Artist's Description

Number 134 in my 365 project 1-100 and 101-200
looking for the gifts in the present, each day for a year

My thongs (flip flops to those from the land of my birth….)
They caught my attention at night on the raw concrete floor with the chair shadows. A soft kind of feeling.

I went on a holiday in summer,
to the sea.
First time in ages
And on the way, in Busselton
I picked up a peachy pair of thongs
for an embarrassing $4.00 in Target
(do other people feel guilty at purchasing cheap toxic plastic crap??)
And…I bought 4 pairs of shorts at the opp shop there for $1.00 a pair. they were having a sale. It was an experiment to see if i would wear them.

I have not worn thongs since I was maybe 12.
Shorts haven’t been part of my wardrobe for maybe15 years.
So its novel to feel the cruisy beachy thing that goes with them. Here, in my home, so far from the sea….a gift for sure.

And you know what, my littlest cat Scooter is terrified of the flippy sound they make…
Fujifilm finepix s1500, Auto a bit blurry…it was dark. I liked the softness.
