Lens-Artists PC: Feet without shoes

Rarely but it happens that I have two posts for one challenge. On Tuesday feet were shoed, today they are shoeless.

I remember when Sandy had her hands and feet challenge and a question formed in my mind: In a temple where you are to walk barefoot, is it feasible to do it in shoes if you have a medical condition due to which you cannot walk barefoot (for long)? I suppose it’s not recommended.

I busted my feet a few years ago on a solo photo walk in Ljubljana, wearing flat sandals, walking too fast for too long in the heat, and the next day I was not able to stand, on either foot. It’s something similar to plantar fasciitis. With time and two injections and some therapy sessions and silicon pads it got better but I’m still hurting when I start to walk and if I walk for too long.

Walking barefoot hurts the most, so here are some memories of happy carefree barefoot fun, mine and other people’s, from previous years. And bestia’s. And Barbie’s.

    1. Right, Dan. In the whole Yugoslavia, along the long Croatian coast, I think there is one sandy beach. All others are pebbles or stones. Over here I have 12 km of dark sand. It gets really hot too and you can burn your feet on it.

  1. Sandals are treacherous. I fallen a couple times walking in flip flops on perfectly flat, clear and dry pavements. And wearing them for long walks? Aii-yah. Nowadays I wear sturdy and ugly hiking shoes all the time. Even at the beach.
    He He. I laughed at your green shoes picture — that’s a photo exercise in perspective.

  2. Those are pretty neat images of your feet, family feet, and pet paws! So many memories here for you to enjoy. I love photography for this reason!

    I am sorry about your feet. The older I get the less comfortable I am walking on the house’s tile floors barefoot. I wear slippers now instead.

    Hey, how cool to see my name in Winne-the-the Pooh’s book!! I’m going to show He-man he might get more of a kick out of it than even me. 😍

    Oh! Refreshing the page after viewing your image gallery worked!! I had no issues typing this. Woot!!!

    1. Oh, Deborah, excellent to hear this last, and that you got rewarded for careful viewing. 😉 Indeed, almost your name, just one latter is different. In Slovenian rabbit is “zajec”. I hope he liked it. And yes, for me photography has always meant memories too.

  3. Sorry about your feet, barefoot troubles, manja. I have difficulties as well, but from Hallux Valgus. Walking barefoot is more difficult nowadays. Love your photos, love the shared towel…love.
