Portrait of Diego

I could not leave the house because I managed to stub and gash a toe this morning which bled profusely.
Walking is a bother. I don't know when I can wear shoes again, and I don't like driving with flip flops or barefoot.
So my reluctant favorite model had to help me out with my PaD, patiently held by Adelaida.
As time goes on it's becoming more difficult to photograph him. Hopefully this is not an indictment on my photographic skills.

Nikon D700 ,Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
1/250s f/3.5 at 66.0mm iso3200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Beautiful Diego, what an angelic gaze. Cats are like people, some like to be photographed, and some don't. V

What a lovely portrait of Diego! He has this look that to me says he is just humoring you. Nicely done, and I hope your toe is better! Otherwise, poor Diego. V.

Walter so sorry, but you will recover I'm sure. Diego looks a little pensive, but did wait for this perfect shot. V
