The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Well over 30 year old sturdy boots
used for tromping in the snow and skiing.

Are those Wolverine boots? I'm curious just because they're obviously a good brand to look like that after 30 years of use!

I'm not sure as they only have Vibram embossed/written on the soles...any id inside has disappeared. My husband takes unbelievable good care of his belongings. Huge attention to detail.

Ah, old friends. Obviously very well made old friends!

An image to hit the heights. Loved it.

I have a great pair of hiking boots - but they are only 8 years old. They replaced a pair I had had for about 8 years also ... the current pair are good to go for another 8 at least. A wonderful investment and this year I hope they carry me to the top of Snowdon.
