Photo taken: November 5, 2009
I’ve taken oh so many photos since I got my first digital camera nine years ago, particularly of cats and squirrels, that there is no way I can remember everything I’ve ever photographed… or even notice how really cool some of the “throwaway” pictures look. This is one of those throwaways I rediscovered back in June when I was putting this countdown together. It’s three month old Spilly pawing at a pool of sunlight on the floor, with his naturally ebony fur made even darker by being in the shadows. The shadows don’t always ruin a good picture… sometimes they actually make it look so much cooler.
