Charlie – Up Close and Personal!

I have another two-fer this time.

The second Mondayย on Sally’s Lens and Pens Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge the topic is MACRO!

It’s Week #53 on Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge! I missed Michelle’s one-year anniversary for this challenge last week so I’m sending her my congratulations now!

  1. ohlala, that is such a cool photo, clearly Charlie has a philosophical moment…

  2. Linda, the portrait is so telling, especially the way he is concentrating and the slight reflections in his eye. Very nice details. Happy Photo Challenge. (for some reason I did not get a Pingback.)

    Excellent macro, Linda. Something about cat close-up portraits that always work so well in pictures.

    That’s probably what our new rather wild, stray kitten would look like.

    Gull durn it. Wish I could figure out if my macro thingy works and if it does, how to use it. Great shot.

    • Then you have a cute kitten, Pam! Are you using a phone camera? I use my iPhone5. I don’t have any particular settings and I don’t use the lens attachments you can buy for the iPhones.

        I was wanting just one kitten. Instead, I am now fostering a ten year old, feisty, adorable cat. The day after I was guilted into fostering her (till its mom, a teenager finished her education), a rather starved kitten (probably three months or less old) found our back porch. Considering I live in the country, that fact that the kitten survived long enough to find us was amazing. Of course, we fed him. It’s just a surprise that he wasn’t carried away by an owl or found by the dogs and coyotes. Now to tame him down enough to bring him in our garage when winter hits. Sigh.

        • Ah, yes, that’s just how it begins! I had never owned a cat in my life then, in 2002, I told a friend I would bottle-feed three kittens to help her out because she was a vet tech with her own animals and two other litters. By the end of three weeks of bottle-feeding kittens, I was hooked. They were mine. Or, rather, I was theirs! Then hubby started feeling sorry a couple years later for some feral cats in the neighborhood. And we just sort of started getting them fixed and bringing them in. We’re now down to seven cats inside and 3-5 eating and sleeping in the garage. Sigh…. No telling where it would have ended but since we’re no longer working and on a fixed income, it’s sort of a done deal. We’ll take care of what we have but we can’t bring in anymore. Good luck to you! ๐Ÿ˜†

        Linda, you and your hubby scare me. Hope you experience doesn’t rub off on us.

    The cat macro is wonderful. He looks like he’s contemplating something.

  12. Paula says:

    That macro looks like a big plush toy. I am not a great friend of cats, but I will admit when I see a good portrait – and this one is a good one. Those whiskers are amazing – for an instant I thought it was a fork ๐Ÿ˜€ (excuse my dark sense of humour)

  13. Amy says:

    Lovely macro shot through your smart phone, incredible!

  14. DG MARYOGA says:

    OM ! What a super macro portrait,dear Linda ! Charlie is so lovable and cute ; I love his ginger colour and his rather pensive look ! Give him a big hug for me and have a great day along with him !!! Love and hugs โ™ฅ(ห†โŒฃห†ิ…) ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, Doda! He is quite the handsome kitty! I will try to give him a hug for you but of all my cats, he is the one who just does not like to be picked up! He will (on his terms) allow me a hug or two, now and again! ๐Ÿ˜†

  15. He looks so solemn and handsome. Such a pretty kitty!
