About A pair of hiking boots slung on a wire, hanging about 5-6 meters over a busy street.... now sometimes you come across something and you either think: how did they do that or why did they do that... In this instance its a bit of both... ;-D!!! BTW the squarish box on the left is a street light, hung that high so busses can pass without knocking it down....

Petal what an excellent shot, the sky is wonderful too as well as the silhouettes. I know what you mean - I seem to regularly see shoes in the middle of the road, - and I think - how/why/whatfor/ -....strange.
I see you are interested in the UF meet in Northumberland - the date is fixed I think Steve will be posting details today - do hope you will be coming - it would be so great to meet you -

Hahahaha...somebody was playing a practical joke on their friend and it backfired. Well seen Petal and thanks for giving us all a laugh.

Petal this is cute. You always wonder why they do t his rather than just throw them away. I thought when I saw this that maybe the box was his suitcase.. Good one. Don.


Jeanette Hägglund Jeanette Hägglund   {K:59855} 7/13/2005
Ha ha ha ha - yes a dangerous activity they use down (up) there ;D Good capture and cool shot!



Toshi  Toshi    {K:11924} 7/13/2005
Haha, nice capture Petal. I see a lot of shoes hanging on power lines over here in the States. I've only heard of one weird explanation for it which is that it means there are drugs dealers in that area. I have no idea though LOL.

dont know about the boots dear Petal but this is a great capture of a magnifiscent sky!!!!! look at those rays behind the cloud!!!!! excellent shot!!!!!
best regards


Angelo Villaschi Angelo Villaschi   {K:49617} 7/13/2005
Interesting shapes silhouetted against the sky, Petal. However, that cloud and the light shafts are real scene-stealers!

Nice work, Petal.


Alastair Bell   {K:29571} 7/13/2005
Hmmm..... interesting and something of a puzzle indeed!!! Well spotted Petal. Love the compositon - it would have been easy to shoot this with the boots centred and that would have made the shot far less effective.


Hugo de Wolf Hugo de Wolf   {K:185110} 7/13/2005
Hi Petal, This is an awesome shot. Not only is the use of silhouettes very powerful (and intriguing, as you won't find this too often), but the cloudscape in the background with the rays of light coming from behind is sensational. Very well balanced composition, and a very appealing capture!




Chris Spracklen   {K:32552} 7/13/2005
Nice spot and nice shot, Petal!
A funny 'about', too! )
Best regards, Chris


Laurie Gould   {K:11942} 7/13/2005
I love the rays of light coming out from behind the clouds. Great! :)
