Hi 🙂 Questions to fellow photographers: What’s your favorite thing to photograph, and what do you photograph most? My favorites are probably butterflies and moths, but what I photograph most (i.e. every day) are my cats and random street scenes.

Here are this week’s photos-

(i) My cat Tonje, photographed with Fujifilm X-T1 and 60 mm macro lens

Happy New Year!

I’m a day late for week 52’s post, but here it is anyway – New shots taken with Fuji 60 mm a few days ago:

Last week of December, I can’t believe these have managed to survive this long!

A cat in the neighborhood. No problem for this lens to focus through the branches!

Week 50, and I got a new lens! Unfortunately not the one I’ve waited a year for Fujifilm to release (80 mm, 1:1), but I got a 60 mm (1:2) macro instead. A bit disappointing, but one of the main reasons why I switched from Canon to Fuji was because of the lightweight camera and lenses, and the new 80 mm is a brick – big and bulky 750 g compared to the small and compact 60 mm weighting only 215 g. And € 1,300 vs € 500. But there’s no doubt at all that the 80 mm is the superior lens of the two, and I look forward to see more pictures from those who got it!

So, I ended up with a lens I could’ve gotten a year ago… But no reason to cry over spilled milk! Here are the first test shots I’ve taken, I haven’t had time to walk in the forest this week so it’s one picture of planted heather outside my house and another one of my cat Tonje ❤

It’s snowing in Amsterdam! 🙂

Photos by iPhone – one taken just an hour ago when I was waiting for the tram to go home. The other one is a collage with pictures of my cat Tonje ❤

Despite the abundance in photographs (see previous post), I still think there’s room for more. 🙂 Even a photo of a cat! To add to the trillions out there already.

Actually, I’ve been wanting to use my new camera, Fujifilm X-T1, but due to lack of time and horrid weather I haven’t been able to get out. So, my cat Odd has been forced to model for me at home. This picture was taken in low light without flash

My cats Odd and Tonje –  ❤ – captured by iPhone

Gentle eyes that see so much, paws that have the quiet touch.

Purrs to signal “all is well” and show more love than words can tell.

Graceful movements touched with pride, a calming presence by our side.

A friendship that will last and grow, small wonder why we love them so.

He reminds me of Henri, Le Chat Noir.  🙂 Here’s one of my favourite video clips with Henri:
