Paradoxical Footwear

Merriam-Webster Online defines paradox at "a tenet contrary to received opinion." To me, the raindrops represent the received opinion in this photo--February in Portland can be rainy. The brown boots also represent the received opinion--February in Portland can be cold. The black flats with the gold emblem are the contrary tenet.

I know I couldn't go out with my feet that naked. I don't believe I could have done it even when I was much younger, which you can tell by the feet that the person wearing the black flats is, a young woman. Not that I'd wear the boots, either--I don't think they'd go up over my calves. Back in the day, maybe, but not now.

I go out in bare feet all the time-- especially under boots. I'm too lazy for socks.

Your fashion paradox makes for a fine photo. Cheers!

I have flats, but the boot looks more comfortable and warmer especially in Portland. You did a good job looking for a contrast photo.
