Gray Kitten

Photographing a kitten is a lot like photographing a toddler, there is constant movement.  I watch to anticipate direction, then creatively find angles for whatever background the cat decides to be on.  I get in position, crop and photograph.  If I’m lucky the cat will be entertained by my talking to it and I get a few seconds.  If not, we are off to the next spot.  This charcoal gray kitten is Bear and amid his playful mood I managed to get these treasures.  The great part about moving around so much is that I was able to get a variety of natural light within my images. 

Kid Quote #1

I love the way kids say things.  Mine make me laugh all the time.  I especially love the times when they say something a new way and it makes me think about it differently.  So here is some encouragement for you today.  This was Jack’s answer to the question, “What is Failure?”


We are trying to stay warm with the recent cold weather we
have been having.  This is my daughter
with our cat, Emmy.  Emmy is from
Italy.  We adopted her 4 years ago when
we lived in Florence.  She is a living souvenir!  She does not like the cold.  Normally she sleeps on on my daughter’s bed at
night.  But these days she burrows her
way under the covers and my daughter finds her curled up trying to get warm.  It’s a symbiotic relationship.
