Yes. That's me in the buddy icon.

I am not a foot fetishist.

I'm only mildly shoe crazy. (ahem)

The shoe photos are part of an ongoing project (saga?) wherein I chose a topic (shoes) and have been photographing that same topic/subject for several years. (off and on since undergrad). It began as a term project wherein we had to create a visual autobiography with all the photos containing a common thread to unify them to ourselves. (yeah, flipping esoteric art school projects) I could have just as easily chosen bicycles, vegetables, books, rocks or any number of other subjects, but opted for something with a human component to give the photos a sense of life and sense of me - basically, it was the easiest idea I could come up with to fit the assignment without having to devote the entire semester to chasing some lofty self absorbed affected theme no one would understand. Hey. I had a heavy class load that term, I needed to keep things as simple as possible.

Right. So. It became part of my daily life, like brushing teeth, yadda yadda yadda Flickr came into being and voila! a place to deposit my shoe shots and log my pedography.

    "camera1 has created some big shoes to fill. her photos have sole. she gets more out her feet than all the marathoners in Ethiopia. She is down to earth, usually at low angles. Her wit is quick and dry, as satisfying as talcum powder on athlete's foot. her style varies from eclectic, to elegant, to downright casual..truely a woman for all seasons and all shoe sales. sometimes her feet carry her to dangerous alleys, but luckily camera1 has developed the new martial art of toe-fu, so she is well protected. the tao of camera1 is accessible by all, for she extends metaphysics to metatarsals, a veritable foot-rub for your brain."

    "Camera1's ability to capture shoes in great places doing great things is only exceeded by her ability to photograph furry creature doing the same.

    Camera1 has a great eye and is not afraid to be called "Freak" by anyone."
