Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

I am not a photographer by any stretch of imagination. I do like to challenge myself sometimes. So I decided to see if I could come up with something for this weeks Photo Challenge: Focus.

My pets are like my children. I’m sure most pet owners can identify with that statement. I’m always taking pictures of them when they sit still long enough. Not too long ago I took some of Sam and one of my cats Pouncer. They were both vying for the same spot of sunshine.

The first picture is of the two of them. I really didn’t focus on anything, just trying to get a picture of them both wanting the same thing.

Then I took another shot of Sam basking in the lions share of sunshine.

I loved how the sunshine shown on Sam and made me think of a black/white picture. So I took another shot focusing on just Sam and how the light played with his coloring of black/white. I thought it turned out pretty good and is my favorite shot of my little guy.

I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

    1. Thank you! I’ve always had cats and dogs together. If you start with kittens the dogs accept them better or if they grow up together it’s even better. I’ve never had any problems really.


    1. Well tell Bumble I can send him one! 😉 Thanks tiny, yes I suppose you are right! They are focused on the sun. Those two are always vying for the sun spots.


  1. I’ve nominated you for some awards. You inspire me to be a better blogger. If your blog is an Award Free Blog, please accept my well-meaning thoughts and appreciation for the great job that you do. Thanks!
