Sometimes it just works...

I have a new camera, and I've been terribly lax in posting new images. It's amazing going from a point & shoot digital to a shiny, new DSLR, but there's a pretty steep learning curve in the beginning. Luckily, I have quite a few subjects on which to practice. This past weekend, I spent some time chasing the cats around my friend's house. I was focused on one cat when I felt a whisker tickle my arm from behind. I swung the camera over my shoulder, and snapped a picture on the fly. I love the result - a cat candid without any the benefit of the viewfinder or LCD screen - and it worked wonderfully. As my friend said, having a great model helps, too.
