or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Boundaries

I’ve been seeing everyone else having so much fun with the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge? I decided to join in. Just like Piglet in Portugal, I’m trying to think outside the box. There is nothing bugging me today!

Boundaries definition from define.com – That which indicates or fixes a limit or extent, or marks a bound.

The cat was definitely limited by the amount of space inside the basket.

This isn’t a recent photo but one of my first cat – Sage.

I came home from work one night and I couldn’t spot her. I saw my other two cats sleeping in the bedroom, but I couldn’t see Sage anywhere. Until I spotted her in the basket on the dining room table.

The photo was taken with a Pentax Spotmatic II camera using a 85mm f/1.9 Short Telephoto Lens. In the 60’s and 70’s, it was often used by photographers as their standard lens. It’s great for taking portrait shots.

For the longest time, this was the only lens I had for the camera until I went out and purchased a wide-angle lens. I went from one extreme to the other.

My daughter chose to use this camera when she took Photography in high school for a couple of years. She’s since upgraded to a Canon Rebel DSLR but she still wants to take this camera from me.

      This was a photo I had and scanned, but yes my daughter and I sometimes still use the old Pentax – a completely manual camera. 🙂

    This is a beautiful photograph Rosemary, well captured. Sage is definitely surrounded by a boundary of her own choice!

      Thanks Barb, It used to be my bread basket, but not after seeing this and capturing the photo. 🙂

    Ah Sage is so cute! Great photo! Lucky you to have a wide angled lens. 🙂

      Thanks PiP, I needed it back then to take photos of the family. The portrait lens wasn’t too good at taking family shots inside the house. 🙂

      Thanks Princess, No sense spending too much money on cat toys, they like the simple things. Talia likes clawing at tape, especially duct tape!! 🙂
