Lovely Tongue

“Cat got your tongue? And what a lovely tongue it is. I know. It licked every inch of me. Repeatedly.”

I WOULD BE GRATEFUL for your vote in the 2013 COOL PHOTOBLOG AWARDS. There’s nothing to fill out, no gimmicks, no requests for your email address – just a simple click and you’re done. THANK YOU for your support! I have no delusions of winning anything, but getting my numbers up will help others find “I Shutter at the Thought!”.

You can now follow me on Instagram at @EarlHarrisPhoto, where I am posting photos captured and edited solely on my iPhone. Come follow me! We’ll get lost together.

Perhaps It’s Not Your Most Flattering Look

One of the things I really love about photographing cats is their unpredictability. They can go from nervous to calm faster than your top flash sync speed, but more often it’s the other direction they’re traveling. Cats – at least house cats, anyway – tend to flick their tongues in and out quite a bit when they are nervous. Often it is this action that lets me know I need to spend more time with the animal, ensuring we are comfortable together so I can get the shot I want.

As a result of my volunteer work photographing cats for the Humane Society of Utah, I have dozens of photos of cats with their tongues sticking out. I’m thinking that one day I’ll create a rather large collage out of them.
