What Comes Home…

Macro Mondays [August 6: Sports Shoes]

As you can tell from my stream, I enjoy the sport of hot air ballooning. This often involves leaving home in the dark of night, sharing the highway only with tractor-trailers, in an effort to arrive at a launch location in the pre-dawn hours.

Besides collecting snaps and video clips, my shoes collect the debris you see above. Thank goodness they’re washable!

    Cool shot…after reading your description, the light gives me the impression of a headlight shining in the predawn darkness. HMM!

    Nice to see a well worn pair – some sport shoes look too ‘fresh from the box’! Not these. Very cool picture HMM

    Nice close up with good detail – glad to see no cow dung there! 🙂

    Brave girl – have done this once and I really enjoyed it, but not sure that I could do it regularly, although you must get some gorgeous aerial views! 🙂

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/vangoffy] No, lol! I’m careful not to carry home any poo and will brush off most of the wet grass – there were a few stragglers willing to pose for this shot. I haven’t yet been on an untethered flight – too expensive, but I do go to as many lift-offs as humanly possible. Just love it!
