Taken for a local comp, the subject being footwear.
This was a little play on words from me as well. For those people who are not Australian. Red Back is not only a brand of boots, we also have spiders that are called Redback.
These are an old pair of my husbands boots that have been left outside on the verandah. I purposely left them there as a photographic prop.

    G’day Gail!
    Yes, and there’s probably a red-back inside the boot too! Doug should be careful when he puts those on…. This, I predict, will be the winning photo in the comp! Very well done! :)george

  • Hi George & thanks for commenting. I don’t think Dougie would be game to put these on now. 2nd place in the comp.
