Saturday Photo: When Walking Gets Too Much and You Need a Little Help...

The world is on holiday this month--or so it seems--and there are going to be many people over the next few days who might wish to have what this man appears to have--three feet!

Actually of course what we see is two boots and one foot, as in the famous picture by Bruegel, The Peasant Wedding.

My photo was taken in Paris, but the need for a little pedestrian aid can occur anywhere. Or any time: the painting dates from 1568.
