Pretty as a picture

While surfing the glorious web the other day, I came across this gorgeous site. Such stunning photography and what a fantastic way to make a living! Ah, I'm jealous! It makes me want to give up my day job and instead take pictures of pooches, kitties, rabbits and hedgehogs. (Yes, I think hedgehogs are great!)

Anyway, yesterday I didn't have to go into the office and was lucky enough to have the day to myself. Bliss! I took advantage of the warm afternoon and spent it in the garden with my cat and a camera. Sure, it sounds a little arb, but what a great way to spend a couple of hours. So incredibly relaxing! I took an obscene amount of photos (yay digital photography!!!) and after sifting through them later, I found a few that I was quite chuffed with. Nowhere near as good as the ones at the Cowbelly blog but not too bad for an amateur with a moggy cat. There's still much Photoshopping to be done, but here are some of my faves in the meantime...

I think my cat is gorgeous. But then again, I may be biased.

You're probably thinking that I'm one crazeeeeee cat lady in the making, but don't give up on me yet. I'm dying to photograph some pooches and I've already made a mental list of friends who have dogs. ;)

While on the subject of animal photography, the other week my gal pal Des and I headed off to the 2008 National Geographic Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. Stunning, stunning, stunning!!! The showcased photographers come from all over the world and needless to say, their photography was really awesome. Here are some of my favourites from my exhibition:

(If I remember correctly, the above pic by Steve Winter won the overall prize.)

I much prefer your photos to the "award-winning" ones. Kitties are MUCH better than non-fluffy things. Especially snakes. *gets the willies*

I love what you did with the black and white shot.

Hey Slyde - thanks! :)

And Criss, I have to agree with you on the snake thing!

Thanks guys!

Nice pics love them :-)
Can you come and take some pics of my kitties and make them look so stunning.
Maybe she is she just a "superkitty".

Fluffy Pink Thing said...

Sure! I'll swing by with my camera and some bottles of trusty ol' red.

(Just to confirm, the wine's for us, not your kitties!)

*"Some bottles" of red?! I like a girl who is not afraid to go big!

Well Anon, go large or go home (sober)! :)
