This week's Sepia Saturday theme is supposed to center around feet, shoes, football boots, cows, etc. I couldn't find anything that fit that theme just right and I just kept coming back to this one particular photograph and then I realized why. The theme was saying to me "pairs," pairs of things, leather things and since I really like this photo I just decided to go with it.
I don't have any information about the people or location of this picture, it's just one I picked up somewhere, but my guess is that it is probably from the 1940's. It looks like it is autumn from the lack of leaves on the trees or perhaps even Christmas and the young man has received these boxing gloves as a Christmas present. It's such a fun photo and if you click on it to enlarge you will see that he has the most devilish little grin. All I know is he looks like he is immensely enjoying himself and hopefully found a worthy sparring partner!
For more fun and games head over to Sepia Saturday!
