Sometimes a shoe transcends mere footwear to become a work of art. Sometimes an advertisement transcends mere marketing and becomes a work of art. Consider this picture of a used gentleman’s hiking boot from Etsy.com. The perspective of the yam-colored boot in the foreground with golden-yellow tall-grass in the background contrasted against a deep blue sky with fleeting cumulus clouds is stunning. Oh! I forget to mention the vintage looking avocado green stool. Perfection! It may be my favorite photo of 2014. I cannot emphasize enough that this was from a private seller’s ad for a used pair of shoes! If my memory serves me, the seller’s location was somewhere around Fayetteville, Arkansas – Prairie Grove perhaps? Heaven maybe.
