19.10.04 | The Milltown Cat (or 'More Tails of Hot Pussy')

Prudence with poise!!! Clicky for full glory. Oyess.

So Prudence returns to my blog once again. Mainly because this is just about my most favourite cat picture i ever took. Also it was an incredible fluke, because i hadn't done any focussing or anything!! Depth of field?- What's that?!?!
I was quite new to cameras then, using an old manual pentax slr that me dad bought for forty quid from a second-hand shop. Still have it. Still works just fine.

Anyway, i was talking about the dear departed Prude (We actually called her Moodas, just as often) to her owner the other day. And so i remembered that i was gonna post this.

Next up: The Saturnyne remembers his childhood television habits, PLUS (Gasp from an adoring audience please)... What exactly does a Harle Syker sound like? The Saturnyne gives you some mirthful pointers...

lovely photo!
oh, it so reminds me of england, lovely england.
when i visited june last year, my friend (in bury) had 2 black cats named polly and esther (when you called for them you would shout 'polyester'- clever, eh?). they would come in at random from the roof thru my open 2nd story guestroom window to visit me. they had fleas, which made me sad. anyways...
of my own pics, i find that my faves are always the happy accidents. i'm lucky to get 5 good shots on one 24exp roll!
pentax- yeah!
anticipating your next post...

THAT PICTURE IS GORGEOUS! Kitties have such personality. This morning, the neighbors kitty was walking across the street as I was trying to drive down it so I slowed for her and she slowed and I crept forward and she crept forward, then I slowed again and she scurried across but the entire time she was looking at the car SO suspiciously! It was like she thought the car was stalking her. The look on her furry face was priceless! eek! LOVE IT!

Whilst undoubtedly smart, sassy and in control of their own destiny, cats make me sneeze. Bah!

Still, it's a lovely photo.

So then, the image is titled "prudence altered large internet size.jpg" so with the altered part in mind we have to ask.

Have you been touching up those cats again ?

  11:09 pm :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

WEll, Carl, the pic is so named, because i had to make a few alterations, re: dustmarks, contrast, untinting, retinting, cropping, sharpening (perhaps, but mebbe not) and then re-sizing it from a mere 60 meg down to a more palatable 600+k

Also, i couldn't resist making my image archives even more complex and unfathomable than they are already.

Although... it kinda makes sense somewhere in me head...

HEy B, didja say "Bury" there? THat's near me... well... a one hour bus ride away on the X43... next time yer in this part o' the world, ya should drop by, an' i'll take yer to my favourite caff. Would be a pleasure. I'll even pay!

In fact yer all should drop by if yer ever even remotely within 50 miles of my home, or i'll be insulted and call yer rude names. Glower too, probably.

THanks for the praise, everyone. Am attempting to not be smug about it... at least on the outside. heh!

whoops, when i said "bury" i meant bury st. edmunds, suffolk, which would actually be about 4-5 hours from you (i think?). i had no idea there would be an actual "bury"- sorry. but, if i get moved over there in the next year or so (like i plan to), then harle syke would make for a nice weekend trip.
i was once acquainted with some people next door to me in my last apartment building in birmingham, alabama who were from blackpool. that is closer to you, isn't it?
well, if i ever get over there to your area, i'll take you up on that offer!

mmmmmm.... I do so love kats... I do like puppies too.... but i would have to say that I like cats alot more.... My particularly favorite cat wold be my kitty Mitzie.... She was born a runt so she is very tiny.... but she has alot of fur so she looks normal... but when you pick her up you can tell that she is tiny for sure.... No one in my house likes her though.... she is really quite a bitch and she beats up the dog on a frequent basis.... I love her though and would be quite willing to take her from her hell hole but she wouldnt like living indoors.... I dont think she knows how to use a litter box... she is an outdoor farm type cat... although looking at her you wouldnt know....
I do so enjoy the look of that kittie too.... I like grey on cats it looks so normal and cute... I saw the most pretty white kittie today... adorable.... I want a cat now darn it... I just dont want the smell that s=comes with them... grrr
anyway toodles.... I like your picture alot... I think you take lovely pics and you should post them more often... what do you have by way of grave yards and such... I think they make the prettiest pictures around

Ah, more luvverlylyly comments.

Yeah, i do have some more graveyard shots to share at some point in the distant future, Amanda.

And, i'm a terrible host in a small house, Cece! But if you and yer family DO find yerself in the NW of England, then by all means look me up. I shall be eccentrically chaming, no doubt...
