Ben and His Shadow


I've posted photos of all of our furry kids except Ben and Smitty. They kept running to me every time I would try to take their picture. I finally caught Ben sitting still with no desire to run toward me. Please note that he's sitting with one of his hind legs between his front legs. (He didn't want you to think that was his tummy.) Now the camera and I are after Smitty. Here kitty, kitty, kitty.

Ben looks like he is sitting a tad awkwardly! LOL But a gorgeous shot indeed, Candy! Now where is that Smitty kitty?

I have a very handsome nephew!

Ben appreciates the compliments. He's not just another pretty face, he's very sweet, too!

That huge shadow and then the dog staring at the photographer, really posing and enjoying himself. Excellent photo!

Sorry, I meant to write cat. My dog is begging me to take him out, so I wrote dog. But only a cat can look like that.

Thanks, Celeste. I posted it for the exact reason you mentioned. I loved the way the shadow looked. I was surprised that Ben just sat there without running toward me and out of the frame, or away from me and out of the frame.

Your dog sounds like our dogs. Their favorite thing is to go for a walk with us.

Ben is clever, he knew he was being photographed. Dogs dont care, they just want their ball or a stick....

That is a wonderful photo! Great shadow and light and your kitty is very handsome too!

Candy said...

Tj, Ben and I both thank you!

Thank you for your lovely comment. We spoke in Portuguese and French. Jeanne does not speak Portuguese, and Sofia and Duarte's French is not very strong. Everyone else spoke French fluently, so we had to go back and forth between the two languages.

Very cute!!! It's so funny the way cats avoid the camera...except for Rudy! He loves the camera and is a great model!
