Sort of a political post


I was just curious at a picture I saw on the web tonight. Why Shoes? My question is why would anybody take a picture of the shoes that the candidates are wearing? I don’t think I can recall any other shoe pictures. I may be wrong, but I remember a lot of Pant Suits, Power Ties, body surfing, hunting, fishing, and of course hand shaking pictures of any other candidate in my lifetime, but not shoes. Was there really anything stunning about either pair of shoes? The red pair did remind me a bit of the ruby slippers, but that is because of the color. Just wondering?

And then of course during this I also found this picture:

Is this making a fashion, religious or political statement? I’m not really sure. Interesting effect though. I may want to try to get a few of those for me. Could they put that on my driver’s license? Should I use something like that on my blog? Should I use it for my pic on a dating site? (nah, too over the top for me…) Maybe I could just print up some ‘saint j’ cards.. I could give them out to all my friends…

Then again, if we can get that effect with lighting, and actual naked eye seeing, a red light in the background could set the tone of something in our haunted house. Or we could go with the dead guy in the corner. Yes, that is really a dead guy in the corner.

Dead Guy in Corner

Oh well, I guess that’s all the good pictures I found. Unless I include some of my own. Just one uninvited guest at my daughter’s wedding last year.

Now he would be a good addition to the haunted house. A 6 foot gator on the prowl could get people a little jumpy.

  1. The shoes did indeed remind me of the ruby slippers… aside from that, I agree with you. A 6′ gator would make a few guests jumpy.

  2. If wanted a picture of you all glowy like the one of Obama, I could do it seeing as I have some experiance in Photoshop, most of it self taught by reading tutorials online.

  3. I curious now, I know that can be done in Photoshop, or a few other picture editors. I thought that a news photo shouldn’t have been Photoshopped. I have heard of some photographers getting in trouble for that. So I assumed it was a natural effect of lighting.

  4. It makes the picture more appealing, and I honestly don’t think they would get in trouble for it sense it is the artistic part of photography
