Foto Finish - Feet

It's October 1st.  Can you believe that?  It feels like passage of time speeds up throughout the year.  I can remember thinking that January lasted forever this year.  September didn't! 

Moving on to today's Foto Finish theme of feet.  Some weeks Barbara's themes are certainly challenging.  I had a great opportunity to get a great shot of feet last week, but I left my camera at home.  (Chalk that one up to the trials and tribulations of a mother trying to get out the door with a preteen,  goodies for the swim team's picnic lunch, and all the required swim gear).   However, I did find another shot from a previous swim team event that fits. 

This particular swim meet I was trying to catch the swimmers in the middle of their dives off the block.  I'm still working on that skill, this shot was just a little late in the sequence.  Even though it's not what I was going for, it does capture that tail end of the slide into the water off the blocks.  I like all the splashing going on. 

Check out Cat Patches for more feet shots.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with on this one. 


  1. Oh I love this, Kate! I swam competitively when I was a kid, and this image gave me that shot of adrenaline I used to get while I stood on the block. Great capture! Incidentally, swimming is a life-long sport. It's great that your daughter is involved in such a worthwhile and gratifying activity.

  2. Great shot - I like taking photos of my grandchildren jumping into our pool and catching images of the splashes. Love the blues in this photo.

  3. Great action shot Kate! I love the blue of the water as the back drop for the subject too.

  4. Good shot! I love the movement of the feet in the middle of the splashes!

  5. I think it's a great shot - it shows the reality of diving in!

  6. Terrific shot! Even if it isn't exactly what you were aiming for, it sure can hold its own.
