Climbing to the top of the social ladder can be a risky business. Is it one that I wish to undertake? I don’t think so… I’d rather lead a simple life and enjoy its many simple but authentic pleasures.

This self-portrait is a rework of an older image I had uploaded more than two years ago. I wanted the shoes to stand out a little more in this one.

The photo was made with my Nikon D60, and all the technical stuff about the photo shoot per se, can be found in the description of Social Climber .

The new version has been processed in Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS4

  • Thank you Vikram! I agree that the shoes now detach very nicely from the peachy-pinkish wall. I cleaned up the ladder too! ;-)
