Herding Cats

I'm sure you may have heard the term "Herding Cats". It basically means trying to perform an almost impossible task. Photographing them by yourself isn't easy either. This morning as I was walking past the kitchen I noticed that the blasted cat was sitting in some really nice light. Quickly I grabbed my camera, threw on a short lens and grabbed a piece of black foam core. When I came back into the kitchen the blasted cat was just getting up to leave. I petted her so she would hold still and slowly slid the foam core behind her. She would have none of that piece of foam core and she tried to bolt. I pressed my hand on her back and she settled down a bit when I started petting her. She rolled onto her side and to my slight horror she knocked over the foam core. She immediately bolted from the kitchen out into the living room. I walked over and picked her up and brought her back to the kitchen and put a bowl of food where I wanted her to go. She seemed to accept this and he ate for awhile with her head down and then she walked off. I put her back and then she seemed to think it was OK and then she took off upstairs. After a short search I found her. I carried her down the stairs petting her the whole way. When I put her in front of the foam core this time she settled down and let me photograph her. The blasted cat isn't so bad after all. God's love and blessings to all, chris Image created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 17-85mm lens at 66mm. AV mode, ISO 800,F 5.6 at 1/125th of a sec.
