My name is Dan, I am 64 years young, and started walking barefoot just a year ago.
In my younger years as a teenager I always had shoes on, and was ashamed to show my bare feet, the reason or logic to that is still a big question I ask myself. It was only later on as a young adult that I got myself to start wearing sandals and flip flops, and walk more and more barefoot at home. About a year ago I stumbled on a website called society for barefoot living, and realized how much fun and healthy it could be walking barefoot.
It may seem odd to some, that most of my back ground pictures on the pages are my own two bare feet. There is a reason behind my madness, and NO, it is not a fetish of mine.
The internet is full of photos of bare feet, bare toes, bare soles, and more, but most of those are not for anyone to take and post elsewhere, and if I did that, I can be sued by the owner of that photo, for posting something I do not own, or have the rights to post. The photos that are free for anyone to use as he pleases, are not the photos I wanted on my site, nor were they the right size for what I needed.
Looking to keep the subject of this site, focused on “Bare feet”, and having no other photos to use as a back ground, I used my own bare feet for this purpose, kept the focus of the site, and no one can say I have no rights on these photos.
Come summer, a lot of the back ground photos will change, as I would take the photos outside, in the park, while on the street and other places, so that you can see how wonderful it is to walk barefoot, shop barefoot, and live barefoot.
It has been a pleasure to be walking around in bare feet, feeling the ground as I never did before, going shopping, movies, friends, and a lot more in just my bare feet, and other then work – being barefoot at all times.
This blog is my way to try and get people to understand why we walk barefoot, and hopefully join us as bare footers.
