A huge shoe store in Hollywood. Every time I drive by I do a double take for the sheer size of the store and volume of shoes.
What a cool shot. It's like they are all set to run around the store...perched, until then.

Your photographers eye is always so fine tuned to get amazing captures, thats what I
love about your style and work. Great capture by a brilliant mind.
24 Nov 2010 5:55am
@Phil Morris: Thank you, Phil!
cool, so many styles to wear to wreck your knees (a personal take since I blew out da knees running to save my heart...what a choice)
24 Nov 2010 6:02am
Je trouverai très certainement chaussure à mon pied ...
24 Nov 2010 6:13am
Hey, a creative application of tele: the distances between the shoe walls nearly seem to disappear, so one might ask: is there any place for customers?
24 Nov 2010 6:25am
original capture, Betty
24 Nov 2010 6:32am
cool shot, nice one
24 Nov 2010 6:37am
I walk so much in Paris i'm sure i'd find my ideal feet here ! ;)
24 Nov 2010 6:44am
@k@: A pair for every day. :)
You like your trainers in the states, i see! Great shot, still nice and tidy in there.
24 Nov 2010 6:52am
just excellent 5***

The Art to build an Artwork with a single detail of Life.........I Love it !!!
24 Nov 2010 7:25am
Everyone can get his foot...Well done!
24 Nov 2010 7:28am
Comfort your feet at a Discount - Wholesale! - thats what I feel when I look at this capture. Wonderful composition, nice angle, well spotted.
24 Nov 2010 7:46am
Wow! What choices, what shoes to find his feet! Superb capture. Nice day.

