I had the bright idea to take photos of this weekend’s cat show using Hipstamatic.
I always randomise the film, lens and flash (if I use one), so I never know what I’m going to get.
I think some of the images I get are truly lovely.
This photo, I think, captures the buzz of activity at a cat show neatly in a little square frame.
While this one, which uses the same “Dali” lens, is just kind of…weird.
I’m not sure how I get the selective blurring, but I like it.
While they are super-busy, cat shows also involve a good deal of sitting and waiting for your number to be requested.
You have to be patient, yet ready for action.
The quiet times are good, though. They give you a chance to reflect.
And to practice your charm and people skills!
