Years ago my boss walked into my office, let out a little gasp and involuntarily jumped. She had come face to face with a giant eye. Yes, this was once the desktop image on my computer and it did shock some people (click on the image for more detail, if you dare :)). Was it the eye of a giant? Perhaps a tiger. Well, no.
The subject matter was my award winning cat, Bartelby. Besides being the subject of an award winning painting, he was the subject of many, many photos.
One day I was playing with a macro lens and needed a subject. Bartelby was sitting there looking up at me, a kitty smile on his little kitty cat face. How could I resist? So a great cat’s eye macro was created.
Bart was our first cat. He lived into his teens. I still miss him.
