Cat Paw, with Foot

Call me strange, but I love this picture:

(Call me strange, please!)

I received a new camera for Christmas, but because I’ve been so focused on the WIP, I haven’t had much time to play with it. “Cat Paw, with Foot” is the height of my creative abilities for the moment, I’m afraid. But isn’t it cute?

I took an extended long weekend over the past few days, leaving early Friday morning with My Liege to pick up Eldest Son from university. Drove back Sunday, fell into bed from exhaustion. Yesterday, more exhaustion, as E.S. and I had to drive again, this time to a closer university, to explore his options for after he earns his B.A. I’m getting back to the WIP today, but have realized it’s probably overly ambitious to announce that I expect to be finished this week. So I won’t. Announce it, that is. And I don’t expect it, either. I’ll be more than happy to finish next week.

So, Blog Lite will continue over the next several days. Luckily, Silhouette Special Editor author Mary J. Forbes is guest blogging next Tuesday, May 5th, to help me take up the slack. And I did take some nice photos of the ferry trip to pick up E.S. If I get time, I’ll try to post some here. They were point and shoot, unlike “Cat Paw, with Foot.” But the scenery is gorgeous all the same.

    Yep, it’s not only creative and colorful, but I’m sorta wondering how you got kitty to pose like that! Good job!

    Cindy, you are strange.

    LOL That’s a great picture! I’m looking forward to seeing more.

    What is really strange is how sitting in a car for long hours can be so tiring. I wonder why that is. You go on your book!

    Hi Tina!

    The Evil Entity just happened to be sitting that position, on her window perch in my office. I took several photos of her, felt like I was 15 with my first camera. Dozens of cat pictures then, LOL.

    I love playing with depth of field and composition. Plus, I love her paws!

    Hi Edie, you’re right, why is sitting while driving or flying or riding a train so darn tiring? If I’m traveling across time zones, then it makes sense. But I didn’t drive at all this weekend. I was a passenger. The dh drove the entire time. Oh, he threatened to have me drive when I fell asleep. Maybe that’s why I wound up so tired. Plus, we were very busy visiting friends, packing up our son, and having an all-round good time while we were there. And a 90 minute ferry ride each way adds to the travel exhaustion. It’s good to be home!

    Very cool indeed! I love arty shots like that 🙂

    No wonder you’re exhausted – all that driving would do that to me as well. Hope your wip goes well and you’re finished soon.

  6. Cindy Says:

    Thanks, Teresa. The Evil Entity is actually very proud of her pose. You can’t see her face, however, so you’ll have to take my word on it.

    Blog lite–I love it! The photo is quite artistic. Have fun with your camera!

    Glad you like it, Alynn. So then I’m not strange. Okay, maybe I am, but so are all of you.

    Either that, or we’re all artistes. 😉
