Pet Portrait: Cleo the Cat

I love to photograph cats. It can take a tremendous amount of patience, but most often just requires a desire to get to know the cat before getting out the camera.

Cleo loves her cat tree; she spends the majority of her sleeping and awake hours in the security and comfort of its carpet-padded shelves. It was the perfect place to photograph and interact with her. I think the shallow depth of field works well here to draw the viewer into Cleo’s eyes.

As an aside, I would like to extend a special greeting to my readers in beautiful and diverse Australia. Blog statistics show that I have recently gained a steady following of readers from Down Under and I think that’s cool. This isn’t to overlook the steady traffic coming from India, the UK and other lands distant to Central Florida, but as the jump in Australian readers has been fairly recent and significant, it presents the opportunity to welcome those visiting from a place I dream of seeing and photographing one day.
