Work boots - B&W

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 25 May 2014 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

These boots were displayed in a bunkhouse to illustrate the lifestyle of an 1890s forestry worker. Even as I took the photo, I was anticipating processing it to B&W. But it turns out I like the color version as well, so I will display this same shot in color tomorrow.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

Excellent monochrome. Great capture of the details and textures. Boots seem to tell us about its history.
Have a nice week, Harry. :)

The black and white version is very effective. I like the range of grays and details on the boats. It will be interesting to compare the two.
