Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #6

Photograph My Left Foot.

I just realised the other day that in the last 30 years my foot has been like this I have never actually taken a photo of it…

I was run over when I was about 8 years old, totally my fault crossing the road without looking. The back wheel of the car ran over my entire foot but skidded over the last two toes basically ripping them off. One was stitched back on and the other was just left as a stump. The doctors had been planning to take the stump off when I was older to make my foot look more normal but I like it the way it is 🙂 . I was told I would never have very good balance on this foot but after a lifetime of skiing and skating my balance is better than most people I know.

I keep forgetting that most people either don’t know or have forgotten about it… Its not a big deal its just part of who I am 🙂

This might be one of the last posts like this since I go and get Rollei back from repair this afternoon 🙂 It had its shutter fixed and a good clean and check so it should be sweet 🙂

    • From memory the most painful bit was getting the stitches out which had grown in 🙂
