Just Like Herding Cats (Day 307)
First (and perhaps last) attempt at this year’s Christmas card…
Do you know how absolutely friggin’ impossible is it to get two cats with Santa hats to hold still for a photograph? This was the most in-focus shot of the bunch, and by bunch, I mean three. My first error was not setting up the camera before strapping on the hats; an aperture of 1.4 is just not appropriate for fast (and erratic) moving objects.
This “peaceful” scene quickly turned into a full-blown game of Rodeo Cat, where I struggled to catch Cooper and Hudson to retrieve their hats, while they frantically raced around the house trying to remove them.
Guess I should have waited for Rita’s help on this one; I fear they will now and forever run at the site of anything Santa.
