I'm sure that she is in someway thankful to have such a well dressed husband though.
Perhaps CTYGGG can offer a tutorial on shoe photography for the rest of us.
While the boots are hard to see, that is to be expected when you capture the whole outfit.
I'm confident you'll get there, just give it time.
Sometimes I forget how peculiar our habit is. Usually it's the wife who has to hide the expensive new shoes from the husband. My sisters think it is really weird that I post pics of my shoes on the web for others to compliment. They think its even weirder that I have an Uncle Mac (online that is, we have an "Uncle Mac" IRL as well. Heck, they even think its weird that I have a website for discussing shoes. They called it my "Shoe Blog".
I know a guy who bought a really expensive shotgun and hid it from his wife for about 6 months. Used to work with a guy who had a separate secret bank account for gambling activities. We all have our vices, shoes are much healthier than others.
Good lighting is a must for a great picture.

Thanks to Cathy at Alden DC for once again sending me two pairs for size comparison. Loved the cigar shell more, but the 11.5E just fits better. I have four other Aldens in cigar, so one color 8 seemed the way to go.
They will break in after a few wears. Nice purchase & as always wear them in health.

Looking sharp! It's always great to see a fellow granny knot fan posting.
