Weekend Theme – Doing it right
Sidey’s challenges don’t half make your brain work. Well I suppose if they didn’t, it wouldn’t be a challenge. Anyway, I was stumped. None of my ideas worked and I was of the opinion I was going to have to give up. I don’t like giving up; I call it tenacious. The OH calls it, “pain in the….!”; My Mum calls it: “being cussed!”
However, all was not lost…
This week’s posting is the result of Rover taking pity on me last night. I was trying out our new camera; mine and OH’s joint birthday present from the ageing parents. It’s a Nikon 810, a bridge camera. More importantly … it’s red.
Anyway, cutting a long story short, Rover decided he didn’t want me taking shots of the garden – well not without him in them anyway – so he got in the way. I tried ignoring him, but he wasn’t having it. Those of you who know “Chief” know he’s just not going give up when he’s right. So I gave in.
The first shot definitely wasn’t doing it right… The middle two? Well they’re getting there but still not perfect. The last one? well judge for yourself…

This one sort of covers two weekend themes as Rover certainly photobombed your garden shots. Personally i think he really improved them.
so does he 🙂
A Nikon 810? Isn’t that the 24 megapixel one? I’m in awe! it produces fabulous pictures of Rover.
No 16 megapixels but an amazing zoom!- And thanks …He’s one of the most photogenic cats I’ve ever seen 🙂
What a dashing character!
River says thanks for recognising his genius 🙂
Reblogged this on Kate Shrewsday and commented:
More than a cat is more than a cat, I’ll give you that. Though it was the highly idiosyncratic cat – Rover Blowfeld -who drew me in, plain and simple. Rover is an arch villain. He tweets better than the birds. BUt is owner, the arch-cat-hotelier behind the inscrutable face that is Rover – well, what a voice. Firm but fair, eloquent and with a clear world view. See her post which features a local robin, sitting on a garden bench. The post reads simply: “A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.”
Of course he persisted in being the center of all since I am sure he is convinced he is the center of all 🙂
oh he’s more than convinced… he knows! 🙂
Fantastic shots and take on Sidey’s theme. (I’m here via Kate’s reblog).
thank you for stopping by. They were real serendipty… but when he wants you to take his photo there’s no denying him 🙂
He’s gorgeous. But I suppose everyone tells him that.
Correct!! 🙂 it’s the least they can do apparently! 🙂
Very majestic, almost noble looking cat, trying out for the part of Aslan?
Oh most definitely!! 🙂
