feet

Last week I was in town, near the University campus, sitting enjoying a coffee and idly watching all the new students walking around. I became really interested in the range of shoes and boots. 

I set my camera on the table, pointing at the pavement, and clicked away as people walked by.  I took 25 in about 10 minutes.  The general plan for displaying them evolved in my head on my bus journey home.  I’m pleased with it as a snapshot of life in UK in 2011

I’m linking this up to Friday Photo Art over at Pixel Dust Photo Art.  head over and check out what others are doing – I’m loving the creativity and variety there.

What FUN! I love the way you have arranged all the photos in a collage. I like the rounded corners of the oblongs and the layout of the pictures. I also love the variety of shoes/boots. My especial favourites are the three pairs of feet in step together - friends! - the high-heeled lace-ups - business-like, and the one red gym shoe in the bottom left corner.
Just an inspired idea - I love it!

Awesome! I was so intrigued by the thumbnail that I just had to check this out. I'm glad I did. What a unique photo collage. Very modern and visually interesting and fun too.

This is simply brilliant Helena. I love the tip about putting the camera on the table, I would have been too self conscious to hold onto it looking at all those legs, Your collage is fabulous.
