Corner View - Feet

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane and currently curated by Francesca, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments at www.fuoriborgo.com, and be sure to visit other participants, too.
 
 
I usually take new photos each week for the topic.  This week, however, I want to use old photographs. 
 
In 2010, I took a tour of the "Highlands and Islands" of Scotland.  None of my travel buddies were able to and/or interested in taking the tour with me.  As I really wanted to go, I went alone.    When you're alone, how do you photo yourself? Me? I take pictures of my feet...
 
On the way to Glasgow, I had an 8 hour layover in Amsterdam.  So, I hopped on the train at Schiphol and headed to the City Centre for a solo walking tour.  Proof that I was there...
 Glasgow - and more practical walking shoes...
 

 
Oban... and no shoes...
 
 
 
Kilchoan...
 
 
 Happy corner-viewing!

    1. It was very liberating - esp when I was in Holland and no one knew where I was or could reach me. (No cell service.)

  2. I love this idea! I must remember it next time I'm going solo. I wish I could have gone with you on that tour!
    Cute flats--my favorite is the pinkish red pair. Love the painted toe nails---it's getting that time for me to schedule a pedicure and the toe nails glammed up for sandal wearing season here in Ohio.

  4. Oh, this is fun. I used to be a dancer, so I always focused a lot on my feet. So cute that you traveled alone and took pics of your traveling companion... your feet! :)

  5. That I like. :) At each place a foot.

    I've never gone away alone. But at some point my daughter is out of the house and I'll try it. I'm curious to see how it is going to me.
