Admittedly it’s been kind of a slow week ,but I’m okay with that. It does however, leave me looking, rather desperately, for the next post or photograph. Yesterday evening Miles was dramatically back-lit by the sun coming through the front window. He was elegantly sprawled in a very manly, confident pose much like the 1972 Burt Reynolds Cosmo centerfold shoot. (FYI: I was not even born yet, but somehow that image has been burned into my brain. I suspect that Smokey and the Bandit as well as Cannonball Run are at fault.)
Seriously, this cat has it going on. He projects Barry White music, sometimes a little Marvin Gaye, constantly. I don’t know how Birdie, Sookie, and Olivia can keep their paws off him. Hoping to capture this panther-esque moment, I grabbed my camera, framed the shot, then sadly watched as Olivia photo bombed the whole thing.
Her kitten Spidey-sense told her that there was an active camera. She came out of nowhere and flopped on to her side into the shot. Ultimately, she did a slow motion belly to back role that put her even closer to Miles and pretty much ruined everything I was going for. Damn, his lady-attracting sensuality!
I swear that Miles looked just like this right before Olivia flopped into the frame. It was amazing!
P.S. I do NOT recommend searching “Burt Reynolds centerfold.” There are a lot of creative people in the world who have recreated that photo. Some of them are interesting,but mostly disturbing, some inexplicable, and many will just hurt your eyes.
UPDATE: I can’t believe I wrote this and left out the phrase “animal magnetism.” I’ve lost my cliches!
