I will pass through on my feet...Deuteronomy 2 :28

I shot this picture of my shoes after I walked in the mud to shoot the previous picture in March of 1992. That was the muddiest spring that we had ever seen since we lived here. I remember taking my shoes off as they kept getting weighted down with mud with each step I took and walked home barefooted...I have no idea why I took the time to shoot the picture of my shoes but I left them outside of our door before I went in the house:)

I used a film Chinon Reflex camera...I wrote on the back of the print that I used Scotch 200 Film
and included the month and year. I wish I had done that with all of my film prints from years ago:)

    I love this and it reminds me of my childhood, I grew up in what can only be described as a swamp and I loved to play in the mud, I still do

    Thank you all for the comments...I was torn between using the previous picture and this one for the challenge and decided the shoes which was closer to the camera shows the mud more clearly in the print and also stamped it more clearly in my mind when walking barefoot back to the house ... My shoes were like carrying heavy weights on my feet bogged down in clay mud.
