Dude, you crack me up (funny)! My dogs do nothing but lay around! I really like that your cat lined up perfectly for you. I cant even get my kids to stand where I want them to. I think your wife and my wif should be friends. They seem to have a lot in common. :) The capture is excellent. #5573347

Flavio Carnevale 2/29/2008 12:38:26 PM

Scott, you made me laugh and laugh! I am in my bed with notebook, and it is funny to laugh about our wives... my wife now is asking me why I am laughing.... Thank you.

Thank you, Karen!

Christian Rosito 2/29/2008 2:31:09 PM

I enjoyed the picture and the story. For me keep on listening to your pets, Great job! #5574132

Marina Moore 2/29/2008 3:43:36 PM

Flavio, I'm a little worried too, but I say out loud "this won't hurt a bit" to my images when I'm using photoshop, and sometimes they answer back! ;) Normal, right?????
Great image, beautiful model. Maybe your wife is jealous of the cat.
You're secret is safe with me.......shhhhhhhhh :) #5574417

Marina Moore 2/29/2008 3:49:30 PM

'Your' not 'you're'. The cat told me. :) #5574430

Scott A. McDaniel 2/29/2008 3:51:57 PM

That's why I normally post from 11pm to 2 am, so I don't get in trouble. At least until the next morning when I wake up and she says "you were up how late?"

Of course I am kidding...kind of. #5574443

Alex T. Mizuno 2/29/2008 7:09:41 PM

Ha ha --- Flavio, you're such a comedian! Your gatto is posing perfectly. Love the comp and the combination of B&W and color. #5575378

Flavio Carnevale 3/1/2008 2:06:32 AM

Thank you all my friends for your help.
Just a hint... my cat is asking me some money or she will not sign me authorization to mantain on web this image. I am trying to corrupt her with some expensive food...
any ideas? #5576335

Scott A. McDaniel 3/1/2008 8:30:36 AM

Change her Tuna to Mackerel! If that doesn't work ask the dog. #5577840

Deb Koskovich 3/1/2008 8:34:55 AM

My goodness, you have a talented and valuable cat --mine just runs when he sees the camera! Wonderful image, Flavio, and I just loved your story. Your wife just doesn't know what she is missing! (Hint: if you can get hold of some Fancy Feast cat food, she will accept that as payment in full...trust me on this one.) #5577857

Deb Koskovich 3/1/2008 8:35:56 AM

Oh, on the Fancy Feast -- I meant for your cat, not your wife, LOL! #5577861

Flavio Carnevale 3/1/2008 4:31:26 PM

I will try with mackerel for wife and Fancy feast for the cat. Hope it works!
Thank you my friends! #5579300

Scott A. McDaniel 3/1/2008 10:29:03 PM

I've had Mackerel before, she might prefer fancy feast. #5580214

Carole F. Ingram 3/11/2008 10:46:00 AM

Superb! Tres mignon ton chat! I'm a big lover of cats and this picture cracked me up! Lovely! :) I have a feeling that my husband will soon get frustrated with me as well, he's already asking "What, are you taking the camera along with you again? Are you going to carry that thing with you everywhere?" hehehehe I don't like doctors either! #5627742

Kevin M. Carnevale 5/29/2008 10:23:05 PM

Flavio, You are a creative person. We must be related in some way. Your photos are great and your stories are funny. My wife stopped asking if I was taking the camera with me a long time ago. she knows I am nuts, just look at my gallery. We all share the same Illness: Creativity. Embrace it. Its what our spouses love about us, no matter what they say.
A spirit with a vision is a dream, with a mission. #5995563

You know I'm crazy about photography.
My wife has no more patience, so I go out and talk alone on rules, settings, framings, light, cameras.
I also started to talk with my pets, and after some months I started to hear them answering me... and I started to make better photos.
You just know I have a photographer dog telling me correct exposures and framing (It's in my gallery).
These days one of my cats started to pose like a great model, adjusting poses on the composition I needed everytime.
My wife is worried for me...
I posted this photo just because She doesn't know English...
Please don't tell her, I don't like my doctor!
