Photo Friday: Young Chris


Here is a picture of Chris when he was around ten months old, taken on March 5, 2010. He was playing with this stuffed animal at the time.

I know the quality is not perfect but I like the look on his face. I also have videos from the same day of him playing with a Q-tip. Unfortunately, the videos are too out of focus to share, which is too bad because he was so funny back then.

Photo Friday: Cats on Film


I recently read a post on Cat Chat with Caren and Cody where she posted old photos of Cody as a kitten and apologized for the quality. It reminded me that most of the photos I took of my pets back in the days when I used film cameras were not that good. I was capable of good photography back then but pet photos were usually taken spur of the moment in bad lighting without much effort put into quality.

I did manage to find a group of photos taken January 20, 2010 that are not too bad. We were still living in South Carolina at the time and a coworker sold me his Canon SLR that he bought for school but never used after his class was over. I bought a roll of film to test it out and then sold it on Ebay. Here are some of the test photos.

This is Chris with one of the pacifiers he stole from visiting guests that had a baby.
Here is Abbey.
I have used this Photo of Abbey but I thought it was worth showing again.
This is Tigger and Abbey’s brother, Alex.
This is Flash, Tigger’s brother. He died three months later at less than six years old.

I know this is not my typical one-photo Friday post but I thought you might enjoy a glimpse into the past. It should be noted that we had two other cats, Sneakers and Princess. Sneakers went to live with my stepson, Nick, in 2007. He also took Princess when we moved to Myrtle Beach in 2009. Princess came back to us in 2010 but probably after these photos were taken.
