Another shot of my kitty, Sammy. I was working with aperture and shutter speed to see what results I could get and he was the only one still awake. (For some reason, my daughter doesn’t like the flash from my camera waking her up at 1 o’clock in the morning!) I just loved this one – his tongue looked so pink against his gray fur! HAPPY FRIDAY!
