Tanka : boots

give me all your best
no lies, don’t be a-messin’
something you call love
keep playing, we’ll be burning
these boots were made for falling

tanka by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Mandibelle16 challenged us to create something using Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots Were Made For Walking.  I loved that song as a teenager — still love it.  The whole tough chick story is cool.  But I am also a romantic  so this is the sequel because she found “a brand new box of matches.”

Okay, I was going to show you Nancy’s 1966 video that Mandibelle16 shared on MLMM but I came across this one and couldn’t resist because I love cats.  It’s a fun one.

Ok, I can’t resist.  I found another one Puss in Boots doing the same song, different take.  I love this one because I happen to think Antonio Banderas is hot, hot, hot! Just a little bitty crush, you understand.

I took this pic a couple years ago before I learned how to change the lighting setup, focal lenses and even time of day so there is a flatness to the image.  The windmill, truck and hen coop has good shadows/textures because 8f8, the creator, is really top-notch at texturing and his stuff looks really good no matter how you muck up the lighting.
