Real torture would've been an endless loop of Christmas Shoes, amirite?
Whipped this up for Ridney on the Haven today while I had some time before heading out to eat for some Italian food with the girlfriend. I saw a model online with yellow heels on, and I thought that it was quite a striking image, and dwelled on it for sometime, wondering why someone would buy a pair of shoes like that, especially when they didn't really match the outfit. Then I realized I was quite focused on them, and that gave me the kernel I needed to whip up this caption.
The hardest part ironically was finding the perfect photo that would draw attention to them, but still had the model's face in the actual picture. I can't tell you how many pictures were just from the knees or ankles on down to the shoes. They looked great, but I really didn't want to give someone a caption with just the bottom 5th of a woman unless they were huge fans of feet. I have no idea if Reggie was a foot fetish enthusiast, so I went with my original thought. It took about 10 minutes to find this one, and I'm glad I did, since I think it does make the story much more palatable. I did a bit of Photoshop alteration to bring out the yellow a bit more with a few color adjustments. At one point, I had thought about doing a black and white wash effect to leave just the yellow shoes, but in my opinion, the rest of the photo is monochrome enough that I didn't think it needed to be done. I also thought that it'd be a bit too gimmicky if I made all the "YELLOW SHOES" stand out in yellow. If I had made this caption in 2009, I probably would have succumbed, and overall it would have suffered for it.
Have lots of little chores and things that need to be done this weekend so we can do family traveling when Easter hits in two weeks. Not sure if I'll be posting on Saturday or Sunday, though I plan to post on one of those days. I guess we'll see how I feel tomorrow evening. Hope everyone dropping by here has a wonderful weekend with lots of fun activities to keep you busy!
