or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Shadow Part 2

March 8, 2011 15 comments

In order to give myself some time to go through the information from the comments on yesterday’s post Not Knowing How To Use Twitter Properly, I’ve decided to take the easy way out today. I’m posting some extra Shadow photos I managed to find.

There is nothing bugging me today!

or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Refuge

I’m sending you something besides an update to the RandomBlog2011 Challenge for a change. I like having some other fun too! There is nothing bugging me today!

I just saw Barb19‘s blog and I remembered that I had this great photo of my cat. Cinnamon will be 19 years old this July 24th and I’ve had her since the minute she was born. She was the runt of the 4 kittens in the litter.

Cinnamon's Refuge

Cinnamon loves working her way into the layers of the comforter. Once I realized this I always made sure that it was handy for her to sleep in. It used to be my daughter’s comforter when she was younger but it’s now Cinnamon’s.

Cinnamon knows she is not allowed up on the sofa unless there is another throw or blanket and when she wants up she will just sit on the floor in front of me until I notice her. As soon as the throw is on the sofa, up she jumps to snuggle up beside me. Unfortunately she has never been a lap cat and this as close as she allows me to get to her. If I try to pick her up, I risk being clawed which makes visits to the vet real fun trying to get her into the carrier.

or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Boundaries

February 9, 2011 21 comments

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.
