We live next to a young family with two lively boys. They use our driveway and walkways as motorways, and my studio as a hide-n-seek obstacle; they entertain me while sketching in my sketch books and telling me stories; in general they cheer our daily lives. So, when my online photography class called for a photo of children and/or pets, I knew where to go.
When I first approached their parents about taking photos of them, Beckham was out of town. So I started with Brighton. However, I had to work to get a photo for class.
I got a lot of goofy faces:
but he slipped up once and smiled at me.
Brighton also got a bit serious, showing me a project he was working on.
When Beckham came back to town, I got to photograph him too.
But the subject of importance was Smith, the cat:
Smith is a very talented cat:
However, he doesn’t much like being watered, at least not when it’s dribbled on his fur.
But altogether he is a most patient creature.
However, even cats have their limits, so Brighton took the cat back into the house and returned to his bicycle.
Beckham continued with his pursuits ( it wasn’t me who watered the cat!)
Just couple of afternoons in the neighborhood.
(The camera I used to take these photos is a Sony a6300, digital mirrorless SLR.)
