The Cobbler’s Shop

Since I’m off to a Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners meeting in Charlottesville this morning, I thought I’d share my post from Monochromia.



My beloved boots needed repairing, and this time the job needed to be done right.  Fortunately, a third generation cobbler opened a little shop not far from my home.  I’ll share a photo of the shoes and boots on the shelves another time.  This time, it’s all about the shadows.

  1. Oh my goodness, Laurie. This one’s gorgeous. I especially like the paint dripping and the shaped seat. And the shadows, but that goes without saying. Hope your meeting and trip to Charlottesville went well.

    • Aren’t those shadows wonderful? And it was drive … the mild ice storm did not prohibit driving but it sure would have made riding the bike a cold experience for sure!

      • Brrrr… yes!
        For testing purposes, I am battling the Helper monkeys at WP, I need a little response to this reply, even a smiley will do. I want to see if it generates a new notice or pins to this line of conversation. Thank you!

      • It came up as a separate notice. They must have fixed it since I complained about it two days ago. Now they are telling me it is a non issue. :mrgreen:

        Oh well, on to the next windmill! ( (Don Quixote) The battle? Hate all the new changes and no choice for the PC user to interface)

  2. God bless a good cobbler and his shop. There is so much going on in this photo, so much to love. Shape and shadow and the texture of paint drips and wood grain. I can’t wait to see those boots, Laurie.

    You, my friend, are a wonder.

    • Sorry, Laurie, just erase this new thread. Your disappearing comment came back into my reader and then I made the reply above… Your comment combusted again, and the reply has been posted as an entirely new comment. ARGH. 😦

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
