Thematic Photographic 81 - Feet

New York, NY, November 2009

Zach and I had walked 24 blocks up 5th Avenue to see this place, Apple's flagship retail store. Since he inherited my admiration of all things related to this fruit-themed tech company, it seemed natural for us to make the trek and drink in the experience of this place.

Of course, 24 blocks is a tough sled for anyone. Worse when you consider the need to walk another 24 blocks back to where we started. So both of us were pretty tuckered out by the time we got there. But not too tuckered out to enjoy the sight of hordes of fans descending the glass staircase under the ginormous glass cube. Say what you want about Apple, but this is a company that understands how to make memorable experiences whether you're using its products or visiting one of its stores.

Your turn: Thematic Photographic's theme this week is "feet". No, I'm not sure why this is so. I guess I was feeling cheeky. Participation is simple: Post a similarly themed pic on your blog, then pop back here and paste the link into a comment. Repeat as often as you wish. For more info on how TP works, click here.

Walking 24 blocks? That's one mean feat.
A one legged man in an arse kicking contest? That's one mean foot.

It took a long time to go 12 steps. They were just inching along.

Terrific shot, Carmi. I love that you look up from beneath the stairs. Too many people don't and look at what they miss.

Reminds me of Fred Penner's song, "Happy Feet"!

Geez, what's the big deal about 24 blocks? That's life in Manhattan! You don't even think about transportation alternatives if it's under 30 blocks (unless you're carrying a ton of stuff)!

That's a really great photo. I'm not at all sure that I have a "feet" photo anywhere in my collection so I may have to pass this week - or take some, just as soon as the Christmas rush is over (being almost a day ahead of you here in New Zealand) said...

GREAT theme!!

How Beautiful the feet...

we took your Written, Inc advise to heart. thank you, we're gonna begin lookig the other way for unexpected shots. great idea! {enjoyed your "blue brick" post; aren't kids wonderful?}

anyhoo, Here's our contribution to your FEET prompt, okay, okay quite ordinary, so we added some background text (still ordinary, but takes up more real-estate)

I'm late to the party - I have my "feet" up, and am looking forward to finding out what the new theme is this evening!

Is there any booze left?

Here's a picture of the Grand Canyon (not to mention, my left foot), it's from this post.
