Ready for work

The Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Boot
Lens Artists Photo Challenge #190: Close and Closer

I was going to post a range of boots as I do have quite a number. But when I went out to grab a photo of my gumboots, I just thought of the Lens_Artists challenge as well, so things just went from there.

It’s a pity John Clarke aka Fred Dagg is no longer with us. He was a fabulous comedian.

  1. Well Brian, you definitely gave me a smile this morning. I was unfamiliar with the term “gumboots” but I did get myself a pair of similar boots this year and it takes me back to childhood to slosh around in the puddles (altho we don’t get much rain here!). Loved the song and video. And your last image is my favorite of this set.

      1. Another difference. Galoshes are more overshoe rather than a boot here. I had to do a bit of reading of why Gumboots and Wellies and found Americans also call them Rain Boots. I could go on but you’ll fall asleep πŸ˜‚

  2. I enjoyed the song – I wonder how many other countries call them Gum Boots? Over here those boots are known as Wellington boots, Wellies or Wellingtons.
    I’m glad you joined in, thanks, Brian πŸ™‚
