Photo by Lulu: Feet
I'm pretty sure every photographer, young or old, has at some point taken a picture of their feet. June has. I have many a time. And here's Lulu's version. (Another from her Garden of Delights series. She's standing on my newly laid pavers.) I suppose it's inevitable. Point the camera down and there your feet are. Click. I seem to remember a scene from Lost in Translation when the young female lead disparages her own youthful forays into photography, citing pictures of her feet as an example of lameness, but I beg to differ. Feet are cool and weird. We forget this because they're always around, but good photos make us notice what we otherwise ignore. Look at those feet. Luminous. Awesome.
