Welcome to week 25 of our 52 Week Pet Photography Blog Circle. This weeks’ topic is “Selfies”!
What is a “selfie”? It is defined as: “An image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks”. Selfies are big on Facebook and Instagram. I admit, I can count on one hand how often I’ve taken one of myself – it’s a rare occurrence! There are many people who do this on a daily basis…. and several times a day – haha!
I though it would be a good week to introduce some adoptable cats that I photographed this week. My neighbor recently opened a new cat rescue located in Seabrook, NH called Cat Tales. She asked if I’d like to photograph the cats looking for homes. I visited the rescue for the first time this past Monday. She has done an amazing job! They have about 8 rooms and she has the rooms painted in fun, bright colors – great for photographs!
I asked the cats if they would like to do some “selfies” for my blog post this week. They were a bit shy and asked for my help. So i’d like to introduce you to some of the available cats and our version of “selfies” this week!
Do you have a favorite? Thanks for stopping by!
Next up in our blog circle click on the link to check out some more selfies from Kim with BARKography based in Charlotte NC on location in San Francisco. Have a great weekend!
I love reading your posts because I’m from NH so little mentions of places make me say “Oh, I know where that is!”. Lovely job with these cats!
Thanks, Tracy! Where in NH are you from? Love it!
Lovely job – I perhaps took the “selfies” very literal and knew I wouldn’t do that – so skipped this week. I am generally not a fan of the looking down on a cat (or dog), but in this case, I actually like the first photo the best 🙂
Thanks, Linda! I”m not one to ever take selfies so I had to come up with a new interpretation 🙂
The “selfies” are great. The cat’s eyes really bring out their facial expressions. Love Nina’s colors.
Thank you! Beautiful cats! Nina has gorgeous coloring!
I love your background in that the first one.
Thanks! What a great floor for a backdrop!!!
Kota says “Will” is cool! Like him. Nice pics
Thanks, Pete! Should I bring him home? Haha!
Cats are always the best at selfies. This could be a fun theme for a rescue shoot as well. Love the striped kitty.
Thank you so much, Elaine! Cats are new to me – having fun!
