Barefoot in the grass

…is one of the most relaxing feelings I know. I think this love of barefootness started when I was a child and moved to Sweden. The grass there was soft and welcoming, not like the thick perfectly trimmed Houston outdoor-carpets which actually hurt when you walked or sat in it (wearing shorts). No bare feet there, the risk of cutting your feet was too high.
I also believe that running around barefoot makes people feel more free and relaxed. Kids just take off and do their thing. That’s when I do my best to run after and catch a shot or two of how each child enjoys that barefoot feeling. Thanks to Ian and his family, for letting me be part of their barefoot afternoon in the park!
