Black Cats Crossing Your Path!

I have a difficult time getting good photos of the black cats. The lighting in this home is not ideal, and with Little Girl, good luck getting her to stand still long enough to get a decent shot.

But recently I got a good one of each of them, so I thought I’d share them with you. Cute pics always make Monday more bearable.

Hope yours is a good one.

Graybie Baby is a basket case!

She doesn't appear happy, but I was sure happy she sat still long enough for me to get a decent photo of her.

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. Awwwww sweet to see the panthers in your house! I was lucky when I had my Black Jack. He was lazy and I lived in the mountains in a very sunny house. I have quite a few ‘decent’ pics of him but not like Marty and how well he photos.

  4. Black cats are special in a great way. Your fur-babies are beautiful. My cats love baskets, too! Have a great week. 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness! That is absolutely fabulous! We have the same challenges with our cats and our black lab. I think the background can make a very big difference. This one is stunning.

  12. Mom has the same issues. Photographing black kitties can be quite difficult. For Mom the lighting isn’t bright enough or Luna comes out super shiny and she isn’t the best at being still either. Mom totally understands and these two came out lovely.

  13. Excellent black cat photos! Getting good photos of our black kitties has always been a challenge for me, but it’s so pleasing when I get the rare good one.

  19. We’re big fans of black cats and Graybie Baby and Little Girl are two excellent examples.

  20. We suffer dreadfully from the black animal photo syndrome 😉 So hard to take and good lighting is always vital. You’ve done superbly – gorgeous shots of the lovelies.

  21. I have the same problem Jen, however you did very well here 🙂

  22. They’re both beautiful. They remind me of our black cat, Shadow, who passed in 2001.

  23. Love the photos, the black cat is beautiful…not that I’m biased or anything having had a beautiful black cat of my own, before he vanished, never to be seen again after we moved house. I would love to give this one a big wolfie cuddle! 🙂

  24. Beautiful photos of a beautiful cat. Photographing animals is always tricky – you can’t tell them to sit still and say ‘cheese’! (well, you can, but they won’t do it) 🙂
