How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good....Isaiah 52:7

Yesterday my husband and I attended the county fair in the town we live.. We enjoyed going into the exhibit rooms where they show photography...Often times there are so many people observing the pictures that they become the picture... In this case I thought that the coast was clear until after I saw the results...I didn't notice at the time when I shot this image, the feet on the other side of the partition..and it made me smile...I showed the preview in my camera to the gentleman looking at the pictures on the wallboard and he got a big charge out of it..

Oh the ever length of miles
We travel round' the block,
To save pictures for our files.
How oft' do we thank the feet?
For some may ne'er walk...
But e'en through defeat,
They bless us with their smiles.
Poetry by me, AJP

I mentioned to my husband yesterday, I feel blessed that we were able to walk around the fairgrounds as we saw so many people much younger than we are who were lame, in wheelchairs and scooters... What touched my heart strings yesterday was to see a little boy in a wheelchair who gave one of the workers at a stand a smile and hug for giving him a free gift..... I wish I could have shot that picture...

    This is funny, Andrea! I don't know why, but disembodied feet seem to always be amusing. I love the shot!

    This is a great fun shot : ). When we go to fairs I like to see the photographs and the paintings. I once entered some of my paintings in our local fair and I got ribbons on all of them, that was thrilling : )
