If you were at Saturday's Ben Harper show down at the Bes Gardens, you fully understand the inspiration behind this post: there were galoshes galore. From plain black wellies that were all about function to wild colours and patterns that were made to stand out in a crowd (and there was certainly a crowd out that night), rainboots were all the rage, giving their wearers piece of mind on soggy ground. I spent some of my time looking down at footwear so I could ask the wearers of cute or unique boots if I could snap a pic on my phone. It was almost awkward when one girl thought I'd asked to photograph her boobs... but she was down either way so it worked out alright for me. Anyway, here are a few pairs (of boots, not boobs-- sorry) that I saw at the SaskTel Jazz Festival this weekend.
And although I could have spent the whole night photographing rainboots because there was a never-ending parade of them, I chose to instead spend some time with my friends from Spareparts (they were the presenting sponsor for the show and for the whole Groove Series) and with my brother whose birthday was being celebrated. So, that brings me to the end of my rainboot pictorial. A big thanks to everyone who was a great sport about letting some stranger (me) take pix of their feet! And just a reminder that the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival is still on until the 29th so get out there and see some shows-- the forecast seems to denote you won't be needing galoshes.
