An artist has decorated the front of his house or studio with two pairs of athletic shoes nailed to a board. Just displaying two pair of shoes on the wall of a house is an incongruity itself. But the artist goes on to add still more incongruities– he or she paints the shoes in the primary colors of red and yellow, and arranges them not by pairs but by color contrast. As a final incongruity, the artist has turned the shoes into planters – filling them with dirt, and displaying a grass-like plant in each. Even the wall becomes part of the art – the yellow limestone, although patched and filled, harmonizes with the colors mounted on its stones. I moved in with my 24mm wideangle lens to make the shoes as large as possible, yet still get all four of them, as well as the yellow wall, into my frame.
