"Make Yourself At Home"

By RonnieAG
Brodie (now 11 months old) came to stay with us for a day and whilst Mrs. RonnieAG had taken over my KS Studio (top left) he made himself at home in my best chair, having a game of catching his tail.
This was a quick grab shot........I just flipped up the built in flash and fired away without checking the settings.
The image is exactly as captured with no editing whatsoever.
After he few minutes he was still on the chair however and tiring of that game he fell fast asleep.........see V 2.

My thanks to all who commented on Orange and Lemon and with special thanks to Nathan {NDODS}, John {johnriley1uk} and Graham {digital_boi} for their User Awards which are so much appreciated.


(PS. EXIF data refers to V 2 only........R)

....and they do! Two delightful images and I think No. 2 is my favourite but possibly a cropped No. 1 would challenge it. Good solid tripod you have there Wink

Albert, you are quite right: but as I said up top it was a quick grab shot and at the time I did not notice my wife busy at the kitchen sink in the b/g, but on viewing the result I decided to leave it as it was, the contrast between the busy householder and the hairy guest at ease in the best seat in the house. Makes a good family album snap but is not going to win any plaudits photographically. More of a fun snap for the weekend.

Brodie has certainly made his self well and truly at home, photograph number II certainly emphasises his rather blase approach to life.
