Looking at Things From My Own Perspective

After a previous post involving pedicures and shoes, I discovered some of you would not ever consider posting photos of your feet. However, when I was young if I complained about any thing to do with my feet, my Mom let me know I should be thankful to HAVE feet and I remember her saying, "They get you where you need to go!"  So as I have gotten older I have just adopted that attitude.

In the late 80s I started taking pictures of my feet.  Not just for the sake of documenting my feet, but as a documentation of how things looked from my own perspective - when the view was amazing. 

This is my very first 'toe picture'.  It was taken on our second Caribbean vacation and I was TRULY in paradise. I had never seen a picture like this before I took this first one, but I have seen some recently.  I wanted a picture of the view from my chair through my own eyes so I snapped this shot.  Apologies for the graininess - this was probably shot with a 110 camera (if you are too young to know what that is, just disregard).

It became sort of a tradition for me after that.  Some of my pics are not digital, so I'll share mostly recent pictures.

Sometimes I even let other very special someone share my shot.

My patio - 2012
As I've said before, I love my backyard!  Hanging out there feels like a mini-vacation to me.

Probably my favorite place of all

Looking forward to many more of these pictures in my future.  You can check out a few here.

What a cute post, Laura! And, yes, I remember the 110!!! I had one! I think it's still around here in a drawer somewhere.

What a great attitude your mom had. My mom kept a poem in her cookbook about envying a girl until she saw she had no feet. One of the best things about Blogland is seeing so many other's perspectives. ~ Maureen

Not to be flirty or anything like that, but you not only have nice looking feet, but nice looking legs, too. What a great idea to have your feet included in the pics you love. Wish I had thought of that years ago.

Thanks all! And Gail, I'll just take the compliment and say, "thanks" because that is the proper way to take a compliment and we won't mention anything about the increase in the size of my calves since '88!
