Happy Holidays!

Kellie posed for a set in front of her Christmas tree this year.

I want to wish each and every member a happy holidays and say thank you for your membership to this site. When I started this site in 2005 I planned to do pretty much the same thing I had done with my old site in the years before. Over the years I've tried my best to introduce new items, whether it be sections, content and of course models. Models leads me to the next group I'd like to thank.

When I started this site at the end of 2004, which opened on December 29, 2004, I had eight total models. Those models were: Amber, Cierra, Lauryn, Lisa Tyler, Madison, Maria, Mindee and Sue Lovely. Presently there are 41 models on the site. I couldn't do this without any of you. So if you're reading, thanks for all the great sets and ideas you've brought to the site. I might take all the photos, but it is each of you that make the sets what they are.

Again, happy holidays to each and every single one of you. It has been a great ride thus far and I wish you and your families the best!

Kellie - Footography

One of Kellie's newest sets, still unpublished to the site.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

While reorganizing the Columns section last week I came across a couple of columns I wrote that I named "footographies" (like biographies) on specific Soles of Silk sole mates. I thought to myself that it has been a long time since I did a footography, so I'm making an effort to once again do them every so often. When I thought about who I wanted to use in this one, one model stuck out to me and that model is none other than Kellie.

Kellie and I have been friends for years. Kellie, her twin sister, Kimmie, and I worked together for most of the time that I've known them and both girls have always been awesome to photograph. I've gotten some killer sets with each - both together and separate. But this column will focus on Kellie as she and I still work together presently and she has been a big help in the past with all aspects of this site.

Kellie currently features the second most photos here on the site at 778 behind Madison, who has 974. Both girls have posed for me whenever I have needed them and also have a number of still unposted galleries. I tend to do several sets at a time when I meet with them, so getting all the girls' sets up in a timely manner with so many models isn't always the easiest. Thus far, here is all the galleries, posted and unposted, that Kellie has posed for:

As you can see, Kellie has a lot of camera time with me. She's filled in for shoots with models that have cancelled on me, once even doing a set I needed that very night for the next day's update.

Within a week or two I plan on having Kellie back in front of the camera again for some more photos. She has talked to a couple of her friends in attempts to get them to also pose for the site, but the girls have been hard to schedule up until now. She seems to like the multiple model sets, posing with her sister Kimmie, Carmen, Cheri and Shayna thus far.

Aside from the posing, Kellie has always been someone I can bounce ideas off of for shoots, even when not shooting her. She will come to me with ideas she thought of on her own and ask me what I think about them. I often do the same thing to her. Sometimes I wonder how many people have overheard our conversations and at work and wonder, "Why are they talking about foods to step in?" or something similar.

Kellie recently served as one of the two judges in the first ever Soles of Silk Wallpaper Design Contest along with Abby. Kellie will most likely be on of the models you will be able to design wallpapers with in the second contest upcoming.

I owe Kellie a bunch when it comes to all the things she's done and helped me with here on Soles of Silk. She really loves posing for the camera and I couldn't be happier watching her spread those toes on her little size 5 feet. Thanks Kellie and I'll be seeing you in a few days for some more photos.

In Talks - Little Dee & Mikayla

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Unless you are new to the world of online foot models, you have most certainly heard of Little Dee and Mikayla, a.ka. "Mile High Mikayla." Well, it looks like Soles of Silk will be adding both of these lovely ladies and their sexy soles to the sole mate roster before the end of the year! I've always adored both girls over the years and always said it would be awesome to one day get to do a photo shoot of each.

In the past I have been lucky enough to meet and do shoots with some of the other well known foot models from the web such as Lexi, Jacklyn Lick and Lisa Tyler and be able to have some of the non-foot fetish models cross over into it on a regular basis such as Kat Noir, Molly and Sara Swirls. Of course, now Layla and Chrystine are out there doing their own thing and I got to work with them early on and continue to do so. But there is something to finally meeting and taking photos of someone you've been fond of for countless years and that is what I am looking forward to with both Little Dee and Mikayla.

I've always been a fan of Little Dee and her little feet.

