Easy Like Sunday

Ahhhhhhh, it's Sunday again. I like Sunday. Everyone sits around after breakfast drinking coffee (just cream for me, please) and relaxing all morning. Mom reads the paper and I get to sit on her lap when she gets over to the sofa. I finally got my sofa-sitting privileges back after getting my feet cleaned up enough.

Mom's been taking a photography class at the local Community College and she's learning how make photographs without using the flashy thing. I'm liking this a lot more although I still shy away when she comes at me with that black box that used to flash. She says that in the house, she's going to have to get her small tripod out to use since the camera wants a very slow shutter speed and big aperture (whatever that means) when she doesn't use the flash and photos can get very blurry when she just holds the camera. She took this photo just holding the camera and she tried to stay very, very still. Later today, she wants to go over to a big park and take some photos. I'm waiting until she learns a lot and can take some real nice candid shots of me.

A photography class - great! Our mom sometimes holds her breath when taking a picture inside without flash. She looks so silly doing this, but she says it get's less blurry that way. Thank you for your sweet words yesterday, they mean a lot to us.
You look very easy and comfy there, Rusty.

You always look so handsome in your photos, Rusty. Not surprising since you look so much like handsome ME!!! heh heh. I am glad you have been relaxing. Not so relaxing here, what with dad cleaning and noisy vacumning and mum hammering shelves and alphabetising all her DVDs in a very OCD way...

That is cool that your mom is taking a photo class - I loved it when I was in school (it was my major a long time ago before digital). I have to use the flashy box most of the time because my cats are too fast to get with the camera on a tripod - well at least the young ones are.
