You never know what you’ll find when you buy something that’s vintage. When photographer Alex Galmeanu bought a rare 50-year-old camera off eBay, he never expected to find an exposed (but undeveloped) roll of film inside. “Of course I had it developed right away,” he wrote, “and, as a surprise again, I was able to recover 10 quite usable images, especially when considering their age.
These tiny little feet are so cute! In the series Stone Footprints, Scottish photographer Iain Blake places these cheerful stones in fun footprint patterns and paths across his compositions. By adding just five tiny stone "toes" to a larger stone, the inanimate objects become alive with emotion and personality. The playful collection evokes a sense of family and community, sparking a desire to know more about those feet that Blake photographs–about where they have been and where they are going.
Whether the footprints create a moving pathway or form a motionless circle, Blake is able to convey a unique narrative with each strong composition. The next time I'm walking along the beach, I hope I come across a collection of these adorable little feet!
