Happy Fathers Day today to those of you who are dads out there. I hope these close up shots provide a little special something for this holiday. And I also want to extend a special thanks to a female follower today, Carol (Sexy*Soles) -- or Silverryder, as she's also known, for sending me some personal shots of herself. They're shown in the first three shots below, and are outstanding.
And a word about some of the comments in the previous Close-ups post a few days ago... I can assure you that I would not knowingly post photos of anyone with a Y chromosome (a male, for you that are biologically-challenged). It is always a risk for photos of non-celebrities, where there's no accompanying full-body shots. For the photos I find from eBay auctions, it's usually a pretty safe bet for me if the size of the shoe being auctioned is less than a womans 8 or so. It's also always a plus when the woman's hand is involved in the shot. That makes for a pretty safe determination as well.
