Dancing Shoes

No picture yesterday. Spent far too long trying not to fall asleep. Today's is a bit random. I found a pair of very old tap shoes while clearing out the house. Well, 4 years or so. Thought they matched my sideboard and lamp very well so I put the three together to make an almost naturally sepia, soft-toned image. See if I couldn't give it a touch of nostalgia or melancholy.

The lamp is always tilted like that. It's actually made that way. Yes, weird. Now, me being me, I couldn't help but fiddle, so here is a black and white shot to see how it would come out. I've tried to maximise contrast here.

I also realised that the old Zenit-E I took a picture of the other day had a roll of film in it. I've been running about merrily for 10 minutes using up the last handful of exposures, including a version of this very picture. I'll have the film developed and see what comes out. Hopefully my opening the back, only to discover a film in there, hasn't ruined it too badly.
