Where I Stand

I’m trying to get back into photography this year, and have joined a group called Capture Your 365.  It’s 365 days of photo inspiration, with random assignments every day.  I don’t think I will do it every day, but I’m hoping that having the daily inspiration will help get me going more often.  January 9’s photo assignment was called Where I Stand:

Look down at your feet right now. They tell a story. The shoes you have on, the socks you’ve chosen, or the bare feet you see. They show who you are at this very moment.

Step into good light. Look down and photograph what you see. Add extra details if you want, include elements of your environment, or keep it clean and simple.

While standing in the shower this morning, I realized that this is a view I see every morning, and it’s one of my favorite things to do.  I love standing in the shower under a deluge of hot water.  I often stand there for a long time just relishing the relaxing feeling–it’s the closest I ever come to meditating I think.  If I weren’t usually in a hurry to get somewhere, or worrying about how much water I am wasting, I could stand there for at least 20 minutes, gently rocking back and forth under the warm spray.  This morning I broke my reverie to jump out of the shower and grab my camera.  Where-I-Stand

  1. You could have a lot of fun just shooting foot photos. I remember taking one of your foot holding a wildflower between its toes way back in 1972 on that grassy hill we called “Baldy”!

    • Yes, I’ve thought of several more Where I Stand photos I want to take. It’s an interesting way to depict how we see the world every time we look down!