Little Dee
I first saw Little Dee on Feet Fair years ago and fell in love with her immediately. She is as cute as a button and looks like a very fun model to work with. She has since appeared on countless sites around the web and looks to enjoy having her feet pampered by her fans at parties and the like. I have also had a few of you ask if I could get her to pose here and it looks like that wish will be granted in November.

These will be the biggest feet I will probably ever photograph.

It was also years ago when I first saw a pair of size 16 female feet online, yes size 16, that caused me to sit there speechless and in awe. I've heard about "big size 10 feet" and such, but size 16's! Damn! Those feet belonged to Mikayla and I had several conversations with her online when I used to run my old site. When I got in touch with her a couple of weeks ago I was shocked to learn that she lived much closer now and was actually interested in being added to the site's sole mate roster.
If you guys have any other suggestions for models you'd like for me to work with, I'm willing to see what I can do. Just remember, some models wish to remain exclusive to their site(s), some live way too far away and some will probably be way out of my price range. Yeah, I'd love to have Carmen Electra pose here too.

Carmen Returns, But I Get a Scare

A shot from one of Carmen's newest sets.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

It has been a little over two years since Carmen and I have met to do new photos for Soles of Silk. Her thread about her posing again on the site's forum always saw periodic comments and wishes of a Carmen return. Well, if you looked at this week's coming soon photos you will already have noticed that she has finally posed again, bringing her "little pitters" back, as she called them in an e-mail earlier this week.

You don't know how excited I was to finally be able to get Carmen back in front of my camera. She always was one of my best female friends, but over recent years we grew apart somewhat. I still love the little gal to death and always have a good time whenever I'm with her, it is just we don't see each other like we used to.

Well, on Tuesday I picked Carmen up for this much anticipated shoot. I had picked to do her first photo sets at a park several miles north of where I live. The park has many historic country style buildings, such as a blacksmith building, barns, etc. Planning accordingly, Carmen brought a really cute one-piece dress and wore knee high boots on her little feet. She looked perfect for the settings I saw online when looking at the park's web site.

It didn't take us too long to get to the park, but along the way I made sure to buy some more camera batteries as the ones I've been using are losing their charge and I wanted to make sure I didn't run out if we took a bit of time. But once at the park we headed off down a trail that we thought... okay, I thought, headed to a covered bridge. After walking over a mile down the wrong trail, we decided to come back to the main area of the park and do some photos.

The entire time along the trail Carmen told me her feet were really sweaty as she didn't have socks on. Yeah, such a tease, huh? I wasn't sure she knew some of us foot guys like that, but I told her that some of us indeed do. She smiled and said it a few more times on the walk back.

Once we got back to main park area, I decided to shoot by the blacksmith shop as there was lots of old background to use that would just rock along with the way she was dressed. So sitting back, Carmen began to unzip those boots (all on camera of course). I'd be lying if I'd say I didn't smell her feet a little sitting in front of them. I'd also be lying if I didn't admit that I got close to them on purpose. They were very damp and warm as I brushed some fuzz from the inside of the boots off her soles a couple times. I playfully sniffed my fingers afterward and she laughed. Ahh, the perks of this "job." They did smell nice though.

We ended up doing a set's worth of photos and then I switched into black and white mode. About a month ago I saw some black and white photos Lauryn did of herself using her camera's timer function and she inspired me to do some artsy photos again. I had Kellie do some Monday when I took some photos with her and I wanted Carmen to do some too. So we did a few dozen awesome black and white shots - all non-foot based.

After the artsy fartsy photos were done, Carmen changed into another set of clothes with a bandana through her hair - which I loved! Nearby there was construction on a bridge in the park and we decided to do some dirty foot shots with all the construction equipment and signs in the background. Dirty foot fans will enjoy this set when it is posted.

That about ended the day for photos. We headed back toward town and grabbed a bite eat and then I dropped her off and rushed home to upload the photos. I was so excited to see how they came out, but then my heart dropped to the floor.

