Boo Again

My cats have always been my favorite subjects to photograph and my newest cat, Boo Radley, is no exception. He is my muse! I caught him this morning in his cat bed, looking ever so catlike, so had to do another series of photos. Minor adjustments post processing. Used my Canon pro portrait lens, which I adore.

You have a very cooperative black cat. The black is wonderful and I love his orange eyes. #1659617

Thanks Jane! He doesn't cooperate all the time tho - believe me! (Orange eyes?? Uh oh - is my monitor off? They are yellow on mine. Hmmm...) #11481579

A beautiful portrait of Mr. Boo - the clarity and detail of that wonderful face is just fantastic and love his steady gaze into the camera! (Wish mine were that laid-back when a camera was present!) Congrats on your outstanding Gold Win, Mary-Ella! #11501767
