corner view: feet

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane and curated by Francesca, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. This week’s theme is “feet.”

I was a fan of REM long before most of the rest of the world. Their manager was the son of a prominent family in my adopted town and attended the Episcopal church that my family also attended. They recorded their early music at Mitch Easter’s studio, just two towns over. College radio picked up on REM and made them underground heroes, word spread and they catapulted into everyone’s hearts.
I have a theme that has run through my photo journeys for a while now, and the song “Stand” plays in my head each time I point my camera to the ground and capture “the place that I live.”






Then also in keeping with the "feet" theme for this "corner view", there are the hints of little critter feet that are like finding treasures in the snow,


the little critter feet that so wanted to get in on the action when I was trying to get this shot,


and who can resist the pink sparkly feet of the tiny girl that twirled endlessly at our gig on Friday night!


So, stand in the place that you live!.......

This has been my first winter with a pet cat and I've been taking so many photos of his cute footprints in the snow!

I like the picture of the cat and mirror. :) Oh REM with long hair, which is quite a while ago. I remember only to short hair.

There are songs that used to play in my head all the time ages ago, and that I'm now rediscovering thanks to my teen boys (though my mind used to play them with a different, lower, volume setting!).

I enjoyed all those photos, but especially those glittery girl shoes! Thanks for the musical accompaniement, too! I didn't know that song before.
