Good old faithfuls

By C_G
So this newbie is still finding her way around this awesome site, and I stumbled across the groups and the weekly black & white challenge organised by cattyal (Alison M).

I entered this image into the weekly challenge for FOOTWEAR and I got the gong - totally gobsmacked and really honoured. Smile (I'm not used to winning anything! Especially didnt expect it when the guys and gals entering are uber talented!!

Anyway, hope you like the shot as much as I love the cons themselves Smile

I must be living in a parallel universe...what are 'cons' and Sketchers?

Good image, though.Smile

Its very good. Its HOW the shot was taken that makes the difference; Low down, and an arrangement thats dynamic, suggesting movement. The small things like this separate the great from the mediocre.


Well done.

Thanks for the lovely comments Willie. I must admit that I must have taken about 70 shots before coming close to something I was happy with. Even then, it wasn't what I originally had in mind.
