Ten Feet, From Oldest to Youngest

This series of shots is another of those types of photos I want to take of my children to remember them as they were when young. Everyone protested when I was taking these last fall, except for my older son. He was eating ice cream at the time, so he was content to just sit there…not an easy task for him. My second oldest daughter never does any photo shoots for me quietly. She’s always sure to let me know just how ridiculous she thinks the whole thing is. I waste a lot of film on her, as it takes so many shots before she’ll close that mouth and pose. (Again, I’m not going digital – so this time I’m saying, “Bite your tongues”, as the ‘Hold your tongues’ last time didn’t work.) ;o) So, these are my children’s shoed feet, the ten feet that grow way too fast! Someone always needs a new pair of shoes when the cash is low that month.

No stats on these, like it matters. I’m not digging out all those photos to check the backs to see what I shot. I can tell you that all were shot with Fuji HQ ISO 100. Used to be my favorite film, but I’m starting to warm up to Kodak again. Having fun experimenting with some new films as well, and still need to shoot my first roll of slide film. As soon as everything greens up nicely, I’ll be taking the infrared out of the fridge and having another go at that.

Have a great weekend, all; and I’ll see you around the net.

Ahh..this is so lovely. I like the photo full of love since I believe that it makes the image 'really' warm and great.
BTW, I have a image somewhat similar to yours on my blog. Hope you like that. http://mountainbread.org/wordpress/archives/2005/10/07/difference/

Very nice Micki. It never dawned on me that a photo could have more impact when part of a series until seeing yours. -Dave

I love this series! Very cute.







BTW...*whispers*...digital is cheaper...ooops, I didn't say that *innocently looks at ceiling while whistling* ;)

I hope I don't offend, I'm just teasing a little of course. ;)

I believe the first shot shows about the person who has been thinking about something, the rest of them seem to be sitting idle ;-) Nice series Micki.

i love the first shot. He looks really relaxed and carefree. It's amazing how humans are able to send out and receive so much info from so small a body language.

Oh...I love these. What a great idea. I love the barefoot idea. I must do that! Shoes times five! Ouch! The way my one child goes through shoes...it makes me shutter to think about it:)

Hey - I laughed out loud when I saw this series! Those would be great to have printed out and put in frames in just that order.

Maybe this could be the beginning of a family project of sorts - feet this time, then hands, then eyes...

Anyway, very interesting shots.

Lots of expensive feet, a good idea to shoot these alternative memories of the children.

So you are one of the "dying breed" with a film camera then and a Photoblog ;)

I like ths shots of the childrens feet it's a great way to remember them by and I wish I had of thought of it for my daughter. What you need to do next is a gloves theme!

Got something for feet? :) Like the series, it tells a story. Shows the Importance of a good title for any image.

This has got to be the most amusing photo essay I've come across. Hehe, still gives me a bit of a chuckle. I like the first one especially.
