This was one of the last shots of the day. Amazes me how you can go out for an entire day of shooting, go through the world seeing flowers, parades, midgets on tricycles, and the like, and end up sitting by a fence waiting for a cat to walk through so you get just the “best” shot. I guess photography is a lot like life, it’s the little things that get you. That and, of course, it goes without saying, cats and dogs rule the universe, they just let us think that we run planet earth.
Chricel and Kathy were with me when I shot this. Chricel was mad at me because I kept getting off shots of the cat near the fence and she kept trying and trying and that damned cat wouldn’t move when she was ready to shoot. It was hiding in some dark area, unphotographable to us all for quite a while. I was lucky and got off a few shots of it walking near the fence actually. Cats are such difficult creatures but they really fill in corners so nicely and they demonstrate such odd behavior sometimes. Always worth getting off a shot or two.
It could have been worse, it could have been a poppy. At least she didn’t have to pluck it, right?
Until next time…
