How can I follow the directions...

How can I follow the directions...

when a cat is competing for attention? I sat down on the bed to crochet for the first time in many years and Beegie was fascinated with the yarn. I chose the Panasonic for this shot because I needed the wide angle and depth of field. The shutter speed was very slow and Beegie wasn't as sharp as I would have liked her to be. Used a bit of noise reduction and LucisArt and lots of sharpening to capture what I experienced.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18

I really love this image Isabel, it could be me and my cat and it makes me smile as well. My cat often lie in this pose and I think she fell good and relaxed then. I use the same camera like you (a bit older model) and I like this camera as well, it is easy to handle and you can always take it with you (if you don´t forget), your works are always very inspiring to me Isabel, thanks for posting, I like your spontaneity and since today my camera have to be always near by me, lol, have a nice day, Rosemarie :o)

un soirée bien agréable et j'espère que le tricot avance :-)
J'aime voir le chat qui fait son pacha.

How could you not be captivated by this seductive little creature! They have so many ways of getting your attention.

I wonder what you and Beegie are making with that crochet...;^))

Gorgeous Beegie... I could just scratch her belly... but if she's like Minou... you don't scratch for very long ! Beautiful shot.

Great image of life with a cat. Have you tried cropping out the top of the photo so as to remove the TV? Showing the needle and yarn is just a wonderful point of entry.

She knows she's going to win !

You can't compete with a cat like that. Just give up. :)
