The last time we were in Holland we spent a few nights at friends with cats. It’s funny how cats always seem to notice that you know how to handle them, or that you have (had) cats (before) yourself. These two are also a couple of funky little creatures, with their own little attitudes 😀

Did I ever mention I luuuuuuuuuuv my 50mm f/1.4? Love the depth of field, love the bokeh, love its sharpness… If you don’t have a 50mm prime like that, go get one. Now!!

So I did a couple of those, here and there. You saw a few posts ago the ones I did in Portland, and quite a while back the ones of our own cats. And they keep on being a source of inspiration.
They’re a pair of silly, and curious beings, that surprise you all the time with the funkiest stuff, or the weirdest positions, or whatever… One of their favorite spots is on the light on the aquarium, because it’s warm and nice, and they just squeeze up behind a flower pot which is standing there. And when we’re sitting at the dining table having breakfast, you get these kinds of peek-a-boo moments when they hear or smell something…
