These little piggies went to the beach


When one is—how we say—large... big boned? okay, FAT, one is usually not too crazy about having one's picture taken. It is much easier to deny how large you are without a photo stating the truth in front of your eyes. (I never liked mirrors or large store windows either.)

Anyway pictures at the beach are especially problematic ’cause you have so little clothes on that you can't blame the thick fabric or loud designs for making you look 'chunky'. The solution is simple: photograph your feet! It's still you, and yet it doesn't show belly or thighs or how many chins you are sporting! I have a collection of feet pictures from the Mediterranean Sea to Jamaica Bay. This one was my first time at the Pacific Ocean!
