Last Saturday was a big day for Handicap International France - it was their 19th Pyramide des Chaussures ("shoe pyramid" - to be taken literally!) and I was asked by one of the organisers, who happens to be a very close friend of mine, to be one of their official photographers.
It was an absolutely brilliant day. It was great to see so many volunteers giving their time for charity, and fighting for such a just cause. The aim of the day was to get more signatures for Handicap International's petition against cluster bombs and land mines.
There were some brilliant artists there, a HUGE pyramid of shoes I got to climb (any of you who know me or have seen my wedding photography know how much I love shoes... it was brilliant!), and various workshops to teach passers by more about cluster bombs and land mines.
These are some of the photographic highlights of the day - but if you've read this far, go a bit further, and go and sign that petition. It's really worth your five minutes - you can do that here: http://act.handicap-international.org.uk/petition/1/
