photoblog image Smug Cat

Smug Cat

I'm just chilling at my local Starbucks and looking through my archives... and this photo struck me again! He's my neighbour's cat and is so smug that sometimes I just want to give him a good scare :)

I'm pretty disappointed in the distraction from the handlebar of the motorbike it's sitting on, but otherwise I'm quite pleased with being able to capture his 'I don't care' look!

doesn't he just annoy you?

I love the green/blue light behind him and showing through his hairs. Also, that I don't care look is so familiar with my Bella.
Abisola Fatokun: yeap. My cat also had that same 'I don't care' look. I used to annoy me to no end tongue
so if ur disappointed at the handlebar, how come u didn't change ur viewpoint...?
otherwise i like this smile
Abisola Fatokun: If I changed my viewpoint, I'm afraid I'd have had to move INTO my neighbour's compound and I don't have the liver for that! At least, not yet. thanks deji!
The colours around his face are lovely, he knows he's so pretty.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Aussie! I thought his features were quite striking myself smile
the blue backround makes the cat look so much more beautiful smile
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Mallory. That was my neighbour's car!
Great photo, beautiful cat; he has that supercilious, look that says "yeah, you and who else!" at the very idea that he could be moved. I agred with others that the blue background is good.

If you are so unhappy with the handlebars, why not remove them? I don't have the expensive software that many others on here have, but even with my free versions / cheap copies of that software I could replace that grey block with a blended in continuation of the background colour.
Abisola Fatokun: thanks Sheila. he posed for me, thankfully! I actually have photoshop and probably should have attempted to remove the gray block. Two things stopped me though : indolence; and the fear of messing up his fur! I should've tried, though smile

That is one sassy cat, Fausto. Does he know he looks so good against that background...or does he even care. LOL!
Abisola Fatokun: He knows! Trust me, ginnie he knows smile the look he gave me would've seduced me if I was a cat myself grin

Rats--I called you Fausto and meant to call you Bisola. So sorry about that, BISOLA BISOLA BISOLA!!!
Abisola Fatokun: why would you say rats when you can see a cat!? No worries Ginnie. I've been called all sorts of names tongue
Lovely capture here, this is just one superb capture.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks 'subsin'! I'm happy you like it.
Great contrast between the rich blue background and the wonderful colour of the fur. These cats always look superior - they can't help it! If the handlebar annoys you, why not clone it out in PS?
Ingrid
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Ingrid! The cat really looked regal perched on his throne that day smile too bad I didn't change positions to remove the handlebar. I was a bit afraid to clone it in PS 'cos I didn't want to mess up his fur!
lol
Really, what am i don't care look...Nice Catch!
Abisola Fatokun: thanks for dropping by ChaCha. He was just begging to be photographed and I happily indulged him smile
Very nice guy, the background is great too !
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks! He knew he was posing in front of a great background smile He's just a POSER! smile thanks for dropping by.
Beautiful portrait of this cat. You have captured his character very well. (:o)
