Cats – Elle


This one’s name is Elle. She’s extraordinarily shy. In fact I knew about her but had never seen her.


Then I saw her but only for a second at a time. Then I discovered she did not like cameras.


Fish don’t like cameras. I assume a big thing swimming toward them with big bubbles blowing is off putting. But how does a cat know to be inherently skittish.


Nonetheless I find Elle running whenever I approach with a camera. Persistence! And volume! I shoot lots.


Eventually you get a few images. Voila! Gotcha.


Oh, she’s come ‘round. Elle will even nudge me to pet her now. But no photos please! She still runs when I pull the camera out.
