you capture – feet

First of all, you must must must go see Beth‘s new baby boy. He is just delicious! And don’t come back here until you’ve goo-goo’d and gah-gah’d all over her blog.


Now, let’s go on to the business at hand … this week’s You Capture!

When Beth asked me to host You Capture for the next two weeks, I gladly obliged. I love Beth, I love You Capture, and I love meeting new people – it’s a win win win!


But here’s the honest truth.

I hate feet.

Seriously, they really really gross me out.

With one exception. Baby feet.


Baby feet are awesome …


… but once the kid is old enough to start getting their feet dirty, then I’m kind of over it.

{Britney Spears barefoot in a gas station? Pretty much vomit-inducing for me.}

But … here I am. Opening my blog to an onslaught of feet.

167/365 :: it'll do

Lots and lots and lots of feet.

how did i do?

Because that’s how much I love Beth. Lots and lots and lots.

So bring on the feet!

But first, please read the guidelines and make sure you link to the actual blog post not just your main blog address.

    I hear you on the dirty feet. I had to scrub Luke’s in the tub tonight, then turn around and trim Tommy’s toenails (which is a wrestling match). I miss those little clean, compliant baby feet!

    considering the complications, you’re a special friend, keli! hope my “feet” aren’t too painful for you.

    thank you for sharing the you capture love this week.

    I’m not a huge fan of grown people feet either, which is why my photos are of my cat’s feet. : ) I was tempted to ask my friend to pose for me, she has the stubbiest little toes I’ve ever seen, but I don’t think she she wants her feet published on the internet. . hehe.

  4. There is just something about baby feet. Sweet photos! :)

    Those are perhaps the longest baby feet I’ve ever seen in that second picture! HA! These are great. There’s some baby feet at my place, so it’s okay for you to check ’em out! ;-)

    1. keli says:

      Oh, those are Emma’s! Her feet were hilariously long!

  6. Feet pretty much gross me out too. The only exception for me is my children’s feet – those i love. My 18m old loves have me kiss her feet. She will put her foot in the air saying, “kiss. Kiss. Kiss peet!” Yes, she says peet for feet. And I love to kiss them – because her feet (and the feet of my other two children) I love. :)

    Baby feet are the best.

    I don’t mind feet so much as long as people take care of them. My cousin on the other hand, sits in the car when she takes my Grama to the foot Dr. I don’t know if she thinks people are just walking around the waiting room barefoot or what…

    The shot of the ink on the feet cracked me up!!

    Adult feet creep me out as well. Baby feet I could just eat up. They’re so sweet! Thank you for hosting You Capture!

  15. Saj says:

    I love your captures of feet! The ones in the sand are so precious.

    Now, I should have included a disclaimer on my post. (Maybe I’ll go back to put one on.) I’m SUPER neurotic about being barefoot in certain places. My own home-okay. Outdoors-okay. The beach-definitely. Dressing rooms-ugh. Locker rooms-UGH. Public bathrooms-DOUBLE UGH! I want to vomit thinking of Britney Spears barefoot in a gas station. But otherwise I don’t mind them much.

    Love, love, love baby feet! Feet don’t bother me too much unless they are dirty and are walking (or being) in a clean place. Then, they better get cleaned up quickly!
    Thanks for hosting this one! My take was vacation feet.

    Thanks for hosting this week! Looking forward to checking out everyone’s feet!

  22. I am SO glad to read all these comments and find out that I am not the only one who hates feet. I don’t mind my own…. occasionally…. and baby feet are fine… but I really don’t like anyone else’s feet.

    I love those baby toes in the sand!

    Thanks for hosting YouCapture.

  24. Other than baby boy feet…boy feet creep me out. Pretty girly feet with fun polish don’t creep me out. :)

    Hehe, seems like many of us are doing baby feet for this weeks theme! No such thing as too many baby feet pictures though! Baby feet and toes are just too cute :)

    I absolutely love the one with the big kid feet with the pen marks scribbled on it. It’s like a mini tattoo with a pen :)

  32. I have feet phobia too, but only when the 2nd toe is longer than the first one – ha ha! My husband has passed this “unslightly” gene on to 1 of my kids…but the other 2 have toes that go in order. LOL. ;-)
    This is my first time submitting to you capture. Fun!

    I don’t like feet either =
    only baby and kid’s feet –
    isn’t that kinda funny how so many people are grossed out by feet?
    I could never give pedicures!!!!
    Thanks for hosting this week –
    I have sure enjoyed it

    Well, two of my pictures are of baby feet. ;) Hopefully they don’t gross you out! :D

    I’m not a fan of grown up feet… but I love my kid’s feet.

  38. I love toes and feet too, but they have to be the feet of a child under the age of um, like maybe 6 or something.

    Oh my goodness, I hate all feet but baby feet too! (And now preschooler feet since my son is three). Actually whenever I was really stressed out by my babies, I would look at their feet. Because I loved them. And their feet reminded me between the crying and lack of sleep.
