Take My Picture by Lilyas Take My Picture by Lilyas
My cat loves having his photo taken!!! :love: I went into the garden to make some pictures of the Azaleas that are in full flower right now. And what is he doing? He is coming after me to place himself right into my way. So as if he is begging "Take my picture, take my picture, please, please!!!". :giggle: Yeah, and he is posing for me all the time and very patiently. I can take many "still life" shots of him without moving myself around too much. He is so adorable and beautiful! :heart:

Now this photo is hardly edited, you can see Ben as he really looks. Because some people asked me "Is his nose really that white?" on Ben's photo The Look. No, it isn't that white, I desaturated the picture to almost greyscale except his eyes which removed the soft pink from his cute nose. ;). Also I removed the little natural black spot on the right side of the nose because it was distracting in this close-up shot.

Made with Canon EOS 30D.

Your cat is quite photogenic. I think this would make an adorable spring postcard!

Sweet cat! As if he's posing for you with the explicit intention to show you sanft und verträumt. Mein Kater guckt nie so.... aber vielleicht würde der auch besser mit schwarzen Blumen wirken, die Gänseblümchen passen nämlich voll gut zum Katzenfell. Wie immer diese Rosenbilder früher...
