Hi, I'm Rick also known as Mr. C. I used to shoot with a Canon SLR, but that was a long while back. I got a new camera, an Olympus SP-510UZ on 11/06/06. I've added a Nikon D90 with a 55-200 lens to my camera bag in 2010. I'll get a camphone if Almont ever enters the 21st century.

I'm now shooting with a brand new Nikon D90 with a 55-200mm VR lens.

It's very hard to photograph black cats well. You've done a great job here, and what a fantastic composition!

I love the fact that one of them decided something on the ceiling was more interesting than the food slave human with the camera :-). Excellent shot Rick!

Thanks, E. That's mama Sinister (center)and her four daughters, (from left) Miss Adventure, Izzy, Teddy and Lynx.

Everyone, I like all the different names for a group of cats! They are funny.

I was standing in front of the window, and the sun was reflecting off the face of my watch onto the wall and ceiling. I had been playing with them for half an hour before I ran and got the camera to get this pic.

Cat power.

this is a great composition. I know they just posed for you immediately and stayed perfectly still.

Thanks, Swamprose. No, they didn't stay still for very long. I had to one-hand the camera while jiggling my watch wrist to keep their attention on the light spot on the ceiling.

Mrs. C, I'd played with them for about a half hour beore I grabbed these photos.

Thanks J-XL What? No food in their dish? Let them eat Light!

Thanks, Euphro. I did make a video just the other day on my camera of the cats playin' with the light. Just have to figure out how to process it and where to post it.

Hope you, Caine and all the cats are happy and well.
