Aby-a-Day – 24 September 2020: Taking photos of cats is a crapshoot (Thursday Things)

I have been taking photos of cats for over 50 years, ever since my dad gave me a Brownie Starflash camera when I was four years old.

I mean, even the manual said it was meant to take photos of cats!


In the old film days, I could take a photo of a cat at 1/8 of a second, which is a really slow shutter speed. I could hold that still. So I know I can seem to make taking photos of cats look easy.


Just remember…no matter how long you’ve been taking photos, you can still end up with photos like this. At least I don’t have to pay for film and processing any more!
