Summer's got Secrets by micklyn


Small (16.4" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

This is number 16 in my 52 week challenge.

This is Mila (nearly 6) and Somerset Rose (Summer for short.) I thought long and hard about uploading this one, as I think it is not a very good photograph, technically speaking. And Summer is so supernaturally furry that she doesn’t really look much like a cat at all… more like a hairy, squishy, unidentifiable soft toy. But hey, I need to do my weekly photo challenge, and I suppose it is inevitable that some weeks will go better than others.

Camera Model Canon EOS 600D
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/400
Av( Aperture Value ) 2.0
ISO Speed 100
Lens EF50mm f/1.8 II

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Dear Micklyn, If you could find a minute to send this image to Art Universe you would make a host happy ☺

  • Dear Kira – I have submitted this work, though I really didn’t think it was good enough for Art Universe… I have a very high opinion of that group, didn’t think this one was up to standard. : ) xx

    I hear you, and normally I would agree, but there are more than one criteria for me… this one gets credit for mood and ambiance ☺

    That is the cutest cat in the world! And that one there looks like you, Ma. :) Such a sweet shot.

  • D’ya think? I think she is starting to, although she looked nothing like me as a baby! Thank you so much for your comment, Birgitta!!

    Beautiful and touching capture that tugs at the heart. It looks like the kitty is whispering in Mila’s ear what he knows the dogs have been doing!

  • Thanks, Seth! I think Summer is probably complaining to Mila about little Levi and his sticky hands …
