Tagged B: Boots

IMG_4386

The Museum of Photographic Arts at the Balboa Park in San Diego has a collection for youth (K-12) photos. There you can view the places and people through the eyes of young kids. Among all the photos, this one named “Old Boots” caught my eye.

Why a pair of old boots? The young photographer explains, “These are my dad’s old boots, well it’s history for me. He’s had these boots since he was 17, and that was a long, long time ago. He said these boots have seen lots of adventures out in the world. I think the wrinkles on these boots look like the ones on my dad when he smiles.” He is only a 3rd grade student.

Visit Frizz Tagged B and many creative entries.

Happy Friday :)

  1. Glad you mentioned this as we are going to San Diego during spring break. The kids would enjoy such an exhibit as both are aspiring photographers.

      I had an impression that the exhibit was going to end in Feb, I could be wrong about the date. They may have other youth photos for display. Btw, the mini trains at the lower level of the Train Museum is a must for kids and adults.

      Thank you, Doda! I loved his comment and was surprised that a 3rd grade kid would notice wrinkles and compare with the boots :) Enjoy the weekend!

  11. hi Amy, thank you for telling the boot’s story – there is a song by Ry Cooder: “if things could talk”

  12. The young photographer does have a very artistic eye. Not only he captured a very interesting subject but something that is both personal & meaningful to him and his dad. Really cool!

      He does have the sensitivity, and use his dad’s boots to express… That’s why I love this photo :) Thank you for letting me share it with you, IT!
