My fascination developed from researching kitch photos on Flickr. I became really inspired by that kind of vintage style photography. It’s also quite a common kind of style I find on Flickr.
It seems everyone wants to recreate the popular shot ideas. One of these ideas includes shooting your feet/shoes. Often the success of these shots depends on the backdrop and if you have an interesting pair of shoes.
Part of the appeal for me is to document myself in these different places. An example of this is the photo of my boots. I’m standing next to an old box with red text written on. The red in the text worked nicely with the red in my trousers.
