photoblog image Cat at the Mill

Cat at the Mill

I was so sad this came out soft :(

This cat was hanging out around an old saw mill, now a tourist attraction and retail store. Lots of old pieces of the mill are scattered aroundt he property and/or are on display. I really liked the colour tones and did my best to capture the moment but the cat quickly decided it didn't want it's picture taken and moved on.

Being so cloudy the best I could do was a 1/20s at 35mm (70mm equiv.) with the ISO I had set. Knowing full well this would not be sufficient, but without enough time to boost the ISO, I snapped the shot off.

Could it be slightly more well composed? yes. I know I'm missing part of the cat but I don't mind :) Sorry about the softness. I would not normally have posted it as a result but I really like the cat. It's cute and remineds me of one I used to have when I was much younger.

Tiny! And on my birthday, besides! wink
I think it's a great photo regardless. Animals aren't exactly the most cooperative when it comes to taking photos so don't stress because Tiny wouldn't stay still...
