That first photo is so odd...I can't quite figure out what I'm looking at, and I like it.
I'm loving photos of peoples feet these days. I feel inspired to go to all the same places my artist friends live!
Could it have been a tomten? Though I don't really know what they are, [possibly Danish?] apart from in a wonderful children's book.
Thanks all!Justin - I am the empress of mudland!ElizT - of course it must be tomten! Although he's late - or maybe too early, or just checking...
