I am addicted 😉 . To photographing him. I hope you’ll forgive me. It does make a decent record of his early years at least. He looks like a little person in the photo! I am anthropomorphizing him.
I think he is super cute in this photo. I have used an additional light source to that I can capture more fleeting moments (higher shutter speed). Also, in winter there is not much light inside the home in good old Blighty (old fashioned slang for Britain or England – England is not Britain).
Gabriel was standing up to one of the scratching posts on the upper tier of the cat tree playing and I called out to him so that he looked towards the camera. There is a little bit of judicious editing to improve the image a bit – I hope. Photo editing should be done with a light touch in my view otherwise it spoils the picture. It can become too become visible and dominant.
These images of Gabriel are embedded from Flickr to provide the maximum quality.
At the moment I don’t need a cat tease to get his attention. I just make a noise and he normally looks towards the noise.
