A Street Cat Named Purrsea

Photography 101, Day 2: Today, let’s focus on a street. While you’re free to take a picture from any angle, try to capture an establishing shot: a wide-angle photo that sets up a scene. In your wide shot, also think about its basic components: a foreground and a background. The foreground is the part of your scene that’s nearest to the viewer, and where you can place a subject or focal point of your picture.

Wait…how did I miss seeing that before?


I don’t see any dogs around. I think the coast is clear….


Ah-ha, now you’re mine!

  1. What are you doing in the street trailing your leash behind you? What a great shot of the fall leaves. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Hi Purrsea
    Your owner did a great job on the pictures, they really work well for a wide angle street shot. You are in the right place and the first thing I noticed on the top picture was YOU, good job. I like the first image totally, great composition. The second image even more gets the feel of a wide angle. but the camera was aimed a little high you have been cut off a little. Be glad its only in the image 🙂 The bottom one shows too much around everything let’s say it’s a nice snapshot.
    Your owner has a good feel for composition, The colors are nice and bright but some little things need to be improved like the framing of the second picture. I would also suggest to use a editing program so you can remove the black spot and the leave in the first picture. In general, a good use of composition and the right moment.

  3. Yes the last picture was really just there to complete the story of the scene setup in the first photo…mol.. Mom has to be quick to catch me in any pose as I don’t sit too long while waiting for her to get the right aim. Hmmm…the black spot and leaf…good eye…never even thought they’d create a distraction. Post editing is new to us and kind of feels like cheating (couldn’t do that with film…isn’t digital great!). Thanks for your comments and glad you like them. 🙂


  4. Wow…you’re free! Doesn’t it feel good Purrsea but it looks like you could have cars coming down the road at any time so best use the leash with mom’s help. Nice neighbourhood…sniff that hydrantt well…it stinks of dog doesn’t it…yuck!…walk on by my friend and hold your head up high.