I inserted the camera card into my card reader and was told the card was corrupt and couldn't be read. I pulled it out and stuck it back in to make sure it was aligned and all that good stuff. It was all the way in and I got the same message. I took it back out, pushed it into the camera and checked the review menu. All the photos and video clips were still on the card. I tried one more time and was asked to format the card this time. I clicked no and jumped over to the Macintosh. Macs are so much more forgiving with data from my experiences, so I was praying that it would read the card. It didn't.

At this point in time I was really upset as I thought I had lost the photos we spent all day taking. I tried my Windows PC one more time and now I was told the card was empty. Tried the camera again and also told the card was empty. Now it was done. Those photos were lost!

I called Carmen and told her. She was quite upset, as was I. She was so excited to see how they came out and was really excited to be in the black and whites too - all of which were lost. Or so I thought...

Being so upset I posted some threads on the Wu's Feet Links Forum about my problems and people were all posting how bummed they were for me. Then a shining light! A forum member posted a link to a site that sold a program that would possibly read corrupt files and data on all kinds of disks/cards. It was worth a try, even though I didn't hold out much hope as the computer and camera both said the card was empty.

After downloading the program, which is called Bad Copy Pro, I ran it and low and behold, it was finding files on the disk that were the general size of the typical .jpg photos on the camera card. It took some time to complete, but it also found a video clip at the end, which was the last file I had saved to the card. I clicked to preview one of the photos and there it was! Carmen's moist little feet fresh out of those warm boots looking right at me. I went back to the site and purchased the registration code and now I am the proud owner of all those photos and videos I thought I lost! After being so upset and ready to go back and shoot the same sets over again on Wednesday, now I am one happy photographer who still gets to spend another day with Carmen doing a second day of photos that I had planned on doing anyhow.

What's New Around Soles of Silk?

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

I have been a busy little foot-loving bee this past week. For some time now I have been tinkering around with different things with the site, namely the Video Clips section (including the actual clips) and the Columns Section.

Video Clips
Well, it only took me forever and a day to give up with the previous set up and go buy myself a new video program at Best Buy. I ended up getting Movie Edit Pro 12 for my PC. Now, I wasn't sure exactly what to get as I had a top of the line program in Final Cut Pro on my Macintosh. I looked at most of the programs at Best Buy thinking they might be novice and lacking in some features I might want later.

After using the program for a couple of days, I have been satisfied with the purchase. It has made editing video clips a one computer process with none of the headache you are used to hearing me bitch about. I am currently saving the clips in Windows Media format again, but in their current 640x480 resolution - without the loss of quality from going to Mac to PC with the secondary programs I had been using.

This week's update marks the first time I have posted clips using the new program. Mindee's newest clip along with five previously posted clips, which I have remastered, are there for the viewing. Each week I intend to add some of the older remastered clips.

Video Clips Section
You will notice a change on the Video Clips section when you visit. Now I have a preview image of the clips, along with their duration and size of the posted below. The three newest clips will be featured at the top of the page and then moved below as newer clips are added.

The remastered clips I am working on will be added into the past clips section each week. I haven't deleted the older clips, however. You will be able to find them in the Video Archive section. Once I remaster them, I will be removing them from the archives.

Over the next few weeks you will notice a similar change in the Columns section with older columns being moved to yearly archive pages. I currently have every single column since the site's opening found on one page. The list is getting too long and I want to organize it a little better.

The images found inside the large black rectangles on the tops of all the main pages of the site are being updated with new photos and new models. As a graphic designer I like to inject some spice into even the most simple of things. As an added bonus, I have added images from sets that aren't even posted yet as a preview of things to come.

August - This -n- That

Abby (right) introduced me to Taylor, who is now a sole mate.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Well it is August and this summer seems like it just started yesterday. Where did the time go? Seems like I haven't done much of anything this summer, but yet it is creeping ever so close to being over. I arrived at these sediments a few weeks ago when I began booking as many models as I can into July for some much needed new content. Not that I didn't have plenty of content already shot, I just didn't want to let the summer pass with getting a bunch more.

The first model I met with is featured on this week's update. Abby and I had planned on doing some new photos when she moved into her new apartment. The day before the photos she asked me if I'd like to shoot her friend, Taylor. She told me she was a cute little blonde and I'd love her. She was right. So I did some content of the both of them in solo sets, which you can already see on the site, but I also did one of the two girls together. I bet you can't wait until I post that one!

