The kittens went back to the shelter today, to get ready to be offered to the public for adoption. Our mission — to get them fattened up a la Hansel & Gretel — was deemed a success, with extra credit points for surrounding them with love and attention so they’re primed and ready for theirContinue reading “Da Capo al Coda”
And how do you know that you’re mad? “To begin with,” said the Cat, “a dog’s not mad. You grant that?” I suppose so, said Alice. “Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wagContinue reading “Cheshire Cat”
Not the shot I was going for, but one of my favorites from this session. Photography is weird — especially when you don’t fully understand what you’re doing. Shot on Google Pixel 3, ƒ/1.8, 1/30, 4.44mm, ISO 1176, black and white filter.
What’s a life without a feeling of giving back? A life half-lived, perhaps. A life satisfying on a surface level, but a little bit empty. A bit uninspiring. You don’t have to be intensely religious, or even spiritual, to experience the adrenaline rush — and with practice, even an all-body euphoria — that comes withContinue reading “Living in the Here and Meow”
That tail. Those eyes. That wiggle! It was our second day in Rome. We’d slept roughly the night before, but forced ourselves to get some sunlight and exercise (the cornerstone of our Anti-Jet-Lag Initiative). Cappuccinos consumed, we put on our comfy shoes, tightened the belts on our fanny packs, and headed out for adventure. WeContinue reading “Welcoming Committee (Rome, Italy)”
One of my favorite moments of last year’s Christmas Eve wrapping frenzy. My younger kitty was convinced that every gift was for her. Oh, and that the gifts were actually the packaging. From that perspective, I suppose she was right. Shot on Google Pixel 3, black and white filter.
I’ve commenced another one of my lunchtime polls in my chats with friends and loved ones, which happens once in awhile when I’ve grown weary of small talk, and am craving conversation that is a little deeper under the surface than “what are you having for dinner tonight.” In the past I’ve gone with theContinue reading “The Wisdom of Cats”
Welcome to our view pretty much every day we were in Rome. After my regular morning quest for cappuccinos, I’d come back to the apartment to fetch my traveling companion, and we’d head out. A mere five minute stroll along a busy street, passing by banks, restaurants, pharmacies, shops, then bam, ruins! And not justContinue reading “And Then There Were Cats (Rome, Italy)”
To my familiars, Farkle and Zoe: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. The thing is, you get a new camera, or even just a new camera phone, and there’s a strong, powerful, compelling, irresistible urge to use it. But you’re in your house, on your couch, and there’s only so many shots of the upright pianoContinue reading “Practicing Photography: A Cat’s Worst Nightmare”
