Wiley the cat is from Wales. He might speak funny but he’s nice. Anyway, the click of my shutter scared the hell out of him and he took off exactly a half a second after this shot was taken.
I can count on one hand the number of photographs I’ve taken of animals, human or otherwise. I find they’re a little overdone — I mean, how many millions of cat photos are there in the world — and I’m just not very good at portraits. Every once in a while though there’s an opportunity to take a shot that’s maybe a little different. I’m not sure this one totally qualifies, but I like it.