Mindee was overdue for a shoot. I'm so glad to have gotten some new photos with her.

Then there was Mindee. It had been more than a year since I had met up with Mindee. She was always a good friend to me and of course, I thought she had two really cute size 8 feet. Well, one night as I was looking over who I had not shot in some time and Mindee sends me a text message about posing. We set up a date and time and you have already seen the awesome sole shots we took in last week's update.

Another person I had been talking to about getting with for some photos at that time was Kelsey. I told her she needed to get barefoot for me soon and we finally set up a day and took a long drive for a day of photos. One of those sets will be coming up very soon, I assure you. She did all kinds of themes and her feet are just so adorable!

Later that same week I was able to meet up with the always energetic and ready to shoot, Madison. Madison and I had been throwing around some ideas and we met up on weekday to do a couple of sets. I also got to eat a few M&M's that she stuck between her toes as we sat in her living room shooting the shit. No, we didn't do an M&M theme.

The very next day I got with Kellie and did a shoot theme she has been wanting to do for some time. What theme you ask? You'll just have to wait, but it was quite colorful and fun!

Lizzie is one of Soles of Silk's newest additions.

While contacting all these existing models I also managed to meet another new model by the name of Lizzie. Lizzie is debuting on the site next week and was a super cool person that I had fun shooting. I got to do a couple of sets with her and would like to get together for some more before summer is out.

While on the topic of new models, I am still in talks with a couple of friends of existing models here on the site that have expressed an interest in posing. Two of them I am hoping to make plans with in the weeks to come.

With all good news comes bad news, however. At this time two of the site's models will not be making any more appearances for the time being. Both Andrea and Krystie have a few real life things going on and although they loved posing here, and I stressed "loved," both need to step back to take care of some things. I respect both of them as friends and hope everything works out. Maybe one day they'll pose again, but not at this time.

I've had some great feedback from the first Soles of Silk Wallpaper Design Contest. A few people missed the posts I had on the site's forum and on the site's MySpace page. I am hoping for an even better turn out when I host the next one, so be on the lookout. And for you current members out there, lets see some more designs from you guys as you are eligible too!

Last on the list is my constant lack of video editing skills. I shoot my web clips on the still camera at 640x480, but the software I've been using, although very professional, didn't like the .avi files that the camera created. I came up with a way to convert the files into .mpgs, but it also shrunk the files down to 320x240. When I finally found a program to change those .mpg files into .wmv files, the loss of quality was taking its toll. Well, I think I finally figured out some ways to corner these two programs I am using (one on my Mac and one on my PC). It still takes too much dicking around, but I think the quality is much better. For some reason my PC needs DivX to view the clip that says is supported in Windows Media Player, but I have given up trying to figure this out tonight. Have a look at Taylor's first video post and tell me what you think.

2007 Soles of Silk Design Contest Results

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Only July 12, 2007 the last of the wallpaper designs were submitted for the first ever Soles of Silk Wallpaper Design Contest and I sent off the designs to be reviewed and judged by two of the site's sole mates. Those sole mates were none other than Abby and Kellie.

I had a handful of participants for this brand new contest and almost every one of them entered several designs each. Although only each person was only eligible for one prize, those people showed off their skills and passion for the three models they could chose from to design wallpapers with - Chloe, Layla, and Precious. I am sure each of those girls will be happy as ever to see themselves as the subject matter for their designs.

After talking with Abby and Kellie about their favorite designs of the bunch, it was determined there was a tie for the second 3-month prize. Because of this, I gave three 3-month membership prizes instead of the two I had originally announced. I also took it upon myself to give everyone who submitted this first time around a 1-month membership instead of the original four I had intended to give away. I wanted everyone to come away with something for their efforts this first time around.

And now onto the grand prize winners...

