This is Chloe’s delightful (dearly departed) Hammy Minnie (she sleeps in the lounge – in her cage of course! at night as she has the tendancy to eat the bars of the cage and generally do whatever it is that Hamsters do – not good when you have to rise at 5.30am though!) so now we get her clonking through our films and programmes but it’s worth it – she and Ollie have come to a recent understanding – he looks at her and she at him! Now just before we retire we pop a little treat in her house – at the moment it’s banana chips! Here she is waiting to see if anything will come out of the camera – I swear she is smiling! Chloe has yet to see this shot so this will be a nice surprise for her I think!
Hope she makes you smile :)

my first shot of Minnie!

I would prefer for the bowls not to be in the shot but to crop them out would mean losing so much of the photo – it’s reality shooting :)

Taken with the Canon 400d with the Canon 50mm lens – no flash fired taken in the Tungsten light mode – slightly sharpened and noise removed in Paintshop due to the plastic of the cage!

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.
