    So, when selling gear online, if you can't dream up a way to keep your gnarly feet outta the frame I won't buy what you're selling for a nickel. Is it really too much to ask? You're presumably an adult - put your damn shoes on. Whatever the opposite of a foot-fetish is? I got that. I never wanna see your feet. I don't wanna see my OWN damn feet. No feet.

    Mild example of what NOT to do:

  5. Thing is even if your feet are in the frame it only takes a minute to crop the bottom out of the photo.

    Well that would involve actual effort though.

    Reminds me of the time a buddy who was on vacation woke up and found his feet had been sunburned enough to have his flip-flop straps marked on his feet in a bright white upside-down "V" pattern. He thought this was funny enough that he sent me a pic of them. No big deal, except that he only noticed this phenomenon while seated upon the porcelain convenience, and didn't realize he hadn't framed the picture well enough to exclude the rim of the seat/bowl.

    I replied to him with, "Dude. Did you seriously just take a picture to send me while taking your morning dump??" :snaphappy: :poop: :laugh:

    It took a while for him to live that one down. :roflmao:

    I would consider that to be an act of hostility.

    Fortunately, only the leading edge of the bowl made it into the frame. No junk or dump content was transmitted. :roflmao:

    I always make sure to keep my feet out of any gear pics, but it's only because my feet are so beautiful.
    That's exactly why.

    You have been spared the temptation. You're welcome.

    meh.. Whatever. Sometimes I have feet in my photos. My gear is always priced to sell. You don't want a great deal on great gear, someone else always does. I've never failed to sell because my toes are showing.

    Why wouldn't you just step back a little?
    I always ask if it's Toe's Day already.

    Ever notice that people that make the biggest deal about not liking something actually *do* like it? A lot?

    Some folks don't care about that. Some folks are excited about that. Some folks are repulsed by that. Takes all kinds.

    Yeah, no. This is not one of those times. This is not me "protesting too much". This is me protesting just the right amount.

  20. I can’t believe the amount of things I’ve seen reflected in guitar finishes.
    Looking up someone’s snout, while they are taking a photo from above a guitar is really common.
