Scarecrow Feet

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 1 November 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

As I was taking photos of the scarecrows in the contest, I could not help but notice the variety and oddness of their feet/shoes. Here is a collage of some of them.
Update: Still no power, water etc. The power company is now saying no power until November 8th. Our generator is small and cannot run the furnace or well pump. Once a day I can access the internet, so will visit as many as I can. Thanks for your concern.
I value your comments.

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

A great collection and presentation Ruthie. I hope the situation improves soon, and you get power again.

@Michael Fresh: Thank you. I am glad I had pre posted my images here before the power went out, as I cannot access my desktop where all my photos are stored.

Excellent collage, great varieties.
Praying that your utilities people pull out all the stops!

1 Nov 2012 8:56am

@Curly: Thank you. I know they are all working round the clock all over the state of NJ trying to restore power. But it is so massive an outage, and we are just a small rural community, we are last on the list.

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Great idea and marvellous mosaic of feet! Hope your situation improves rapidly.

1 Nov 2012 9:50am

@Stephen: Thank you. SO many people are without power and trees are down, taking the electric wires with them, it seems unlikely we will get power anytime soon.

kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

Great array of shoes. So glad to hear you 'weathered' the storm safely. Hope you get power back a bit sooner tha 8th - that seems a long way away. :))

1 Nov 2012 9:54am

@kiwisa: Thanks yes, the 8th is far away while we have no power. We are wondering what happens on the 6th which is presidential election day here.

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Great collage.. well done.

Hope you will get the electricity soon.

1 Nov 2012 10:09am

@Sarito: Thanks. I am thankful for our generator in the meantime.

ursulakatariina from Leixlip, Ireland

Great collection of shoes!
I hope you get the power back sooner than they said you would. I hope all is as good as it can in the situation you are now!

1 Nov 2012 10:40am

@ursulakatariina: Thank you. We are handling it well. I go to the gym daily where it is warm and I work out. Many entire families are there charging their devices and showering.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

A terrific of showing all those many feet ... and shoes!
I do hope your power will be restored before the 8th! Our son-in-law stood for 2.5 hrs yesterday to get gas for his generator to hopefully save food in the fridge & freezer. Prayers all around!

1 Nov 2012 11:16am

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you. My hubby had no trouble getting gas for the generator here this morning. SO we are good to go for a few more days. Thank goodness our stove is propane so we can still cook meals. I got a supply of aluminum pans we can throw out.

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States
