Happy Feet!

This was a grab shot with my smartphone, I saw the fish nibbling the feet in a fish-tank through a shop window, it was only afterwards that I noticed the other foot reflections, this is the kind of quirky shot I like!

A fish pedicure is a beauty treatment that uses dozens of tiny fish to nibble away dead and hardened skin from the feet. During a session a person immerses their feet in a tank of warm water and lets the minute, toothless Garra rufa fish nibble away for around 15 to 30 minutes. The fish are said only to eat dead skin, although there are some anecdotal reports that they can break the skin if they nibble too deep.
