I was playing around with the features of the new camera to get close up…this is using the optical zoom with Julie partway across the room.

The camera also has a macro mode to focus on close things.  You can combine this with the optical zoom.  This is pretty much straight down to my feet.


A bit later on when I was on the other side of the room I saw Gus flopped back by my chair.  Love the curled tail and foot up in the air.

  1. Wait a minute wait a minute…. Is that one foot up in the air?? I could be wrong, but I swear… isn’t that both feet, crossed??? Oh my gosh! Far too cute!! And the close up of Gus’ profile!! I hate to do it, but SQUEEEE! You can see the black that gives the optical illusion that he has an upturned nose!
    And Julie! What a zoom, you can see each individual hair! Wow! Gosh, he’s so cute! He has freckles on his nose! (or dirt, but I’m thinking freckles!)


  2. That’s a mighty impressive zoom and some awesome photographs.

    Nice shot of Gus. I love that spot on cats’ noses where the fur changes direction. You nailed it in Julie’s pic.
