These boots are made for walkin'

I had the idea for today??s photo several weeks ago when I took the train to Brighton. On the platform of our local village station there??s a bright yellow painted line for passengers to stand behind so as to be safe when fast trains pass through. I noticed that it made a good contrast with the blue shoes and socks I had on that day and wondered if it would make a good image. As I travelled back from Sheffield today it occurred to me that I was wearing the same combination of footwear so when I arrived at Fishbourne this afternoon I took the opportunity to grab a few shots. Luckily both platforms were empty at the time or I would undoubtedly have received some strange looks, standing there photographing my own feet! I decided a widescreen format worked best so only the yellow line is visible under my feet. I??ve boosted the saturation a little in Lightroom to make it pop a bit more.
