Don't Look Down!

Is there anything quite as unattractive as bowling shoes?  My daughter, granddaughters and I went bowling last week.  It was fun - but those shoes - oh my!

I brought my camera and a little tripod with me.  As you can imagine, I caused quite a stir when I set the camera up and knelt down on the floor to look through the view finder!


We actually had to leave a deposit and one of our street shoes as security.  Seriously, can you imagine wanting to steal these beauties?!

I love the photos. The first one should really be in an advertisement for bowling fun! Makes the shoes look good. :) Now following on GFC.
