My Punta Cana trip via feet

Ha!Ha! So I was talking to a friends today and it came up that I took 28 pictures of my feet while I was on vacation! I guess I thought taking pictures of where you are via your feet was normal, like a self portrait. Maybe not. Oh well I still enjoy it and thought I would share a post of my vacation thru the fun collection of feet pictures I took :)

#6: Take silhouette pictures

I have really been wanting to take some silhouette pictures and even put them on our list of things to try this summer. These shots all happened unexpectedly though. And while they are not fully silouetted, they are pretty close! These pictures were taken at sunrise not sunset, but obviously had similar results!
