I’ve been thinking about the direction of this blog. I has been mostly dormant over the last year or two. At first, this blog was a place to share photos I had taken with friends (cosplay and portrait photography). Then, I tried out food reviewing and didn’t enjoy it too much as I don’t think my palate is particularly refined! Next, I tried my hand at food styling and photography, which I found really honed my composition and styling skills. Then, I got my own cats and became more interested in pet photography, which is similar to portraiture with humans, except on a smaller scale and there’s less ability to direct your subject ;)
Recently, I entertained the possibility of working as a photographer part-time, but I have since found other employment and no longer need to use photography as a source of income. So now, rather than trying to figure out what would sell sessions (which was starting to suck the fun out of my favourite hobby), I can just return to just photographing things I love.
One of the things I love most in the world is my cats. I realised today that I haven’t posted any pictures of them on the blog! They got some fresh cat grass today, which Jaska really goes crazy over. Due to my black thumb, the old cat grass in the planter pictured below had died and the cats had a field day digging out all of the dead grass and soil, spilling this all over the ground. Hopefully having some tasty plants in there will curb their instinct to dig it out again for a little while! For reference, Sefi is the one with white patches, Jaska is the other with no visible white patches :)
