Oversized Shoes

Paola, one of the Twisters, came to visit us a couple of days ago.  She was very cheerful and restless as kids are when they’re three-years old.  This time she wanted to play being a grown-up fitting all of my wife’s shoes.  I’ve seen this behavior before in other children as well.  It’s fun to watch them do all of these crazy things.

Below is a picture of Paola wearing my wife’s tennis shoes.  The bright colors of the sneakers and the socks gave me the impression of a clown with oversized shoes.  Here we go.

  1. Morning!
    I watched “TIME ZERO” on Netflix last night. It was about Polaroid’s decision to stop producing their film due to declining sales. There are apparently a significant number of folks still in love with the purity of instant photos.
    Knowing your passion for photography, I think you would enjoy the film.

  2. Morning Jim & Nena:

    I love NetflixI; watch it a lot. In fact, more than I should, but I just can’t help it. The content is great and the HD (High Definition) quality is amazing.

    Previously I had a Firefox extnsion which allowed me to watch Netflix in the U.S. version, but something happened and now I can only view the Latin-American version. BTW, instant pictures are also available with digital photography and a lot cheaper.

    Having said that, I’ll try to see if the LA version inludes “Time Zero”. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the tip.

    Best Regards,


  3. Clown shoes is exactly it! Before some clowns got a little creepy, those oversized shoes, a red nose, and a flower in the lapel that squirted water were always part of their appeal.

    A side note: the editing program I use has a “polaroid” function, that squares up any photo and makes it look just like an original.

  4. I’ve seen pictures of clowns wearing the attaire you described in your comment. That’s a classic circus clown.

    Post processing is a very interesting part of photography. You can do just about anything with a picture and a computer with the right software. I’m studying HDR and what I’m reading is absolutely awesome. Photography rocks!
