Quarterly Top Five: Kitty Paw!
Once again, I am joining Amber of Amber’s Articles, Courtney of Click It Up A Notch, Sarah of Nap Time Momtog for the Quarterly Top Five. The idea being that you choose your Top 5 favorite photos (from July, August, September 2011) and post them with a short explanation of why you chose each photo. Since I don’t have any human babies yet, I’ve selected my favorite photos of Kitty Paw taken over the past three months.
Napping in the Sun
July 2011
I took the above shot in July. Kitty Paw really love summer because the house is full of sun spots. On any given day, you can catch her taking a nap in the sun.
On the Floor RS
July 2011
This shot was also taken in July (towards the end of the month). Again…another sun spot, but this time I caught her in mid-yawn. I don’t know why I love taking photos of Kitty Paw with her mouth wide open. I guess it makes me laugh.
Roll Over RS
August 2011
It’s funny how animals know when you’ve got your camera out. Kitty Paw can be quite the ham. I remember coming home from work and not being greeted at the door, so I went upstairs to see where she might be hiding (camera in hand). As soon as she saw the camera, she rolled around on the floor…her eyes constantly looking back at me.
Waiting RS
August 2011
Another pretty typical moment…if it’s sunny outside, we’ll typically leave the front door open. Kitty Paw loves to sit at the front door and watch whatever is going on outside.
Kitty Paw Polaroid RS      Vintage Camera Kitty Paw
So…I’m including six instead of five – shoot me. The image on the left was taken in July. The image on the right was taken in September. If I remember correctly, Katie Lloyd created a PSE compatible vintage polaroid/instagram effect: click HERE. I was so excited about it, that I created the Debonair action with Katie’s steps. The image on the left was used to test it out. I still love it!

On the left, I was experimenting with a technique called TTV photography (through the viewfinder). Inspired by Nancy at A Rural Journal‘s recent post about TTV photography, I pulled out my vintage Brownie Reflex and my macro lens and took this photo of Kitty Paw. It has such an interesting effect to it…definitely worth trying again.