When Abby and Kellie sent me their favorites, both had picked the same design as their first grand prize winner. And here is that design featuring Chloe:

When it came to picking the second grand prize winner of a 3-month membership, Abby went with this design of Precious: 

But Kellie's choice was different than Abby's and instead of serving as a tie breaker vote, I went with giving all three artists a grand prize. Here was Kellie's second choice, also of Chloe: 

For all of you who won and participated in this contest I once again say thank you. I have posted each and every one of your designs in the Downloads section, where they will remain to be downloaded and used by fans of the site or the models you used. I will be redesigning the section soon so that people can find each of the different types of downloads in an organized fashion, but until then, they're all there to check out. I hope to see all of your designs again when I run the second Soles of Silk Wallpaper Design Contest. And for those of you who didn't participate, I hope to see all of your great artwork the next time!

Members, Turn In Your Entries

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

The first ever Soles of Silk Wallpaper Design Contest just got underway last week and already there has been a number of entries. I was shocked to see them come in so early as the deadline is Thursday, July 12. But it seems like people were eager to get their design skills showcased for a chance to win some membership time to the site. But one thing I want to stress to all of you current members is that this contest is ALSO for you.

I had contacted BHE prior to running this and asked them if people with current memberships could either have free months placed into their re-occuring memberships, or for those one-time memberships, have them extended. I was told that would not be a problem, so I hope that all of you take some time to show me your skills before the July 12 deadline. Click on the banner above for more information. And good luck!

Upcoming Design Contest

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

It has been some time since I held a contest on the site and with two recent fan wallpaper submissions to the site, I have decided to start holding regular design contests. Here is the basics of what I am doing.

About every four to five weeks I will post a link to a folder on the site that will have three sub folders within it, each belonging to a different model. Each model's folder will have numerous photos inside along with basic information on her. Also in the master folder will be the site's logo and some basic information on the site.

Each contest will have a certain time frame in which to create your designs of a wallpaper of a single model from that contest's folders. Multiple submissions will be allowed, although only one winning submission per designer will be allowed. When the time frame expires I will pull that folder and its link from the site.

Judging will be a two tier event. I will first select all the submissions that followed the posted rules and then I will have two random models from the site look over the submissions and pick which ones they liked the best.

Prizes will be in the form of either a free 3-month or 1-month membership. I have spoken to BHE and members who already have re-occuring memberships will be able to get free months if they enter and are picked.

Submissions will become the property of the site (whether winning or not) and may be posted in the site's Downloads section. Be sure to check back in the next few weeks to read all the official rules and best of luck to all of you designers out there!

Spyware Downtime

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

I've been on many computers that were full of more spyware than personal files. A little over a year ago, when I was still using my Mac (I loathed PC and swore I'd never have one), I just couldn't figure out how that much spyware could find its way onto someone's PC. Well, I got attacked by the spyware asshats on Tuesday, and man, I was so pissed I almost burned off the site folder and wiped the system. Here is how it happened:

Being a foot fetish web site owner and a fan of female feet, I sometimes go all around the web and see what is happening in the world of feet. Well, I just so happened to fall into one of those link traps where you get nothing but link site upon link site coming up on your screen. When I got that all straight there was a window with what looked like a nice foot clip staring at me. Like a dumb ass, I clicked it and it told me to install an Active X component to view. Well, that just so happened to be the spyware trick and dumb ole me fell for it.

Now I've been using Window for about two years here and really, both PC and Mac are trying to be so much like each other it isn't funny. But man, none of this dumb shit effects the Macs - well, that I've ever seen in all my years of being a Mac user. It is a good thing that so many companies make programs for the PC, but at the same time, you get a TON of trash programs and spyware items. The Mac has less and from what I see, more stable programs. It can get confusing when you always have to download this, install that, update this thing, etc. on the PC. It is easy to see why so many PC users have these issues.

Anyhow, to make a LONG story short (about four hours worth of long story), I finally got the crap fixed. Well, there might be some spyware still here, but at least the control panel is gone from Explorer and the annoying system alert messages have been cleared from the task bar. After downloading and paying the $20 fee for AdAware, which didn't fix the problem, but found other spyware, some little 3rd rate free program removed a bunch of files and things seem to be working.

Sometimes I miss my little fruity Apple!

