Lens-Artists PC: Feet with shoes

Leya surprised me with her theme of feet and shoes and then my archives surprised me with the quantity of available images. There are so many that this is merely Post 1. I’d never guess how many feet shots I own. The last photo I took especially for this challenge.

Today the galleries are two: one with my feet wearing my shoes, and the other with other people wearing theirs and shoes that nobody is wearing. In the next post, probably on Saturday, all feet will be bare and even happier.

Let’s start with other people and with some shoes all by themselves.

And here is a collection of my footwear as seen from above. I notice that I like to look down when I’m happy. Only one photo was not taken by me but by amore.

I think this post is a goodbye of sorts to all my flat shoes, boots and everything that presses on my heels too much. Not by chance, all today’s photos were taken between 2013 and 2015, only one is from 2017. After that I started to wear reinforced open sandals in the summer and sneakers in other seasons. It’s the only thing my calcinated feet can wear.

These are in the order as taken, from brand new bestia in 2013 to a square in front of a Roman basilica in 2017.

You can see my current standard summer shoes in the last photo taken especially for Leya and this challenge on Saturday before I went to a concert, my first after one year. The band was Matter, local heroes from Kamnik, a town near the capital of Slovenia, where the concert was held. It was so so strange. In their lyrics they mention “palm trees on shirts” and “hands up for citruses“, and this photo provides.

Two days later, as I was leaving Slovenia, I heard on the radio that it was again compulsory to wear masks at concerts, despite meeting the recovered-vaccinatedtested requirement. I’m glad that I caught the last unmasking.

  1. Well, Manja…despite the many fancy and comfy shoes…your mother’s installation takes the price! And little bestia of course! So you have had to leave some of your beauties behind, just like me? I loved shoes. I had many smashing pairs but not many really high heels though. All of them (almost) I had yo give away because of my Hallux Valgus. Emma is not the same size as me, so I had noone to give them to. Sorry those boots were not comfy? They looked good! And all those nice sandals…you cannot have them either?

    1. Ahh, sorry to hear that, Leya. Maybe this is why you chose this theme, to say goodbye to all the shoes you ever wore. All these shoes of mine were comfy, more or less, I don’t like to suffer. But now I need a 3cm heel and nothing should constrict the back of my heel. It’s a kind of plantar fasciitis. I’m glad you like mom’s installation. 😀

      1. From Wiki: “Shoe throwing may be a form of bullying, where a bully steals a pair of shoes and tosses them where they are unlikely to be retrieved. Shoe tossing has also been explained as a practical joke played on drunks, who wake up to find their shoes missing.

        Shoes on a telephone wire are popularly said to be linked to organised crime, signifying the location of gang turf or commemorating the death of a gang member. The shoes are also rumored to mark a spot for drug deals, although a 2015 study of shoe-tossing data in Chicago rejected this explanation.”
