Is That a Foot Fetish I See In My Photo Library?

I recently noticed something odd with my pictures, it seems that i developed a little something for...feet!

I recently entered a rumble on Lomography about cross-overs and I ended up as one of the runners-up! I was really happy about it and proudly showd it to a friend. C’mon, it was my first ‘something’ after all. He was happy for me, congratulated me and everything, but he told me that “Yes, gret! But you took a picture of feet!”. At first I was “No, what are you saying? It’s about doubles, not feet!”, but a bit later that day, I decided to put some order in my previous un-tagged pictures and realized something weird. It’s strange how I love pigeons and skyscrapers, and cat, but also…. FEET!

I swear to god I don’t have a foot fetish or anything, but I just think it’s a good subject – visually speaking. It’s also a good way to capture a person. Like the old saying goes “Show me your shoes and I will tell you who you are.” (Okay, maybe I just made that up). Mine, a stranger’s, barefoot, sneakers, boots, in action or not, sandals, high heels, colors, black and white – you name it, I love it! Did I already mention that I don’t have a foot fetish?

What about you? It’s something that I see on a regular basis. Do you also take pictures of feet, or should I start to worry about my visual/mental sanity?

    Yes. You have a foot fetish.
    At least you are not obsessed with seagulls, every time I see one I have to snap a photo - even though they are all out of focus :D Love your feet photos and you are right, it perfectly captures someone's character :D