Celebrating 40 Models

Many people were excited to see Delicious posing for Soles of Silk.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Over the last five weeks Soles of Silk has debuted five new models. Those models, in order of appearance are: Natalie, KrystieDanielle, Delicious, and Ann. It was the longest addition of brand new models since the site debuted, but that streak isn't what this column is about. The addition of those five models listed above has put the grand total of models on this site to 40.

Every single model has been a pleasure to shoot. Whether it be someone like Madison, who I've photographed so many times that I'm still sitting on photos I did of her last year, or someone like Ann, who has been on the site all of a few hours, every shoot is one I treasure. I've said many times in the past, many of these girls are friends of mine, but those I didn't know before I did sets with them, I now consider them my friends as well. I was worried when I started this venture that I would find models who thought the fetish/subject is strange, but that just hasn't happened. Many of these girls think the fetish/subject is fun. They enjoy seeing their photos here on the site and even come to me with ideas for future sets.

One thing that has been nice about posting all these models has been the overall response to each and every set. I haven't posted a set since I've begun Soles of Silk that someone hasn't commented on either through e-mail, the Soles of Silk Forum or now on the Soles of Silk MySpace page. And with the site not showing adult content, but rather focusing on the girls and their pretty feet, the general comment is classy. I have forwarded many of them to the girls or have told them in person when I see them. Each and every sole mate seems to be someone's favorite model on the site.

I don't know how many models I will end up with on this site over the course of the years, but one thing I am always trying to do is juggle the existing models with all the new additions. With that being said, please enjoy the five newest sole mates and the 35 who came before them. I hope to photograph each and every single one of them again soon!

I actually shot Danielle on the same day as Delicious (above), just hours before.

The Basics - Reading & Writing

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

I will be the first one to tell you that I am happy to see members and even non-members writing to me about what they like about Soles of Silk and what they want to see on the site. But then there are those e-mails that are just so far out there that they get annoying. One of those overly annoying things has been happening a LOT since I created a MySpace page for the site. That one annoying thing is the guys who write to me that they want to suck my toes and do all these other kinky things to me. Up until now I have always responded with a pleasant, "Sorry, you've mailed the Web master, not model-x, but I am glad you enjoyed model-x." But seriously, after getting about seven of those kinds of messages in one day on MySpace last week I got a little pissed and wrote a bulletin about the situation.

Now some may argue that it is confusing that there is a picture of a sole mate as the main picture. Okay, fair enough. But then my argument is that right beside that same photo it says, "Male." Furthermore, the text in the next column over reads that the MySpace page is for the Soles of Silk Web site and its fans. Go into the pictures section and you see a photo of each and every model. And since those seven messages I have even added a little aside about the page being run by a male web master. How much more obvious do you have to get for some people?

After I posted my bulletin one of those who e-mailed me about wanting to take me out that night told me to get over myself. But about a dozen people sent me messages saying "amen" to what I wrote. Some of those were fellow Web masters with MySpace pages too, all of who have had the same issues. Others were just fans who couldn't believe someone couldn't see that the person they're messaging was a guy because of all the reasons above.

So in closing I leave you this. I love reading all of your letters and opinions. But before you e-mail me or anyone else online, make sure you know who you are talking to before saying some of the things you are thinking. After all, if you really get turned on by "my" feet, I can send you a nice picture of my hairy toes. Not sure that will be what you had in mind, but for that reason you just might want to check next time.

New Arrivals & Upcoming Models

Natalie is Soles of Silk's newest addition to the model roster.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

This week marks the arrival of a new sole mate named Natalie. I met Natalie at a friend's Super Bowl party not too long ago. If you read her mini-profile on her model page, then you'll know that she is also Bethany's cousin.

When Bethany introduced me to Natalie we made some small talk and the conversation led to the site and Bethany's pictures. I ended up asking Natalie if she'd like to pose, and although I did not get an answer immediately, I was in contact with her shortly thereafter and made plans to do a photo shoot with her for the site.

