Self Portriat with Whiskers

{eh-hm. Whiskers the CAT, that is...}
If you know me, you know I love my kitty cats.
I'm not a crazy old cat lady {yet} with 50+ cats...
I'm easing into that with the two that live with us now.


So, I went and enrolled myself in an online photography class with Cheryl Johnson and our first assignment was to take a self portrait. I set my camera on my tripod and was back and forth checking the shots when my cat, Whiskers jumped up on the table behind me. This is the last of many shots I took, but one where my smile was the most genuine.

Isn't is awesome how pets can bring out the best in us?

That's a gorgeous shot and I love Whiskars got in on the act as well. I did a CJ online photography course a few years ago and very much enjoyed it ... and learnt lots!

What a great shot. I tried to enroll in that class but couldn't without a paypal account (I had a huge problem with paypal once and now can't get an account), so I'm officially jealous!
And whiskers is hilarious. When I was doing the still life of Henry's athletic letter the other day, one of the best ended up with Gypsy in the background in a very similar way - LOL!

I love the uninvited guest appearance in the back of your self portrait - so funny! Bet you had fun running back and forth with that self timer.
