I love cats and I love photography. Today, I thought I’d combine the two and share a few of my favorite cat pictures.
This is a neat shot I took of Katy, our Himalayan some years ago. It’s not always easy to capture a mood or a personality when photographing cats, but I thought I did so with this picture. She was peering at me from under a coffee table and I happened to have my camera ready. Stunning, isn’t it?
This is one of my all time favorite shots of my mother’s cat, Smokey. I tell people he actually choreographed this picture. I was focusing on his face as he peered through a flower bush. When I took the picture, he leaped at a bee and this is the result. It won a People’s Choice First Award at our county fair a few years ago.
There’s nothing quite as fun to photograph as a kitten. I practically wore out my camera when Lily was a kitten. And when I hear that someone has a kitten, I’m quick to visit–with my camera, of course. In fact, I think I’ll devote a blog post to kitten photography soon. In the meantime, here’s one of Lily’s baby pictures. Don’t you just want to tickle that tummy?
