Oddball Hour

Calpurnia seems to be over her sneezing or coughing fits today so she was interested in going outside for a look around.  I like her tail standing up like a flag as she comes forward.  I take the picture and for some odd reason the camera decides that focusing on the cat in the center or the cat in the back isn’t ‘artistic’ enough and decides to take a clear shot of the pine needle on the ground on the left.   I saw the little green square jump to it and everything.

I guess you can think of it as ‘soft focus’ like those aging actresses get on TV shows.  A minute or so later Calla oddly came scampering back and went inside. There wasn’t anything scary around that I could see or hear.


So it was out back again, where it was apparently time for Calla to go vegan.  She doesn’t do this all the time like Julie, who will eat a big hank of grass and vomit messily somewhere, often inside.  She also doesn’t eat them, but just licks and bites the leaves.

After that I did a little camera strap luring which resulted in the picture above.  Calla is saying “I can play this game with one hand and half an eye, dude”.  I have to raise my game. Is there a place for camera strap cat luring training sessions?

    I also like Gus’ shadow looking like a little kitty snowman in front of him.

    I like the first shot. Is it ‘soft focus’ or just all that fuzz?

      The auto-focus logic on the camera picked a spot between the two cats to make sharp. If you examine the full size pic you can see that both cats are a teensy bit blurred – look at the eyes

      However a lot of the effect is backlight from the sun through the fuzz

      Actually, there is a ‘beauty’ setting that does – well I don’t know what it does, because it only works on people. Maybe it does some kind of soft focus thingy.,
