I bought these spangled rhinestone cowboy boots awhile back. The touch of glam against distressed leather had an instant appeal factor. So much so, that I decided to photograph my funky boots as part of a still life. Lacking an appropriate weathered backdrop, I searched through my backlog of photographs. This sumptuously distressed beauty of a background was the perfect accompaniment. It was easily dropped into the image using Photoshop. And there you have it – the microstock photo “I Want to Be a Cowgirl” was born!
