2 Things Challenge Foot/Step

The 2 Things Challenge for this week is Foot/Step. A while back I was photographing some of the street people who frequent and hang out around the 5 Points South Area of Birmingham. The Highlands United Methodist Church, situated immediately next to the fountain, hosts a Hospitality Hour six mornings a week for these people during which they provide some form of breakfast, mail service, clothing assistance, and laundry service. It was mid afternoon when I spotted this gentleman sleeping on the front steps of the church. I know the first part of the challenge is "Foot" but I seldom see any feet except my own or my wife's, unless they are clad in some form of shoe. So I settled for "shoe" as the representation of foot, bright yellow shoe that is, and the concrete step on which he sleeps will do for the other half of the challenge. I took a little liberty with the background of the photo and added a spin blur to represent what I think the gentleman was probably feeling in his head as he lay there.
