The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #347

I don't think I have shared this long ago
Christmas Card taken when Grace was only 10.
She and I trundled all 3 cats to a photo studio
The photographer was a pro at getting
the cats to finally behave.
(after Mr Cat pooped in a corner and
Larry bopped Grace in the head)
Grace is holding Mr Cat, I have Mini-Mouth
and Larry is in the basket.
Years later Grace sent this image in to be included
in the book "Awkward Family Photos". Since then there
has been a bit of notoriety sort of like
Andy Warhols "15 Minutes of Fame"
We've even been spoofed on "Access Hollywood"

Oh, I think this is fun! For years I took a Christmas photo of my two younger kids along with our two rottweilers and our beagle-mix to include in our card. Always an entertaining photo!
