Ever since I started traveling I have had a ‘tradition’ picture to take photos of my feet…. in different places, scenes, doing different things, in front of views or hanging over cliffs, dirty after festivals, tired in the airport… etc. Scenes that really got the gist of what I was doing and the feel of wherever I was.
I have been doing this just over three years now, and have just decided to group these by year. I am a bit late and just posted the 2013-2014 version here, and now here is the 2015 edition – where I really started getting artsy and serious about this strange tradition. 😛
2015 was a massive year for me and my traveling. I started my blog, moved to London and lived there for half a year, got my dream job in Croatia for the summer, spent a bit of time back and home in California, traveled around Southeast Asia for two months with one of my best friends, and rung in the New Year traveling solo in Malaysia. It was quite the year of growth and adventure, as the photos below will definitely confirm.
I’m not entirely sure why I started doing this…. my feet aren’t all that attractive and basically always have small chips of old nail polish somewhere and are slightly dirty because I don’t like to wear shoes… but it has evolved into a tradition nonetheless that brings back tons of memories and also appreciation for shoes that have been there for me through it all 😉 It now means quite a lot to me to get a good, meaningful, or encompassing ‘foot’ picture, and I have been increasing my scope and skill since I began as a wee little backpacker in continental Europe for the very first time with an iPhone 5.
So here is part 2 of my annual “Adventures & Footwear” series on Adventures & Sunsets – enjoy 🙂
