Jesus Saves, Cave Creek, Arizona, 2015

A giant boot promoting an evangelical concept dominates this craft shop parking lot. The motto seems incongruous when seen emblazoned upon a classic cowboy boot. The massive scale of the boot itself offers still another incongruity. The huge boot momentarily lives in the shade, and contrasts to the illuminated sunflowers arrayed behind it. The image offers a whimsically symbolic view of contrasting incongruities and cultures.

Texas? No surprise there, Rose.

I "believe" vendors make and sell boots like this in Texas.

Thanks, Stephanie, for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the incongruities here, and that your imagination wants to put the big boot to use for still other purposes.

Thanks, Dave, for your observations. The late afternoon light proved a challenge, but in the end I found the right vantage point, and the rest followed.
