After being out at our building lot today, it looks like a perfect place to have a dog.  We don’t have a dog (as of yet), but we do have Oliver.  Not so much a country kitty… A dog would love it there.  I know my brother‘s dog would…

Although, both Oliver and Buddy are getting quite old.  My vote is for a Wheaten Terrier after… well, … you know.


ISO 2500

Playing around with higher than “normal” ISO… here’s a shot of our cat, Oliver.  The first shot is unprocessed at ISO 2500.  The second shot is one that went through post.  The quality of the ISO 2500 is quite impressive.


Oliver - no post processing

I’m not 100% pleased with the eyes, but I think I can work on them a bit more later… always fun to practice Photoshop!

Happy Ground Hog Day

So, that large rodent said we’re going to be getting for spring soon. I don’t believe it. I also don’t believe the number of people who show up for “the event”. Adults. Adults that believe this rodent. It’s really ridiculous. There is no purpose to it… at least with Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and the Lucky Charms leprechaun you have the potential they’ll give you something when you believe in them! I can get on board with those guys. Enough of the ranting… here’s another rodent… definitely better looking than “Phil”.
