Theme Day: Feet

Over the past week I’ve been snapping pictures of feet in all different settings and I must say that none of them really appealed to me. Last Friday I took a late afternoon walk around the Desert Botanical Garden and spotted lines of people waiting to purchase a drink they could take with them to the Friday night jazz concert and I suddenly remembered that I still didn’t have a picture for June 1st that I liked.

I pointed my camera at the feet of those in line and totally ignored the strange looks I was getting. The picture I chose to display was a total mistake. I accidentally snapped the shutter while I was moving and this was the result. As it turned out, this was my favorite of all the shots.

You have produced a neat effect, and protected the privacy of the feet.

Ignoring strange looks is something we as photographers will have to get used to. Nice photo for the theme day.
