eye to eye


One of my favorite things about photography is capturing images from interesting angles—giving a perspective that’s unique from what the average person can see from atop a five or six foot frame.

The quest for these angles can lead to some rather strange positions. For example, most people don’t lay face down on a rain-puddled sidewalk like I felt compelled to do when I saw these cheerful little faces peeping up from the cracks between the bricks at my dear friend Suze’s house. (Suze—the pictures were well worth the wet!)


The most remarkable of these little buggers was a lonely threesome growing a little way off… out of the vertical brickwork on the front steps!


I got back on the ground to take some “portraits” of the newest furballs of the kitty family at my house (although I must say that carpet is slightly more comfortable than a sidewalk!). Meet Lizzy’s daughters. (Forewarning: my six-year-old sister picked the names. Enough said.)


(Linking the above photo to this week’s Little Somethings photo challenge.) The general consensus is that Spotty is the cutest. :) She’s also quite a pudgy little thing.


Okay, so I kind of helped Amy on this name. She originally named this kitten Darth Vader because of the facial markings, but we decided she looks more like an ewok from the moon of Endor in Return of the Jedi.



Not really sure where that name came from. Maybe it had to do with all the Royal Wedding talk?

Anyway, now you’ve met the Three Little Kittens. Only these don’t cry from losing their mittens—they cry when they lose their mommy. :)

  2. Hello Hallie! Thanks for visiting us and leave us a comment! We're a brazilians. We're don't speak spanish, but brazilian portuguese! Happy friday!

  3. Oh my! Those little kittens are so adorable!

  4. Hallie, I was all set to email you and plead for pictures of the kittens, so this post was perfect timing! They are cute little things but in a few weeks they'll be practically-illegal-cute!! Beautiful pics as always...makes me a bit homesick, I always find those little flowers growing out of the cracks to have so much charm.

  5. Just to boost your ego, even me, an avid arguer with you over which is a better pet, finds those little things adorable. And yes, I mean the kittens, not the flowers :P
