SHOES!!!!!!

*swoon*

God I love you...

Robin said...

I thought you'd like this one ;-). So do you forgive me for wearing flip-flops now that you've seen them?

Nancy said...

Cute, Comfy!

Paul Nichols said...

I just got a new pair of Crocs. Hmmm, I wonder... Nice groupa black pictures.

Mishelle Lane Photography said...

They look like a favorite pair!

Christy said...

Shoes are fantastic! I love the angle on the top left! They look like images from catalogs!

Kim from Hiraeth said...

They do look comfy enough to wear with a little black dress and look fantastic.

Great black subject.

Robin said...

They are comfy, and I do in fact wear them with my little black dress :).

Robert said...

I love how you arranged all these images. It seems as though each one was purposely chosen to be in its particular place. I also like the varying shades of black and white from image to image. Great idea.

Robin said...

I did choose the specific layout. I had to go into PowerPoint to do it, which unfortunately meant that by the time I noticed that several shots were crooked it was too much of a pain to fix! Oh well, I never claimed to be a perfectionist LOL.

Janet said...

Those look dressy enough to wear to work!

Do you use Flickr?

ellen b said...

Fabulous! I'm getting my creative brain on for the next shot!

Raven said...

I love your collage - I agree with what Robert said about the positioning. It has a nice flow. I think the center and top left are my two favorite angles.

Jeanne Damoff said...

At first I was going to say "I think you need a few more pairs of black sandals" but then I realized this is a collage of portraits featuring one pair of shoes. Nice work. I bet they feel very popular. :)

Maddy said...

Day 1!
Cheers

Leora said...

Great composition. There's that tiny bit of pale orange on the top right that works, too.

Love the idea of nine small photos in a group. Helps when you can't make up your mind which photo to pick.

Carletta said...

A great collage!

Very clever and well presented!

Dianne said...

I really appreciate the work it takes to put together a good collage. This is a great collage

as Robert and Raven said - the flow of shots and angles is perfect.

Willow said...

Great shots and great idea!

photowannabe said...

Love the way you captured black in these shots. They look like an ad campaign. Good choice.

Mar said...

I simply love your sandals and the layout, it's perfect for the theme!!

colleen said...

Paint it black! Is it all the same flip flop? Four more and you'd have another TT.

Robin (the pensieve one) said...

Robin, Nothin' but smiles coming from me :). I actually have a few black flip-flop pics I intend to post for PB, but interestingly, none are my own (which I'm glad of now).

I can tell you had FUN doing this...paying honor to one of your favorite things!

Can't wait to see what direction you go in next.

Robin said...

Thanks everyone, this was a fun one to do. To answer a few questions:

I did it in Power Point. I don't have a professional account for Flickr (must get around to that one of these days) so I'm fairly limited in what I can do there since I've got two old blog slide shows of dead plants filling up my "groups" slots.

Colleen, it's all the same pair of shoes.

I've got something completely different planned for tomorrow, but you'll have to come back then to see what it is ;-).

quilly said...

Here in the islands we call them 'slippers', and these look nice enough to be considered "formal" wear.

Rebecca said...

I love the collage. Nice job.

Have I ever told you that I like your header? Because I do. :)

lynn said...

I love me some flip flops. That's almost all I wear in the summer. Nice group of photos.

Sara said...

A woman can never go wrong with a great pair of black summer shoes! Nice collage.

Mike said...

So many angles! I love it!

the teach said...

Great shoes. Are they new? If not they are in pretty good condition! :)
