Got the boot

Ok, so I don't know what was going through my head when I shot this.  20 seconds @ f32?  ISO 800?  I had aperture on the brain. 

Regardless, I like the shot.  It's the right boot from one of my pairs of Doc Martin's.  I love these boots (obviously) because they are very comfortable. 

Canon EF 100mm f2.8 USM Macro lens

I like the shot too and you caught a lot of clarity. I need to stop hugging the wide open and use more smaller aperture settings.

Boots have so much character, they make great subjects.

Good boots are a valuable thing. Find such a pair, though, can be difficult at times.

Love this shot. Simple yet absolutely beautiful - with great character!

I used to love Doc Martins in the early/mid 1980's. We used to buy them mail ordered from London or find a ride to Hollywood. Both ways were really expensive. I like this shot it brings back lots of memories. :)

I don't know exactly what it is, but there's somthing really likeable about this picture! To say the least, the spontaneity!
God bless you!

I have been learning my camera as well (mostly by that magic magician Oz Moses) and have done similar experiments... for my nature photos I find that aperture mode is very bothersome and speed is my asset...

I no longer appreciate my "auto" mode...

Haha, what a shot! Great idea, Woody!
