You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide

Our cat, Carmen, is afraid of the vacuum cleaner. As soon as I turn it on she runs like the wind to find a place to hide, usually under a bed, until she thinks it’s safe to venture out again.

Lucky for me, she found a new hiding place this week when I was running the vacuum because when I finished my cleaning chores, I noticed I had an email from a friend who had some tips for me to try to make my pictures look better on my blog. One of the tips she shared was to not stand over my subject, but to get down on the floor if necessary (easier said than done believe me) to capture all the details of the subject of the picture…The suggestion also stated that I should try this tip out on our cat if she would tolerate it.

So, I went on a hunting trip throughout our house to find Carmen, who thought she had found safety between the wall and dresser in my daughter, Shantel’s, room. I had to act quickly and get down on my belly (again, easier said than done) and pretend like I wasn’t looking at Carmen until I was ready to take the picture or she would have run away if she thought I was going to flash a camera in her face again.

I captured the shot and sent it to my friend who shared the tip with me and she requested I show it on my blog so, here is the result of my lesson:

I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Don’t you?

The hardest part of trying this photo tip was getting back up off the floor after I captured the great shot:)

Stay tuned!
