My friends often cat sit and have liked after a number of cute cats. This one was a cutey. Just like all shy models, cats need a while to get used to a camera and I didn't have much time to introduce myself. Even though this isn't the most relaxed cat picture, I do like the cute cat and the look of my 50mm.
I was asked to take photos of Shizuka's ceramic art works yesterday and was fortunate to get her to pose with one. Shizuka is an artist from Japan working in Frankfurt with an amazing imagination and vision for creating art that you wouldn't particularly expect from such a quiet modest person.
A lady and her daughter were carrying some kittens they said were a month old through the streets of Offenbach. I thought they were going to sell them but could be wrong. They were too cute to not take a photo.
Was disappointed that this image is ever so slightly blurred but it's not so noticeable at internet sizes. He didn't like being photographed much and the lens meant I had to get up close to get a photo. I was lucky he didn't run off until after the shot but would've been better if I had more time to think about the right settings or had a better lens for the job.
