Gratuitous Cat Video #1

I'll be honest with you. This is not a particularly exciting video. I recently got a new camera and I just can't resist using the video! The video is under a minute and it is an iside look at what the cats start doing at around 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon. Dinnertime is at 5:00, but they like to start hovering near the food bucket (the white bucket in the video) and crying lest we forget to feed them. I wanted to get them both whining in unison (singing for their supper!), but alas, they would not perform for me. Both are used to their pictures being taken, but Rocky looked a bit baffled as to why I was following him around with the little camera. ("Just feed me already woman!") This is Gratuitous Cat Video #1 because I am sure there will be more to come!

On the new camera - I absolutely love it!! I love my Canon 350D as well, but I missed having a compact digital that I could easily carry with me everywhere. The SD800 has a surprising amount of functions for an automatic camera, some that I still need to figure out and some that I will probably never use. It also allows setting the ISO as high as 1600 which is important for me when I am shooting pictures at shows. Makes for a lot of noise in a photo, but that isn't always a bad thing. Anyway, I am very happy with my purchase.

It is snowing again today and it's finally starting to look like a winter wonderland around here! I love it when everything is blanketed by fresh snow. It's so lovely. And it helps brighten up the gray days.

Since I began this post with a gratuitous cat video, I will end it with a gratuitous cat photo. It's an old one, taken in our Brooklyn apartment in 2004. It makes Rocky look like his middle name could be "No Neck", but I still love it. We got the best morning light in the apartment.
