Photo365 – Day 316 – gran canaria cat

Taken while on a week’s holiday in Gran Canaria. We stopped in a bungalow at the Cordial Green Golf in Maspalomas. The first thing I noticed on arrival was the number of cats. This one had beautiful blue eyes.

Photo365 – Day 192 – diesel goes mousing

A shot of the expert mouser on the case, shot from a mouse eye view. He sniffed out the hole and was pawing away to catch his prey.
I was trialling the new Olympus Pen fisheye converter on the 14-42mm MkII

I had to shoot at high ISO4000 to stop the movement and get a fast speed as he wasn’t having any cameras point at him, so it’s noisy.

Photo365 – Day 84 – Stubborn Cat

My cat never likes having his photo taken. He always seems to turn away when the lens is pointed at him. There’s no way I could get him to sit and pose. Yesterday I’d planned to take a portrait. I followed him around the garden. He sat down I pointed the camera…he got up and walked to another spot. He laid down, I pointed the camera – he turned his head. I moved position he turned back. He is Simon’s cat!

Anyway today I was out taking some shots with and of a tripod I was testing and I saw him watching. So I pointed the camera around and took a crafty grab shot. He didn’t have time to work out I’d turned my attention on him. Gotcha!

As it’s a rarity I’ve made it my photo of the day for my photo365 project. His name’s Diesel.
