Under the Table

I had waited for that wonderful warm spot of autumn sun that streaked under the round white table with a wonderful glow, and got myself all comfortable for a nice, quiet meditative time to empty my feline mind and let the sun wash over me as evening drew near. The perfect way to prepare for a meal as dinner would then be served.

Then that idiot human with her black eye thing discovered me and bibbled and fussed and laid down on the floor at all sorts of unhuman angles (really, human, you are no cat, stop trying to act like one) and all idea of peaceful feline contemplation was gone.

Don’t believe Namir. He loved to be photographed. And he enjoyed this little session, even finding it difficult to keep from feline giggles while I made a fool of myself on the floor.

Each one of the photos worked nicely as Namir was a perfect model. I shot them all in color but changed a few to black and white because that had been my intent in the first place, all that contrast and distinct shapes and patterning work so well in black and white.

But, as below, I also enjoyed the warm yellow sunlight contrasting with the cool blue shadows…and Namir’s tourmaline eyes.

Photos From the Archives are digital photos I’d taken either before I began blogging or ones that I didn’t use as a daily photo (sometimes there are several good ones in one day), but usually taken on or about the date I publish it now. They’ve just been sitting in the archives waiting to be noticed. Vintage Photos are on film and scanned from negatives or prints.

All images used on this site are copyrighted to Bernadette E. Kazmarski unless otherwise noted and may not be used without my written permission. Please ask if you are interested in using one in a print or internet publication. If you are interested in purchasing a print of this image or a product including this image, check my Etsy shop or Fine Art America profile to see if I have it available already. If you don’t find it there, visit Ordering Custom Artwork for more information on a custom greeting card, print or other item.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.
