For the love of shoes, friends and birthdays

I’m not sure what it says about a fun day out when I come home with almost more photos of my feet than the day’s activities. They were clad in pretty shoes, but really, it wasn’t the main point of the day…

This was an accidental photo, but I rather like it.

Peering over the edge.

In hindsight, this was an unwise camera angle.

Check out those Nora Batty ankles. 
I love M&S opaques, but somehow I don’t have quite enough leg for them!

On reflection, the impetus was probably my love of reflections generally, combined with some rather pretty shoes, a lovely location (in central Birmingham – what a surprise!) and my general love of prancing. Oh, and the fact that it was a birthday day-out and the birthday girl has a tendency to keep people waiting. Not that we minded, it gave us an opportunity to prance, photograph and pose…

Ok, so I did some posing…
That’s the Ikon Gallery – well worth a visit.

The birthday girl did eventually emerge from the gallery, and we all had to pose.

All those photos with people in them? They were taken by the lovely Vicar Wendy (occupier of the country’s most luxurious curate residence). Like I said, I just took photos of shoes and water… 
[Oh, and in case you’re wondering – the shoes? A sale bargain discovered in Solihull’s Topshop last summer, so unlikely to be found anywhere these days.]
