In 2013, my wife and I traveled to Europe. We knew our trip would require a great deal of walking. We decided we both needed to purchase good walking shoes, two pair each. We went to a shop that advertised good shoes. The shop owners said to “be sure to take pictures in Europe to bring back to the shop to post on their bulletin board.” Wanting to be creative and have fun, we decided to take pictures of our feet in our new shoes wherever we went.
We snapped our favorite picture in Prague. We were outside the Castle. We gathered ourselves around a manhole cover near the castle entrance which was being guarded by a very military-looking soldier. He was very staid, looking straight ahead without any facial expression. When we snapped the photo, he glanced out of the corner of his eyes… he may even rolled them a bit. It was a great moment. I would liked to have captured his expression on film, but that moment was fleeting. Here we are:
We returned with 28 pictures of our feet, but never did take any of them to the Shoe Shop.
