This our cat, Miss Kitty. She was so relaxed that she actually put up with me as I setup a couple of photo lamps to get a better picture of her. I mounted a macro lens on the camera and looked straight into her eyes. She is a very sweet creature and a wonderful furry friend.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 10D camera through a Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro prime lens at .3 sec @ f/2.5 with no flash. The camera’s ISO was set to 200. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    She looks so soft. And she has a look that says, “I’ll let you do this because I love you.”

  • You are sooooo right! That is exactly what I saw too!

    Thank you,

    Miss Kitty is beautiful. I own a black cat named Binkypoo.

  • Thank you Wanda. She is just as friendly as can be, too. I’ll have to look to see if you have any photos of your Binkypoo posted.

    what a lovely sweet girl Miss Kitty is .. and so incredibly patient too.

  • She was very patient on this particular day, but it was an unusual occasion for her. As Nancy said above, she was thinking “I’ll let you do this because I love you.” That was so true!

    Thank you,
