CameraCritters Version 7.20

I have been really slacking in the picture department lately. I haven't been grabbing my camera and I haven't been participating in memes at all.

Bad girl.

I have a soft spot for the Camera Critters meme, though. I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that it's about my favorite subject in the world - to talk about and to photograph. Nope, nothing at all.

I went and dug back into the files on my computer... that I probably should delete eventually. They are all backed up, afterall. But they are pictures. How can you delete pictures? Even if you have them backed up 3 different times?

Well, I went and dug and found a picture of the Queen Bitch of the house. Serena Rosabella. This is my favorite picture of her... because she doesn't really look like a bitch, she looks like you could actually reach out and pet her without her running away. I can pet her, of course, I have no problems. It's everyone else who can't.

There are people in my life... people who have been in my life for the 9 years that this cat has been alive that swear I am full of it when I tell them I have a shaded-silver persian named Serena. She is a mystery to many... a legend, if you will. The cat nobody sees but yet she sleeps next to me every night.

Serena is definitely a beauty and what an innocent expression on her face! I can see why this would be a favourite picture!

your serena sounds like our departed Gertie... while people DID see her, she was very shy of people, could be very bitchy and mean.. she attacked me a few times and her "father" as well - it was HIS cat, not mine, but if she meant NO, she meant NO and she told him so - with stitches to his face!

She's a beautiful cat. At least she loves you. :)

I understand exactly what you mean about deleting pictures. I need to do that too, but it's so hard.