Natalie was not the only girl I met at the party who is supposed to be modeling for the site, however. A girl who I was introduced to, who is the younger sister of two guys I knew growing up, approached me and said hello. It had been so long since I had seen her last that I didn't even recognize her. Small world! Anyhow, she mentioned she'd be up for modeling for the site. Now I am just trying to get a date/time with her so that she can bare her soles.

Another girl I met at the Super Bowl party is good friends with Lauryn. Lauryn told me that her friend has really cute feet and she is going to try to get her to model for me. She also told me that her boyfriend might be the reason why she doesn't. I'm keeping my fingers crossed because this girl is a cutie.

Lauryn's mom mentioned she'd interested in modeling for Soles of Silk.

And perhaps the most interesting person who approached me at the party was Lauryn's mother. Yes, that is right, her mom. Apparently Molly, who is Lauryn's sister-in-law, has shown her the site. When her mom came to me, she slid off her shoes and put her feet on my knee, asking me if I thought her feet were cute. I was taken back a little since her husband was there and I didn't want to cross any boundaries. Throughout the course of the night, her mother would keep showing me her feet and asking me what I thought. It was fun to see someone her age into what us "kids" were up to. But as it sits right now, Lauryn, her mom, and Molly should be doing a three girl set sometime in the next couple of months.

For a very long time now I have been talking about an old college friend who was supposed to model for this site. She has appeared on my old site and I was excited that she was going to pose for me once again. Well, next week Krystie will debut with her size 6.5 feet. Krystie was so excited when I asked her to pose years ago and was equally energetic in the sets I did with her Monday night. You'll be seeing her next week.

Also for the longest time I have been after Kellie to ask her friend to model for the site. Finally a few weeks ago her friend sent me a message saying she wants to pose for me. This girl is cute and I can't wait to have her in front of my camera. She's quite busy with school and life, but I hope to have her appear sooner than later.

Wendy might have a friend interesting in posing.

Just this past week Wendy responded to an e-mail I sent her about doing some more photos saying that she might have a friend who would like to pose for the site. I am still waiting to hear back from her with her answer.

With the Soles of Silk MySpace picking up more friends daily I only wondered how long it would take for someone to approach me about modeling. Last week I got that first contact asking just that. Foot Mistress Danielle, who lives not too far from me, should be doing a few sets with me this Wednesday and be teased as an upcoming update in the next week or two. This blonde beauty seems really excited to work with me and I am equally as excited.

Over the weekend I attended my first foot party. It wasn't one of those big ordeal ones you see advertised. It was a low key event and I was invited by an old college friend who also has a foot fetish. He had been after me in the past to attend, but work and life caused me to miss them. Needless to say, I met a few girls at this one that I am looking to possibly shoot for the site. Best of all, every one of these ladies are African American, something this site has been lacking. 

You may have seen some of the girls on other sites before, such as Delicious, who I am supposed to shoot later in the day after Danielle. But there are also three or four other girls who I am going to talk with to see if they'd be interested. Delicious has posed for DC Fetish Girls. The web master from DC Fetish Girls, as well as Mindstatz, were also present at the party.

The above mentioned ladies are my most promising future shoots. I have had some other contacts about shoots, but nothing more than a short exchange or contact via e-mail. I will keep you all informed about any new models right here in the Columns section.

Soles of Silk on MySpace

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Last week I was working on a new addition to Soles of Silk. You won't find this addition on the site, but rather on another popular site, MySpace.

It seems like anyone and everyone has a MySpace now. And to think I made one a little more than a year ago when I was dating a girl who told me how great the site was. I think my MySpace sat there for a year without a single picture or bit of information placed on it. Still, I had people wanting to be my friend.

In the here and now all my friends and people I've met online are making their own MySpace pages, some with killer designs and others, well... I won't get into those. It only seemed logical to make the move to have Soles of Silk on MySpace with its immense popularity.

I've went and posted a handful of photos on the page as well as giving it a unique Soles of Silk color scheme with graphics of some of your favorite sole mates to make it feel like home. I encourage you to check it out and of course, add the site to your friends lists, leave comments and tell me what you think. There are still some things I am looking at adding in so you can see what's new here on the site while being on MySpace, but for now, tell me what you think of what's already been done.
