Post a photo...of your FEET.

I didn't want to hijack the other thread, and I though this might be fun.

On vacation last month

Tah dah!

I miss those red shoes. They got wrecked last summer after one too many rainy days.

It's the only photo in my Flickr photostream to make it to Explore. Obviously, other people found the shoes pretty keen too.

Here are my feet. Notice the painful abrasions on them from when I wore cheap Payless sandals to the grocery store last Sunday. Damn cheap shoes- never again.

Wow- they look much shorter and fatter in this photo than they do in real life. You'd never guess they were a 9 1/2 Narrow, but they are.

Nobody's going to be wanking to these, right? Oh well, just don't tell me if you do.

Guatemalan self portrait



And this one should probably go in the TMI thread...


Runs with Scissors, those are some awesomely veiny feet!

Okay, blondebear, so why feet? Are you a sole reader?

Oh, why not?

Me standing on broken coral, yes, walking around the beach hurt as much as it seems, on some tiny little island I paddled to near Koh Mak in the Gulf of Thailand; next time I'll take some shoes.

Enough babbling, behold my 45s

I have no feet pics, but I do have a story about feet pics.

I went to my friend's graduation (she was getting her PhD).

She gave her boyfriend a dinky little camera and asked me to take pics. He gave it to me.

We were in the nosebleed section. Neither the lens nor the flash would reach the stage. Besides, her dad had a nice camera, nice zoom lens and a seat down front.

I thought it would be fun to take pictures of peoples feet. Her friend's feet at graduation. Her parent's feet at graduation. You get the idea.

She was royally pissed. More at her boyfriend than at me. And her dad's camera didn't work.

Flash forward to their wedding. Throw-away cameras on the tables. Of course I had to get a pic of each table's feet. This time she was amused. They sent me pics of their feet on the beach on their honeymoon.

Heh, no. Does it void the warranty if you don't have a screen covered in fingerprints 'n' schmutz? It's been awhile since I've actually read the agreement on anything from Apple (well, dangit, there are new ones every time I turn around!).

And isn't Doug the ol' fashioned one, not even treating us to a naughty flash of ankle!

It just works out that way. You can either be on constant wet wipe vigil or give up. I chose the latter.

I've been fighting a fungal infection on my nails for the last 9 months. I just took off my work shoes too. I'm not worried that I'll be starring in any foot fetishists' dreams any time soon.

I really like those shoes. I had a similar pair that I got from asianideas.com; I keep meaning to get a new pair but the ones I want are out of stock.

Artfully cropped to spare everyone the horror of my legs and put more emphasis on the Caribbean. I have great feet, and just got an awesome new red polish. I only polish my toenails, so I have fun with it.

I can do better than that - I can do you lots of feet!

Mine's one in the lilac and white flip-flops with the deep pink toenails, next to the guy in the light-coloured trousers and shoes.

Strangely enough, I have a recent pic of my feet.

Why do I feel like I'm fueling someone's fetish?

I took the picture to show a friend my tan was getting as dark as his natural tone.

Fine. Here they are, freezing on a rock in a creek under a waterfall behind our cabin in North Carolina.

And here they are, pedicured and sandaled, propped on my desk.

Frankly, I don't care if anyone's whackin' off to the sight of my feet.

Heh. Honestly, having a "foot fetish' thread didn't even cross my mind. Not that there would be anything wrong with that!

No, I just thought this could be a alternate/parallel thread for those disinclined to display their mugs to the general public. I'm a solo traveler, and I take a lot of photos with my feet in the foreground (along with the always popular "waving shadow of myself" shot). Like I said in the OP, I thought it might be fun.

Besides, I didn't think I'd get a lot of replies if I started a thread called "Post a pic...of your THUMB"

Two Dopers' feet for the price of one: whiterabbit's and my feet just after dunking them in the waters of Redfish Lake up in the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho on a Monday, when the ice on the lake had just melted over the weekend -- in other words, 32.5F water:

four very cold feet
