I have been known to own a pair of shoes… Or twenty. And I’m woman enough to admit that not all of those shoes fit the level of function that would allow me to keep a decent pace while walking with Chris.
You know what’s a good line of defense when you’re facing criticism for an inappropriate choice of footwear? “But I’m a photographer…” Taking pictures of things like cats, bicycles and our own feet is just what we do — it’s like a nervous tic for some of us! CAT! CLICK. WINDOW SILL! CLICK! AWESOME SHOES! CLICK CLICK CLICK!
I squee’d all over the internet when I finally bought my perfect rain boot, but these? These are my summer jam. They’re a thrift store find that Jessica gave me last April when we visited SF. They definitely aren’t a shoe that’s made for walking, but for your typical Portland day it’s the perfect fit. I don’t think I took them off until well after summer was over — I even remember walking down the street for some coffee one day, mid-afternoon rain and all. That’s love.
