Photo: Portrait of a Cat: Calvin

Portrait of a cat: Calvin


Most days I take dozens of photos. Most are worthless. Some are good. And every once in a while, I snap a picture and know instantly that it’s a keeper.

I love this portrait of Calvin. Not every cat will look directly at a person, but Calvin will stare at me with such intensity that I almost feel I have to turn away. Almost. Instead, I’ll look deep into his eyes, hold his gaze for a  moment, and then blink slowly and turn away.

I know in cat language that staring too long can be rude, disrespectful or downright threatening.

But now that I caught his gaze in a photo, I can look as long as I want at this portrait of a my cat, Calvin. This will be one I print out and frame.

Do you take a lot of pictures of your pets? How do you know when you have a really good one? What do you do with the ones you like best? Post them on social media? Frame them and put them around your home?

    That is a keeper. I take a ton of pictures and can usually tell a good one, but sometimes when looking through them I find an angle or section that I didn’t notice that turns out just great.

  4. It is a beautiful picture. I have the same issue with pictures, I take 100s to get one I love!
