I don’t often shoot with my cellphone, because I have lots of dedicated photo gear.
But today I went through the photo folder on my Samsung A5, and transferred them all over to my computer. There were more than I expected, around 150.
Lots of shots of our late Choco the Cat in there, and accumulating some of new kitty Sora.
Here are some shots of Sora waking up from her afternoon nap. I kinda like the low-light, grainy, moodiness of the cell cam. . .
Yes, that’s a kitty face wondering if Daddy was awake in the wee hours of the morning.
It was a lovely afternoon for exploring Barnet Marine Park in north Burnaby, BC. I try to get up there a few times a year. It was fairly busy just before the end of summer and the start of school, so not as many birds around.
Drummond’s Walk, named after the late Doug Drummond, a Burnaby mayor who “shared the dream that many citizens had expressed to him about public access and trails on Burnaby’s waterfront.. . . for all to enjoy.”
Hard to believe he died 17 years ago, I remember attending his funeral.
I spent a couple of hours shooting photos around the Historic Stewart Farm in south Surrey, BC, this afternoon.
“Dey know, the fluffy buggers, I can’t get ’em. But I still duz my best to rattle the window!”
We’re indoor cat people, partly because we live on a ravine and outdoor cats disappear fast around here with the coyotes around, and also because even well-fed cats cannot resist killing birds.
Cats can be very happy indoors, but it takes a lot of play time and interaction.
But that’s why we love ’em to begin with, eh?
Our last cat, Choco, was nervous outdoors, and would only go out supervised in a harness to chew on some grass, sticking very close to home.
New rescue kitty Sora has not been introduced to the harness yet, that’s still a bit down the road.
When we came back from our Byrne Creek ravine walk in SE Burnaby, BC, late this afternoon, we spotted a female Black-Throated Gray Warbler and some hummers hanging about.
A little over three weeks since we adopted Sora-chan from the SPCA, she’s getting pretty comfy around the place. Her initial fear has completely worn off, though she still startles occasionally.
Over the last few days she’s appropriated my recliner in the living room, and has also discovered that it’s great fun licking my nose and chewing my mustache at 4:00 am.
She is incredibly energetic, and loves chasing a feather on a string. . . for hours. . .
While people often say it would be wonderful if cats remained kittens all their lives, and dogs remained puppies, this is one teenager that I’m looking forward to gaining some maturity : – ).
Stopped at Porteau Cove on the way home from a one-night camping trip. This favourite stop on the Sea to Sky featured nearly indistinguishable colors, sea to sky : – ).
Zipped up the Sea to Sky yesterday for a one-night camping trip at Nairn Falls Provincial Park.
Realized that we’ve had this trusty axe for 20 years. It’s a midsize, great for car camping, tho occasionally I’d like something with about a pound heavier head and foot longer handle.
I try to get out to Iona Beach Regional Park a few times a year.
We’ve come a long way over the last several weeks since we fell in love at the SPCA, Sora-chan. Or at least when your new humans fell in love with you.
Thanks for the cuddle a few minutes ago. . . Goodnight.
