Ok three things:

1.) While taking this photo a guy walks by, sees me and the tripod taking a photo of the mud, so he asks: “WHAT do you take pictures off?” Oh – and he was carrying a Christmas tree! (photo taken on 12/23)
2.) This is my 100th image online! Time to stir some shit up! What brings us to:
3.) You may not notice, but this image gets us into some deep philosophical trouble! First: there is no doubt that a footprint is a thing. It can clearly be described in its physical features, so it is a thing. Its not exactly an item though, because: the footprint is not only on the ground, but it also is the ground itself! Weird, isn’t it? I happen to have an philosophy major and its still creeping me out!