24 Nov 2010 8:06am
Il y a t-il une paire qui fasse avancer plus vite ? Je te souhaite une agréable journée
24 Nov 2010 8:21am
j'ai une grosse préférence por les kinsei de chez asics, belle composition ! peace !
24 Nov 2010 8:27am
Excellent shot.. love the arrangement and colours.. How many did you buy :)?
24 Nov 2010 8:57am
24 Nov 2010 9:01am
They sell sneakers here? Bettina splendid image... Excellent work! Best regards, Adela
24 Nov 2010 9:06am
Nice trainers. Imagine if you got in and swapped all the boxes around!
24 Nov 2010 9:08am
@Sally: LOL! You're evil!
24 Nov 2010 9:24am
reminded me that i need some new shoes, thanks...
Brilliant shot that looks like a piece of modern art! It’s as though an artist has carefully placed the shoes and boxes to create this colourful visual effect. Otherwise, I guess you took this shot before the doors opened for the half-price sale stampede!
24 Nov 2010 9:37am
@Stephen: LOL. Thanks! No stampedes. Very empty. There are huge pane glass windows to the street. I was leaning on the car, steadying myself. I've often driven by, thinking of stopping.
A superb composition ! Great DOF and colors !
24 Nov 2010 9:41am
Really so very colorful and interesting in the way they are displayed! Fabulous shot Betty!
24 Nov 2010 10:02am
What a choice.... amazing ! I like the light and the selective focus ! Have a wonderful day Bettina :)
24 Nov 2010 10:08am
Stack 'em high, sell 'em low,Many runners, all to go.
24 Nov 2010 10:21am
The phrase 'Land of Plenty' comes to mind for some reason . . but, then, it has me wondering how many of those shoes are made in the USA . . . quite a thought.
@Ronnie 2¢: Absolutely true. Very sad state of affairs.
Seeing all those feet, I think of all the hands who made them, far away ...
24 Nov 2010 10:55am
Original capture! Amazing. Woderful light and colours. Good day. :-)
24 Nov 2010 12:10pm
Hehehe! You wouldnt like here in Stockholm...it is so forbidden to take pictures inside stores and shopping centers...That makes your picture even more interesting.
24 Nov 2010 12:25pm
Hey Bettina, this is splendid!!! Would never expect a scene like this could be such an appeal! Very very beautiful rhythm of patterns and amazing colours... perfect choice of focus and DOF! How refreshing!:-)
24 Nov 2010 12:29pm
Well seen and captured Bettina! I notice that there is only one foot on display for each pair. Is this for shrinkage control perhaps? ;-)
24 Nov 2010 12:58pm
interesting !!! lot of choice in this shop !!:):)
24 Nov 2010 1:01pm
OH! MY GODDDD!
24 Nov 2010 1:08pm
I'll show my age by saying 'I remember the days when the choice for sneakers was white over white or black over white. And you could get canvas or canvas. :)
24 Nov 2010 1:16pm
"I suppose you're all wondering why I have asked you to come here today. Well,I say it is time for all of us to put our foot down on this terrible runaway shoe business....it is driving us into the ground and, quite honestly, I have to tell you, it is wearing me thin! Now we either have to stamp out the runaway shoe business or we will be caught flat0footed with corny comments like the one I am reading now!" SO run, run for your lives !
24 Nov 2010 2:10pm
@Denny Jump Photo: LOL!
Nice shot !
It reminds me my stay in New York, after one day I have buy a pair of shoes of Nike !
24 Nov 2010 2:40pm
A fine, original shot. Good eye to see the possibility for this image.
24 Nov 2010 3:31pm
Funny picture! This one shows so well the society of consommation!
Have a nice day.
24 Nov 2010 3:47pm
WOW so many shoes and it goes so so deep into the shot, very cool shot
24 Nov 2010 3:56pm
muy buena composición , un beso pablo
24 Nov 2010 4:04pm
Superb shot! Wonderful composition and colours...
24 Nov 2010 4:50pm
jolies couleurs j'aime la pdc utilisée ! peace !
24 Nov 2010 5:03pm
this is sheer madness, though nicely disguised! i'd never find a pair of trainers in there - the quantity would suffocate me! but i love this image - great compo and structure, awesome colors!
24 Nov 2010 5:05pm
Everything in the US seems to have the need to be big! :)
Biiiig shot Bettina!
24 Nov 2010 5:14pm
At first sight, I wondered if it was not a store devoted to one-legged .. but no ..
I quite like the repetition of objects in an image
24 Nov 2010 5:29pm
@Christian Devoise: LOL. Yes, it's for monopeds only.
Like a strange field… Nice shot
24 Nov 2010 6:10pm
How many pairs did you buy? One of every color? Hah! You always see the big picture, don't you? And the rows of things? Shoes, cans, statues... I think you are trying to make order out of chaos, and create a linear world, when you know you can't have it... OOh, deep thougths today!
24 Nov 2010 7:11pm
@LauraS: Oh so deep thoughts. ;) But you're completely right! I believe that understanding patterns is the key to life. Without it you're lost in the jungle.
24 Nov 2010 7:15pm
Nice that's a nice stock. I need some new walking shoes...which I had this store near me.
A wonderful catch, Bettina. Perfect title !! :-)
24 Nov 2010 8:40pm
Have you ever lined up your thumbnails of similar "linear" shots to see what it looks like, "en masse" ?? Might be an interesting perspective on your eye to thinking skills. Hmm? Why do I have this free time on my hands to play with these thoughts? Day before Thanksgiving! I'm at work, but hardly anyone else is, so I'm free to let my mind wander... How fun is that?
Happy Thanksgiving, Bettina!
24 Nov 2010 8:53pm
@LauraS: Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Laura! I have actually thought of that. In fact I'll get right on it! :) It's that kind of day...
is this an oxymoron?
24 Nov 2010 9:41pm
Now here's a shop I could never just drive by - I have a weakness for shoes:)) It looks like it goes for ever.
25 Nov 2010 2:16am
Cool shot! I love the title!
25 Nov 2010 2:44am
Such a cool shot. Love all the shoes.
25 Nov 2010 2:59am
Wow, I'd turn into a zombie in a store like that! Great job of capturing the overwhelming choices! :)
25 Nov 2010 3:20am
That's a lot of exercise to be done in all those shoes!
25 Nov 2010 3:26am
So many shoes - so little time! Terrific image - love the angle that you shot it at - like we are sitting here with the shoes. Excellent colors!
25 Nov 2010 3:45am
Great color! What a great concept, too.
25 Nov 2010 4:05am
Wish all shops could be open to the public for photography like this!! Fantastic!
25 Nov 2010 4:11am
I need a new pair. Could you show me the right pair in the third row?
25 Nov 2010 4:15am
@Michael Rawluk: Sure. You got it.
wow! nice idea!! i'm always astonished by the colors of basket shoes...
25 Nov 2010 11:36am
un univers graphique, bien vu.
25 Nov 2010 4:16pm
Very nice and original picture ! Very well done !
25 Nov 2010 6:49pm
WOW! Here is shoe's world!
with lot's of chose! : )))
25 Nov 2010 10:11pm
Is this the one across the street from Ralphs on Sunset? Just wondering. I go there a lot to get my shoes, especially when I need something specific. Can't beat second pair 1/2 off :)
26 Nov 2010 2:23am
@Howard F.: It's the Broadway Shoes? I could very well be where the Ralph's is. It is on that side of the street.
On the go just like you! What a great shot of these ready to take off down the street.
26 Nov 2010 10:36pm
Belle accumulation, jolie composition.
27 Nov 2010 7:57am
Interesting shot :)
29 Nov 2010 2:02pm

29 Nov 2010 11:14pm
