#28daysofwriting Day 15: Symmetry

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symmetry.”

scan image of a pair of feet showing pressure pointsIt has been an expensive day.  Buying hockey shoes and football boots for my son.  As part of that process, one of the shoe shops we went into scanned his feet to help decide which were the best sports shoes for him. His scan shows that his feet are quite well balanced; the pressure on his foot tracks pretty much identically for both feet and the absence of an imprint between the heel and the toes indicates a relatively high arch.

Interestingly, the shoes that the consultant chose for him to fulfil the requirements of his feet are the same as the ones I have for the #oxfamtrailwalk.  I suppose it shouldn’t be that surprising since he is my son, but clearly wide feet and high arches and the way we walk is genetic.

When I took this photo in La Isla Ometepe, Nicaragua in December it was the sense of symmetry that drew me to photograph it.  The volcano, Concepcion, is a magnet and is itself very symmetrical with its classic volcanic cone.  It is constantly changing as the cloud moves around it so you never see the same view of it.  It dominates the tiny island and I like that this photo draws us to it along the dusty road.

    Interesting way of measuring a foot. Is the result a good thing?

      It doesn’t measure the foot just analyses the profile and the way it treads.
