Woman with the Dirty Feet by 

Woman with the Dirty Feet, Acid Drinkers.

One of my first Self Portraits, just getting home after being fitted for backbrace and cane.

When i first starting posting these on Flickr (still in Beta mode at the time), people thought i was some strange new breed of fetish model.

That, however, came later. :) Like, once i could walk.

    Hahaha they look like MY feet – I’m always barefeet LOL
    Beautiful shot – dirty feet included!

  • Me too, Kimmy :). This was in Hawai’i, in my crappy little cinderblock apartment that looked like a mental ward. The floors were always disgusting because of the blowback from the street; i was right in the Uni district, it was filthy…

    Yeah – I once lived on a major throughfare for a few years – the dirt that came in was terrible…
    You know you create impact by forcing the first attention to go to something so apparently ‘simple’ as dirty feet – then comes the realisation of what this is actually an image of, and the REAL context of the o so horribly new brace and cane…
    You had a great eye for composition and wonderful postprocessing right from the start it seems!
    Hope things are going better for you now hon!
