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-vaccinated–tested requirement. I’m glad that I caught the last unmasking.
