Photographing someone else’s pets in- or outside really isn’t easy…
Meet Kaneel (Cinnamon) the cat…
Dog Taco, unlike Kaneel, I found really difficult to photograph; constantly moving (and fast), black fur (on a white background), … I tried bracketing (with the black-white contrast in mind), continuous shooting, exposure compensation (for the black fur) continuous focus, … in A-mode. Still it seems I didn’t manage a good shot where Taco looks “natural”.
While outside I also made a backlit scene in the snow.
During the night of January 20th I met a beautiful woman on the church square of Massemen (Belgium)…
A week or two ago I made this picture. And something is troubling me about it…
It shows what I saw – the colored sky, the silhouette of the trees and the running rainwater in the mud – but somehow the photograph doesn’t move me like the scenery did.
What can I do to make something like this work?
One moment you’re checking your messages, the next you hear loud twittering… You look up and see your female budgerigar, Kiki, and male cockatiel, Jules, fighting over the new sepia shell.
I think I should watch the birds more often with my camera ready; it might result in a surprising picture.
Best wishes for 2015; I really hope it will be a year in which your dreams become tangible.
My good resolution for this year (concerning this blog): create at least one new post each month with (a) photograph(s).

A picture of me in my New Year’s outfit; my grandmother made me a most happy “girl” that day by adding her fur scarf to it and making the scarf a gift. Did I already mention I love retro/vintage clothing? 😉
