So having played around for the last week with the larger SZ-12 camera I find I have to relearn the tricks to using the old Stylus. Figures. But it is clear that the flash is a lot easier to handle due to its modest power.
I don’t really know why she looks so startled here. Almost every shot has a different face in it, as if she was mugging for the camera.
Calla does not approve of the implication that she would do any such thing.
This is one of the SZ shots from Sunday. I like it, but the flash even in the day has ‘bleached’ some of the lighter browns.
I ordered some cat cleaning wipes and some ‘no water’ cleaner to see if I can make up for Gus’ grooming issues somewhat. I used a couple on him today and he was pretty annoyed at the process, but otherwise unharmed. It did seem to cut down on the spikey clumps that were sticking together a bit. There’s still some mats here and there that will have to be cut out, and it would be good if I could get an overall shorter length from the ribs back. From the last time if the hair is shorter, it doesn’t get matted.
But the ‘shortening’ combs don’t work well if the run into a mat, so that chopping out close mats has to be first. And this will make him look a bit patchy. Already one hip is cut very close in spots. You can see a pink spot on one knee that was a clump I got with bandage scissors a few days ago. And there’s only so much he will put up with in one session.
