The Steps I Take

49

Well, I have to admit, I am obsessed with legs! Especially my own feet! I guess a lot of Lomographers out there who like to shoot feet as well. Are you wondering what makes it so special to me, untill I can't get enough of them? Read on!

First of all, I guess that it’s the only way for me to capture myself on my Lomographs without having any help from others (or with the help of cable release/timer/whatever).

As well, I like to walk around, travel and visit places I’ve never been before. And capturing the place and moments without having myself in it seems like err, lacking of something. Therefore, I always enjoy letting any part of my body (oopps), be in the picture as well. So the most convenient way would be my little feet, sometimes with the presence of my own shadow, my hand, or maybe my self refection from any mirrors, steel, doors, windows, or any other reflecting object that could capture my presence.

Besides that, I guess I have this little fetish with feet. I like all sort of photographs with feet! Especially, when it’s a close-up on feet alone. It gives me such a strong feeling and a wide space to work with my imagination. For example, “what does this girl look like?” I wonder. Why would she be barefoot and walk on the road? Is she smiling now, or frowning? Is she an old pretty lady or a young cute girl? Well, I wasn’t sure why, but FEET really do make my imagination go wild…

The love of ‘feet’ actually has been going on for a long time and feet have became the favorite item on my blog header that you can see there all the time. It actually all started with my old blog title, “The Steps I Take”, few years back. Then the love of my own steps grew along with the my love of Lomography.

So, yea, ‘feet’ are my favorite object to shoot. And what about you? :)
