My new favorite photo of myself

In doing some housecleaning last night, I found a photo that I had forgotten about and it instantly became my new favorite photo of myself. I guess it took a decade or so away from it to bring me back around.

I’m not sure what does it for me — the car, the vinyl snow boots (complete with duct tape) despite it clearly being Spring, the power cord running under the hood, the poise, or the fact that I still own and wear that shirt. The whole thing just clicks.

    It’s definitely the boots. Do you still have those?

    Its like it’s a 40 year old b/w photo that was water colored. But Mike’s right, it’s the boots.

    I don’t still have the boots. IIRC, they were snow boots we had kicking around our mudroom and sometimes I would put them on just to run outside since they were Velcro (!) and didn’t require any tying. I probably ran outside to have the picture taken since that was the day I bought that car and I wanted to document it.
