Agate When She's Calm
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Agate When She's Calm
Agate When She's Calm
Agate doesnt like cameras much. If
I catch her just right, she'll tolerate
me. Here, she's calm. The next
several pictures degenerate into
bad temper and wind up with a paw
swipe at the lens.

    What a great expression on Agate! Love the blues and purples in this as well. Are you in the newspaper business, Art? With that cat name, Agate, I wondered whether you were familiar with sports agate and stock agate. LOL! :-)

Thanks Patricia. I did not name her;
my partner, who is into stones and
gems, did. Agate's son is called Obsidian. I think Agate is an incredibly gorgeous
cat. Obsidian is quite handsome but of course much bigger and masculine.
Look for his photo in my pets gallery.
He loves to pose!

She would be a perfect match for my Boo. They look just alike with those sourpuss expressions! This is great!!!

Hi Art, actually I was half-joking. I kinda figured Agate had something to do with stones and gems! :-) I will definitely check out your pets gallery! :-)

I've got the next picture in my pets
gallerly, just so you can see the
different expression. It's called Angry Agate. It's not
a contest entry, but I posted it
for cat fans. I do have the almost-swipe
but it's a dark, blurry, looming cat
face that's barely intelligible.

Some photos attach themselves to your
heart. You all know what I mean.
Is it because this is my kitty? Probably.
I have it on my wall. It's one of those
special pictures that I love in spite
of its 'ordinariness', i.e. there
are photographers who make me feel
self conscious about cat photos. but
none of them are here at this venue.

thanks

Nothing is ordinary about this cat portrait! The purple and blue colors make her SHINE!!! Very elegant all around!

thank you so much, susana. I was recently
invited to contribute a cat photo to
a publication, and this one immediately
came to mind. I may have something
a little 'cuter' but this one is special.
