    Awwwww. Can”t lose with cats. Yours? And we need all the soothers we can get.

  3. Kurtz says:

    I was looking st your 365 project, and liked that one a lot. The two cats practicing their martial arts was also excellent.

    How do you like the Canon mirrorless?

  4. @gVOR08: Yep–one of three.

    @Kurtz: Thanks. And I have been really happy with the new camera. It has been the upgrade from the previous body that I had hoped for.

    @Steven L. Taylor:

    I’m just now getting into photography. I had a Canon DSLR a few years ago, but it got stolen.
    I settled on Sony for budget reasons. Thought I considered Olympus as well.

    What were you shooting before?

  6. @Kurtz: I had two different crop-sensor Canon Rebels before I shifted to the full frame mirrorless. I had enough money in lenses that I didn’t consider moving to a different ecosystem.

    Which Sony do you have?

    @Steven L. Taylor:

    I bought a used a6000 so I could budget more money for decent glass and filters. I am impressed so far with the Gobe filter kit I got.

    Went a little inexpensive on the tripod, figuring that I needed to see what I did and didn’t like about it before I opened the wallet for a carbon fiber.

    I have my next couple purchases lined up. Just kind of waiting for things to get back to normal.

    Been there with cats.

    Sometimes they go friggin mental over a pen cap as the most fascinating thing that ever existed.

    It is baffling.

    They may be taunting us. It would surprise me.
