'Feet First' is a series of pictures by London-based photographer Tom Robbins centering around the juxtaposition between feet in the foreground and colorful landscapes in the background. The contrast between what takes you to a location and the location itself makes for a surprisingly compelling narrative, telling a story of travel and adventure.

As the pictures progress, a story about a family begins to evolve. One picture takes place on a bed and involves a brand new pair of feet. The photographs evolve from two pairs of feet in foreign landscapes to three pairs of feet, indicating the third member to the group -- Robbins's baby daughter.

Whether the background is of a pool setting at a resort or on a beach with the sun setting, the real adventure is the one shared by the growing family.
