As I've noted before, I'm far from a professional photographer, but I love this new camera. I'm slowly learning how to adjust these things called white balance and exposure, in order to take acceptable photos in any lighting. I'm still far from an expert, but I'm starting to get the hang of it...

|Thimble just loves to help her mommy experiment with perspective and angles..."Is this my good side, Mom?"|
|And here's housemate Toby. This boy and his black fur will be the death of the photographer inside of me.|
Our selfies aren't done there, though! I was perhaps most excited to go visit my parents' kitties with my new flashy box in hand. This is because I often visit my parents and their kitties in the evening, which means that photo shoots with them tend to be after sundown. With my older, overworked camera, lack of natural sunlight typically always meant less than successful results. However, after getting my new camera, I headed over to my parents' house for an evening visit with their furbabies, and managed to snap shots of all four of their furbabies with not too terrible of results. Keeping in mind that my less than technologically inclined mind is still trying to grasp the full concept of white balance, exposure, and all those fun things, here are some long overdue selfies of the other furbabies in my life:
|Here's Thimble's giant-sized twin brother, Trapper.|
|Another of Thimble's brothers, Talon, is Mr. Active and gave me just this one barely successful selfie.|
|Pretty tabby/tortie Freya so kindly posed in front of one of my dad's awesome fish tanks. But, she preferred a closed-eye selfie.|
|Freya's sister Gemma, a pretty calico, is not a big fan of the camera. Can you tell?|
And so there you have it. Nine selfies. Whew. Thanks, sis, for the new toy that made this possible!
A very happy Sunday to all of our furiends!
Our Tip of the Day:I've given tips on keeping a pet-friendy kitchen, bathroom, and study. Now, today, how about a couple of tips to ensure that your bedroom is pet-friendly? If you keep your shoes in your bedroom, keep them hidden away so as to keep your dogs, or even your cats, from chewing on them and getting themselves in trouble or in danger of intestinal blockage. The same would of course go for socks and any other potentially tempting items of clothing. Also be sure to keep small hair accessories and jewelry in a hidden location, so that curious paws and mouths can't play with or ingest them. Safety first!
