obligatory feet shots

At Anna’s wedding, there was a moment when Anna and Leah and I posed together for some professional photographs. The only one I’ve seen of those (maybe the only one there is?) is of our feet:

I also came home with this shot of my family’s feet at the wedding:

(I switched shoes at some point, from the yellow heels to the blue flats.)

I love these feet photos (and the ones up on the blog header)! I don’t really know why, though! Maybe because they are self-portraits I can take without too much trouble, and they often really do capture the place and event…

I’ve been working a pair of ugly socks. I’m using up all my scraps of sock yarn from projects past, switchingc colours whenever I feel like it. They’re turning out spectacularly, and I’m really excited to have ‘em done. I think I might actually get 4 or 5 socks out of the project and then I can mix and match.

This photo, on the other hand, is of my favourite sock-shoe combination.

I hadn’t thought it through before I read the paper this afternoon, but seeing the articles about Obama and victory right next to the articles about California and Proposition 8 (banning gay marriage)…I honestly feel more dismayed and unhappy about california passing this regressive ballot measure than I feel exited about president-elect Obama. It seems as though we can imagine that this country voted for “change,” but when faced with one very concrete thing about making things actually better for people without harming anyone else, they couldn’t do it.

I was out on the streets of Brooklyn on Tuesday night, celebrating in the throng of people dancing and waving flags and playing music and hollering and hugging and having a great time. I think that this is exciting, but I’m so wary of thinking that this is a period of overwhelming and unprecidented awesome.

Anyhow. Here are two pictures of my feet.
