Shaved cat...New lens...Sandcastles

Hasn't exactly been an exciting week, really. Pretty calm, I guess...considering there is always a ton of chaos going on in my life.

We shaved Smokie! I can honestly say that I think he prefers to be shaved in the summer months, he was so cooperative. I know, I know...he looks REALLY funny! But, at 17, he can't care for himself like he used to, so drastic measures have to be taken to keep his coat healthier.

AFTER with new 50mm lens:


I also got my new Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens - OH!! AM I IN LOVE! This little lens is so awesome!
Some GREAT shots are going to come out of this lens!



ALSO, this weekend was the New England Sand Sculpting Invitational - it's an annual event held here at Revere Beach. I got some great shots this morning...man it was HAZY - this weather is killing me! Go check out all the sculptures at my FLICKR page! I photograph this event every year. I wouldn't miss it for the world - I just love the creativity...year after year, you start to recognize some of the artists' work.

Awww, Smokie, looks like one cool cat!

I don't know how I have lived here my whole life and that competition is another thing I have yet to get to. Oh well, I will have to live vicariously through your photos! LOL :-)

Smokie is such a sport. What a sweet kitty. I'm sure he feels much better, even if he does look funny! LOL
