My last entry in this “series” had the photo from May 2. The Dispatch had another barefoot photo on May 3, and yet another on May 4.
The one on May 3 was at a fountain at Bicentennial Park (here in Columbus).

In one of the comments to the May 2nd photo, Scott noted that these pictures aren’t all that special, because these barefoot people are in locations where it is “acceptable” for people to be barefoot.
I agree, but I also slightly disagree. These days, there are so many people who are absolutely terrified about going barefoot because they think it is horribly dangerous. I call these people podonoid. <sarcasm>Doesn’t Ms. Gryshavova realize that people may have secreted glass in the fountain?</sarcasm>
These pictures at least show that it is possible to be out barefoot without one’s feet falling off, and without catching some ridiculous disease.
The photo on May 4th doesn’t even have that excuse.

But notice something else. Do you see a sign of shoes with her?
So, how the heck did she get into the Columbus Library barefoot (that’s one of the libraries I’ve sued)?
Are there special undocumented rules that don’t apply if you are a kid?
(I suppose that this photo was posed, and her shoes were placed out-of-scene.)
But still, I think every sign of a person out in public barefoot is a good sign.
