes. I like the cut stone walk.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Sherri.

Make it a b&W image, crop a bit from the right and maybe it will appeal more to me :d

Suby
Dotun Ayodeji: I think Ellie has said it all below, I feel almost the same. Thanks Suby.
You have eagle eyes!
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks for the compliment.
Hi Dotun! I wonder if this woman knows that she is featured in such a great photograph! LOL! I'm sure she would be flattered. Especially with those nice shoes. : ) Great capture!
Dotun Ayodeji: Hopefully I get to see her again, thats if I recognize her smile Thanks Kay.

Oh flip! I've got that tune going through my head now!

I don't think this picture would look as good in mono, because the focus of the red shoes would be lost, unless you used selective colour. I like it exactly as it is, although I can't for the life of me work out why there should be all that detail on the underneath of what look like afairly ordinary pair of shoes
Dotun Ayodeji: I thought the same too, I think if I had not intended to reveal the details on the shoe, then BW might work better, thanks Ellie.
Funny one and nice idea !
