It's a weird thing of mine, but I love pictures of shoes. There's such a sense of possibiity.
Strangely, I rarely take shots of shoes myself -- I just adore it when I come across a shot like this.
Thanks to helloyarn for a great inspirational moment. I simultaneously thought of hiking trips, the creative impulse, my parents' respective button collections, and my wife and me having kids (coming in a couple of years, mom, I promise).
