Andy was watching a Harold Lloyd movie with me, so I decided to take some photos of the little rascal enjoying the film. As soon as I picked up the smartphone, though, he lost interest in the film.
I finally figured it out: He was fascinated now with the charger cord to my smartphone. It was still attached to the phone…
…so we played with it instead of watching the film!
A few posts ago, I noted one could see my hands taking Andy’s photo reflected in his eyes. I failed to make an edit of the photo on Paint, so set it aside till today. I’ve no idea why I failed the first time, but here’s the closeup of that reflection. It took me seconds to do it right this time. Good grief!
WOW! Dear Doug, this is amazing, the hand in eye image! Thank you, Love, nia
You could do an even better job of it with your better quality camera!
… 🙂 you made me smile dear Doug, with my Little Big Cats it doesn’t seem easy! They don’t stop, I mean I can’t catch the eye… and they also talk toooooo much!!! For everything they talk… I haven’t had before such a naughty cat before like them. Thank you dear, have a nice day, Love, nia
I can imagine that would make photography difficult! Andy is a very deliberate kitty. He takes his time (usually) making his move.
Reflection of your hand in Andy’s eye is amazing. As always, Mr Andy’s face is so expressive! Does he gnaw on cables?
Fortunately, neither Andy nor his late brother bothered cables or electrical cords. I did put protection on them when they were kittens, but that proved to be unneeded.
That first photo was so clear that we could see your hands. A great achievement. Your picture was that clear.
It’s kind of creepy, but fun!
So beautiful – amitiés 🙂
Thanks! It helps that I have a pretty cat for a subject!
He’s so cute! I hope he doesn’t chew the cable.
Fortunately, neither he nor the late Dougy ever bothered cords or cables beyond “catching” them with their paws.
Such a great shot captured of hand in the eye.
Thanks! It was just matter of doing a closeup of Andy’s face. The reflection was accidentally captured, too.
Accidental but beautiful
The hand in the eye is an interesting shot! Good catch!
Thanks! It was accidental but fun!
Great close up…seems to show the pensive side of his personality.
Actually, you are right about that. Andy tends to be a “thinker”.
I do love the hand in eye photo. The expression on his face could easily be one of “what’s he after me for now?” if we didn’t know the back story. It looks like the opening to “How not to get your cat into the carrier”
That would be his “not the carrier!” look all right! Or his “don’t pet me now” look.
Congratulations on the hand in eye image
Thanks! It was easy to do once I just did it. I’ve no idea why I failed earlier.
It is sure , Doug, if you give a toy ( charger cord ) ; Andy will stop watching the movie and your photo is down ! 🙂 But I have to say the five first photos are beautiful , very sharp and expressive.
Thanks! I usually have poor lighting conditions so there is a bit of blur if Andy moves. Being a kitty, he usually moves!
Photographing an animal is not easy but you make many good photos
Thank, Michel! Practice and good luck are most of it, and willingness to edit out half of the photos because they are terrible or so blurred they are unusable. Of course, sometimes a blurred photo helps tell the story by adding a suggestion of movement. I oftentimes will use one like that. Several in this post have some of that meaningful blur in them.
ha, same here… I want a hidden cam to get that moments LOL
LOL! I can imagine having two subjects, your challenge is several times harder than mine! I know my challenge was much harder when I had Dougy and Andy to photograph.
