Weekly Photo Challenge 2016 | Week #02: ‘Leading Lines’

2016 Weekly Photo Challenge: "02. Leading Lines" | Reghan Skerry

Two weeks in, and I’m already taking cat pictures!

This might be one of the most difficult photos I’ve ever taken. Lucy’s getting a bit better now, but she’s still nearly impossible to take a decent photo of—she doesn’t leave the room as soon as she sees the camera (anymore), but she will walk away almost as soon as it’s pointed in her direction. And in this case, I had a very specific picture in mind (because, well, I am trying to work with a prompt, here), and that never works with her. She doesn’t pose, and if you try to get her to sit in a specific place, she immediately gets suspicious.

I’m frankly amazed that she sat still long enough to get this shot.
