ruby slippers

One of my favorite parts of the photo-a-day project is being forced to come up with a shot I like every day. It was getting close to sleepy time and I hadn't taken any shots I really liked. So I meandered around my house taking random, lame shots of stuff, waiting for something to catch my eye. But nothing did. Toothpaste, lame. Faucet, lame. Picture frames, lame. Finally, after having giving up mentally, I looked down and saw my wife's awesome red shoes. After playing around with the depth of field and lighting, I eventually came up with this. Had I not forced myself to shoot something better, this shot never would have been.
