View Full Version : The Boot . . .

I stopped and took a few of these today. They have been calling me to come over and 'shoot' them for a few weeks now. I think they make interesting photography subjects, but I don't like them in a way. You see some 'folks' from the "West Coast" somewhere near LA, moved up here and they think this is a western tradition, or something. I don't know what to do with right/left coast cowboys, lol.
Anyway they plan to buy and wear out enough of these boots to put them clear round their city ranch.
Strokes for folks . . . I will just have to get use to them.

It's a nice shot, Rod. They sure don't look like working boots, so how do they get worn out? Looks like they also wore spurs(?).

That is a great shot RJ. Very unique.

I saw a small ranch near Coloma in Northern California that had boots and shoes on the posts lined up all around the property:

Well thanks guys . . . I thought it an odd thing, but perhaps from where they are from, it is as thomascanty notes, something that is done. Might start a new trend out here, lol. I got a few pair I need to toss, perhaps, just perhaps . . .

Man I almost missed this one. Great shot RJ. being in the surveying field I can't tell you what I've seen on fence posts or stuck on trees. I've known surveyors who have tacked thier jacket to a tree, because it was on it's last leg and it was what they always wore when surveying. Go figure :lol: :lol:

Those whom get to spend time in the out of doors find many such strange practices around the country. I think them cute quirks of mankind . . . what else can one say of them.

Hell, those boots are far from being worn out. Looks like there are at least a couple of more years of good in them. :):):):)
Different image. I like it.

LOL, Ian . . . them there are 'Girl' boots. I am sure they are victims of fashion and not of wear.
