I waited until the last minute to go shopping for shoes. I figured I could just wear my plain white shoes but deep down I REALLY wanted saddle shoes. I found them at a local school uniform store. They were pricier than I wanted to pay but I reached a point in my mind that I had to have these shoes. I’m used to seeing children wear this style of shoes– so when I put them on I looked like an oversized kid wearing them. Despite this– I loved them.
Before getting them all scuffed up (because I plan on wearing these shoes everywhere– I decided I should photograph them while they are still in their prime. And not just any setting would do. I needed to photograph them on hexagon shaped tile. Fortunately, my favorite location downtown has this tile at many of the entry ways of the shops. I waited until the shops were closed and headed over.
It was getting a little too dark outside so I had to use a tripod for the shot below.
Since it got too dark outside I took the shoes to my home studio for close-up shots.
Had some fun placing miniature swing dancers on the shoes.
