Chatham on Cape Cod is a very pleasant place to visit, it has an historical lighthouse, a small but busy fishing harbour and a well tended beach. After a stroll along the beach I came across this depot for lost shoes (and a towel). I know this picture is slightly unusual for me in that I have photographed pairs of shoes, normally it´s the poor lost shoe that gets my attention and sympathy. But I like this scene because of two reasons:

1. This small jumble of colours on the sand. I´ve selectively increased the colour saturation of each shoe to make the scene “pop” a bit more and give it a slight colour film feel. By the way, I´m using Capture One version 7 to process my RAW data, which I can recommend whole heartedly.

2. And the question each pair of shoes throws up. What was the sex of the wearers? I´ve come up with my own theory and it´s this: The single flip flop top left was worn by a male, the two just below it by a woman, the trainers by a man and the other pair next to them by a woman. The towel is gender neutral. Does that match your opinions?

  2. They cannot be lost as all but one are pairs……lost shoes as you well know and record are always singles! (As an aside I struggle with Capture One…not sure why. Tried DXO as well but always end up going back to NX2 the Adobe..I guess it is getting a flow that suits you)

    • I stand corrected, David. Please forgive my slip there :o))
      As for software – I stick to what I can work with and, as you, if I don´t like it, then it´s out. Life´s too short to get in a fix about software.
      And Adobe have really annoyed me with this cloud thing – I´ve often updated every other version, but that is now not possible with this “renting” of software from Adobe. If you exit the contract then you´re back to the version you origianlly baught – very sharp practice indeed. Or am I just being a bit reactionary there?
