Evan: “Oh yeah…just stack ’em up like cordwood.”
But, I’m going to have a blast anyway. Marty and I photographing boots for my book. Lots and lots of boots. I’ll be making stops at Texas Traditions, Dave Little’s Boot Company and some of the best collectors’ closets in Austin. Stay tuned.
As I’ve been bounty-huntin’ cowboy boots for my book… I’ve discovered that a handful of the boots I want to photograph are currently being “held hostage” in Houston’s Center for Contemporary Craft …part of an exhibit called COWBOY: Craft of the American West.
The show features handmade cowboy gear …including cowboy boots crafted by Ray Dorwart (Guthrie, OK), Stephanie Ferguson (Millsap, TX), Bob McClean (Sedona, AZ) and Gary & Clara McGlasson (Spokane, WA.)
Visit the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft before March 26th, 2006 ….or catch a glimpse of a few of the items included in this photo slideshow.
Otherwise you may have to wait until my book comes out next Spring!
