You may or may not be aware that our family believes in minimalist footwear. Which means we believe barefoot is best for our bodies and accordingly we wear the most minimal footwear we can all through the year.
Out of our own experiences in this area grew a desire to educate others, mostly to help them solve their back and knee problems that prevent them from enjoying physical activity. Along these lines Damien has given a presentation on this topic at the college where he is a computer programmer.
He has also written a blog series on the topic and in doing so has made a name for himself in the minimalist shoe/barefooting community. (Who knew such a thing existed!) A nice benefit of this "notoriety" is that companies send him shoes to review. Free shoes, I'm cool with that.
What does this have to do with me? Well... one of the companies he did a review for has selected one of my photos to put on their company website. They asked permission which I was happy to grant with a listing of my name and link back to ADVENTUREinPROGRESS (where the photo was originally found).
The funny thing was that taking that photo took me all of 2 minutes and was no work of art as far as I was concerned. Not the kind of photo I get a creative high from taking. How ironic that when I look at it now I think "hey, that's a good shot".
So, I'm just sharing that little success with you all because you just never know where these things go. We're building these blogs as a place to share our ideas, family life and vision and to showcase some of our creative work. And we're going to see where it goes.
A teensy success, though small, along the way is very encouraging.
