The Baddest Cat On The Planet

CatD3

“Baddest Cat On The Planet” 2009. Nikon D3, Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens.

If Iron Mike Tyson was the “baddest man on the planet” then Garfield must be the baddest cat on the planet! ๐Ÿ™‚

Obviously my main computer is not back from repair yet. I tried to do another review using this Chromebook. Couldn’t do it. Things got excruciatingly slow to the point where the computer was asking me if I wanted to “kill it?” for some applications.

So for now I can just throw out images that I had planned to use in reviews. This one is from the Nikon D3, a camera from 2007 that followed the high iso “revolution” led by the original Canon 5D Classic and took it to a whole new level. The 50mm f/1.4 Sigma EX DG HSM was quite a fantastic lens and if you can find a good copy, it is a great and less expensive alternative to today’s “ART” version of the 50mm f/1.4 lens.

I generally don’t do this kind of post-processing, but this one was hard to resist ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you all have a great weekend and I cannot end this post without mentioning the tragic events seen in France today. Wow, what has the world come to?

I’ve never been to Paris, but I feel a special connection with the French. Back in 2003, when I first started posting photos on the web, no one would give a poor kid a glance or a chance until someone from France liked one of my photos and helped get me noticed on that site.

I don’t post as much on photo sharing sites any more, but a lot of it is a game of “likes” and “dislikes” which is something I don’t like! There are so many talented photographers out there and it’s not always easy to get your work noticed.

Anyway, over the years I’ve noticed on a number of sites where I posted photos, my biggest supporters have always been from France. Some have even become cherished friends and comrades, one who I have met in person.ย Just as they supported me, today I stand with them and all my thoughts and prayers are with them and the good people of France.

    1. Hi Victor, yes I totally agree! Color isolation is so cliched, “cheesy” they might say! This one was taken on a grey fall day and the almost monotonous background tempted me into this area of avoidance! Thanks for your comments as always ๐Ÿ™‚
