It’s a cat’s world tonight at our home. After driving home from Chicago I was not really inspired to photograph anything for this challenge. Not only that, I was a day behind so I needed two photos to be caught up. As I wandered through the house looking for something to “shoot,” I saw the kitty votive candle holder and for lack of anything more interesting, the candle holder became my subject. To be honest, I didn’t put much time into it, just lit the candle and placed it on a crumpled up napkin. I was a little disappointed in myself but then I told myself that when I am posting a photo a day, there will be “down” days photographically speaking.
Now, what to do about the second photo. As I was sitting on the sofa trying to think of something a bit more creative than a candle holder, Willy, our Russian Blue, jumped in my lap and curled up for a nap. He missed us while we were gone and has not let me out of his sight since our return home. While he slept I turned the camera on him and shot a few frames. That became my entry for day 69 of this challenge.
So, tonight the motif was cats, and now I’m caught up with this challenge. Thanks to those of you who follow along. This is proving to be challenging for sure. Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be a better photographer and I will know my camera with all its advanced settings much better.
