366 Challenge 142: Shiny



I have hardly touched the camera this weekend mostly working, but I just realized that I took this picture last weekend. J and I was waiting for O to pick C up from a birthday party and she was really grumpy from just waking up, not in the mood for being photographed. I turned my lens to her shoes. Red shiny shoes, I bought these when she was a little baby and they are still too big, but we both love them, so she has worn them this winter. I was supposed to have posted the picture in colour, but then I tried it in greyscale and liked it better this way.

I remember cute kids shoes, with things embroidered on, and so shiny!

This weekend seems to have been quiet for everyone, I've been circling round all the Blogs repeatedly, looking for updates to read! (Yes, it's been a house-bound quiet weekend for me...).

Nice photo for the shiny theme - and I hope she's not grumpy anymore!

It is oh, so shiny! Love the black and white...

Lovely photo, they look a really cool pair of shoes! Works well in B&W.

What a sweet photo. I can see a very proud J in her shoes (another time when she's not grumpy that is).
Very nice in B&W. Also a very cool interpretation of the theme.

one more boiled peanut, please said...

I really like this shot. How creative are you! Grammom

You are just the best!! I have been banging my head against the wall *not literally!* today with work, school and kids and then I look in here and you really lift me up.

dogeared: They are very special to me. Regarding the grumpyness, she is grumpy about 50 times a day, but equally she is the happiest, it's a roller coaster living with w 2yearold..

julie m: Thank you, I also thought they looked good in Bland and White.

julie b: They are very cool. She is very proud of her red shoes (well, it's really the only pair of shoes she owns at the moment, part from her wellies)

crille: You have seen her both in the shoes and grumpy. :)

grammom: Thank you for your lovely comment, I feel anything than creative some days so your comment really lifted me this evening.

All: I am ridiculously busy this mid week, will probably have time to do some blogging tomorrow, if not at least a browse through your newest photos!

This is a beautiful close-up Mia, especially with the black and white enhancement. Perfect for the theme...
