I started working in a comfort shoe store earlier this year, and have since found myself checking out people's shoes constantly. I guess I talk about them all day and like learning more and differentiating the good ones from the downright horrible ones. I am drawn to quality comfort shoes with rich colors, and unique design/embellishments. Of course there are some absolutely gorgeous, horribly painful shoes out there too.

In between selling my art at a busy street fair this summer, I held my camera at waist level and took photos from under my display table of the people passing by. I enjoyed catching a bit of the bustle from a unique and anonymous perspective. The random click of the camera as people naturally and unsuspectingly passed by created some great compositions. Other times, I would very intentionally see some cool shoes about to pass and try my best to capture them in a photo.

Below you will find some of the images I took. A broad spectrum of shoes, like the people that are wearing them. If you are interested in a particular image or a group of images, I can make prints of these. They will be on a block of wood and varnished with resin. Approximately 5" x 7" unless otherwise requested, for $25.

Thanks for looking!
