These boots wern't made for walking

Newtown, Pennsylvania

Only a few days left in Newtown so I've been walking around as much as possible. I took my 50mm 1.4 lens with me the other day hoping to get a few street shots and here's one of them.
This guy looks like he could be waiting for a bus or maybe a stagecoach. However sometimes things aren't as they seem. How do you like his boot(s)?

  4. Fabulous ! Right moment at the right place! (But only in USA those kinds of boots could be seen Ü)
    Glad to be in time to catch you before you leave!
    Iceland was also on my dreams list since years and years; I'm glad to share the pictures with you.
    Have a nice travel on your way back to California; My thoughts will be with you all along the road!

  7. Great capture and title. I agree. Those boots definitely weren't made for walking.. They were made for you to photograph.

  9. The strange thing is, his shadow seems to be bending over to examine the pavement.

    Hope the move goes well.

  12. This is such a fun shot James.
    You will miss Newtown....as I do. I've loved seeing shots through your eyes-reliving this spot or that.
    Safe travels. Looking forward to seeing your new world.

  13. O-M-G !!!! That is soooo funny. Everything is so perfect; his facial expression and stance, the alignment, the sunny clear foreground, his shadow, and the nicely blurred background. What a winner. You have great instincts!! I've been laughing the whole time I've been typing!!!

    You'll be seeing regular size cowboy boots soon. Have a safe and fun trip. I can't wait to see what you come up with from the road... Happy Trails...
