Sunday Stills: Portraits

The challenge this week was to take a portrait.  Ok.

I tried..and I mean tried to capture my Granddaughters cat. This is my best shot.

This morning I attempted a photo of Chance..sometimes he is just a pain, he yawns and blinks his eyes.

Yes we have snow has spit snow all week..I think winter might be here.  Have a good week everyone:)


  1. Great shots. Chance is a beautiful dog. :)

    I hope the snow stays up your way!
    We are going to East Central Illinois for Thanksgiving, and I hope it doesn't snow there either!!

  2. you did a great job. The cat is besutiful, love Chance's coloring. I'm not ready for snow. It was a cold 20 here this am.

  3. Yay, I was hoping to see Chance, he's such a beautiful boy. Well done!

  4. I really like Chance's facial markings! One of my dogs, he's really good at looking the other way and completely ignoring me, no matter how many funny noises I make trying to get him to looking my direction.

  5. That's a beautiful shot of Chance in your header, it almost tells a story...

    Great kitty shot, he/she looks rather put out, very cat-ish.

  6. Pretty kitty and as always, the ever handsome CHANCE!

  7. That cat....looks like he is about to eat something....hope he wasn't contemplating stalking you for a little snack, lol!

    Love the Chance shot....he is the perfect subject.

  8. your dog is the most famous dog in New Zealand.

  9. I really like them both. Chance is the great model when he is sitting still.

  10. I tried to get a good shot of a couple of the felines but they were starved for attention and wouldn't stay back far enough. Kit won't even look at the camera.....she'll just duck her head and leave.....sort of like I do.

  11. Great shots, the one of Chance would look great in Black and White..:-)

  12. These are great portrait captures for the challenge. The first of the cat seems to have such an element of surprise and the lighting of Chance is amazing. : )

  13. poor chance... he's shy about his photo being taken! seriously, the yawning and eye blinks are his coping mechanism. I feel his pain. nothing worse than being in FRONT of the camera for me... sigh...

    but boy he sure is gorgeous.
