Q: Good tripods??

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

These were my very first pair of shoes.

They were the shoes that I took some of my first breaths in, and my first laughs in between those innocent smiles.

I took on some of my first adventures in these, learning how to live in this crazy world of ours. I took in these shoes my first steps that have then taken me to where I am today. These shoes are more than a memento to me, they're a symbol of the start of my life, and a beginning of steps that have led me to the course of the rest of my life.
