Pigeon ToedWednesday, July 10, 2019
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pigeon toe, also known as in-toeing, is a condition which causes the toes to point inward when walking. It is most common in infants and children under two years of age and, when not the result of simple muscle weakness, normally arises from underlying conditions, such as a twisted shin bone or an excessive anteversion (femoral head is more than 15° from the angle of torsion) resulting in the twisting of the thigh bone when the front part of a person's foot is turned in.
Fortune has been on my side in showering me with the opportunity to meet and photograph women of unusual beauty. I can remember three in particular. The first was my wife Rosemary. I saw her (walking away) in Mexico City leaving a school where she taught English (and so did I but I had never seen her until that moment). What I saw was perfectly straight, very long blonde hair, a micro mini-skirt and the most beautiful legs I had ever seen (before that they were my mother's fine legs).
A second woman I also saw from the rear. She was at a Ballet BC rehearsal. This was a woman with dark hair in a bun (a dancer what do you expect?). She was waddling away from me most gracefully (imagine a duck from the Paris Opera Ballet). I touched her shoulder. She turned around and I asked her who she was. "I am Sandrine Cassini. I am new here. I started at the Paris Opera Ballet when I was 14."
A third was and is Kethryn Petersen who walks gracefully and most straight. But then how would you explain this shot?
