After the rain

After the rain
I took photos after today’s rain.

On the garage roof
And she was watching

Come and see more

I’m trying to get used to LJ scrapbook because I don’t want to spoil my Flickr gallery with photographs. But I find it a bit difficult and complicated when compared to Flickr.

  1. i love to see photos from other parts of the world. To me it’s not so much about the artistic ” quality” of the photo, but about absorbing a different energy and sensing a foreign environment.
    We had a cat just like yours here on the pics. His name was Tomtom, but since we have most of our cats indoors, he couldn’t stay. He was just too big and too wild and too strong to be an indoor cat and started to get angry and upset because of it. He is living as a barn cat on a huge farm now and he is much happier there.

    1. Hi Claire, thanks very much for stopping by :) I’m totally new to photography, sometimes I don’t know what on earth I’m doing with my camera ;-)
      What you said about your Tomtom suits very much to this one too. She lives on the roof/or on the ceiling most of the time. Not a “family” cat at all. She’s not our own cat btw. She’s “owned” by the whole neighbourhood.

      1. i’m using my camera very intuitively and i’m self-taught. What i found comparing painting and photograpy is that in photography it’s quite often very effective to place the main object off-center and have lots of negative-empty space. Your environment is so visually rich that it’s hard to take good photos, because there is a visual overload quite easily.
        As a painter you might enjoy taking blurry pictures, because they have more of the painterly qualities. I use what is called a ” toy lens”. The name of this lens is “lensbaby”. It’s not ” static” but basically sits loose and moveable on the camera and the result is not really predictable. I love to work with the lensbaby, but more “real” photographers go nuts when they look at lensbaby pictures, because they are not ‘sharp’.

        That’s very interesting, and true! I’ve never heard of toy lens/babylens. Is it possible to use it with any camera? Btw, you do all sorts of wonders with your photos. I just love what you create.
        Yes I enjoy blurry effects. But sometimes I wish I could take “real” photos with that sharp look too. I fail most of the time :(

      3. there is a version ( mount) of the lensbaby for every SLR or DSLR, which are cameras where you can exchange the lenses. If you have a camera with a zoom lens you can’t use the lensbaby.
        thank you for your comment about my pics!!
        And funny that you would want to take “real” photos…..:-))
        the sharp look quite often has to do with the quality of your camera.
        take care

    1. She’s not mine, she’s a “public property” of the neighbourhood ;-) She rules the roof and ceiling. Too arrogant and proud to become a family cat.
      Fabric photo? Thanks, I like it too; go ahead and get your charcoals :)
