Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Today I am combining two posts from August 2012. They are both from when the boys went out wearing their camera and is called
Photographer Cats
Mum charged our camera up for us because we haven't taken any photos for quite some time. She has got it set to take a photo every minute and it will take 40 photos, so we wear it for 20 minutes each. If she gets 10 reasonable photos out of the set, she tells us we have done very well.
Part 1, Flynn

Flynn: It was my turn first so I took a photo on the path on the way down to the fields.

That is dad's roller by the gate for making the field go flat.

Huh! Trust Eric to walk in front of me!

Here is some nice tasty grass. It is good if you want to yak.

This is the horse poop heap. It is all the fresh poop that is picked up from the fields and is very stinky! The poop heap you saw us by the other day is the winter poop heap and has bedding with it and is not stinky.

There is Snowdon the horse and he is under our favourite climbing tree.

Mum told Eric it is his turn to wear the camera now so he said he would have a quick bath first.
He will show you his photos later in the week.

Part 2, Eric

Eric: Do you remember in Flynn's last photo that it was a back view of me sat here having a wash? Well you can't see me now because I am wearing the camera.

I took a photo of Snowdon, but he must have been sneaky and jumped sideways so I almost missed him.

Here is some more nommy grass, but mine is better than Flynn's because it has clover in it.

Dad has been replacing the garage roof so I went and checked the old roofing sheets.

Then we went back in the garden and I took a photo of Flynn. I could do with a zoom lens really, but mum said it would be too heavy for me. Those are my whiskers hanging down in the top right.

Then I took a photo of one of our nip plants. It came out blurry but nip does that to you.

This is one of our outdoor drinking bowls with rainwater in it. It has got some dead grass in it too from when dad cut the lawn, but that gives it extra flavour.

I saw Flynn had gone in his plant pot in the greenhouse and wanted to take another photo of him, but he was too busy bathing to look up. I hope you have enjoyed our photos from our viewpoint.

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I didn't think any of the photos in today's post would make good art so I chose one at random from my folder.

I started with Flow at 50%, then added Landscape at 35% and finished with Frost at 20%.
Of course there is a puzzle.

Oh we remember the cat-camera pictures so well. We loved the cat's view...

Summer said...

My human remembers these! She still has Sparkle's camera... maybe if she figures out where it is, she will put it on me.

we love the little details we can discover in every photo... and because we are...ummm special... we love the fresh horse poop....aaah a whole pile of snacks ;O)

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that picture you turned into a puzzle! You have so many great ones of the boys on their adventures - but I love seeing their very similar markings. Your boys could've made a full length movie a lot more exciting than most of the stuff that comes out these days!

stevebethere said...

Nice memories and shots although Eric walking in front of you made me laugh heheh!

Nice art again makes them always stand out good work :-)
Have an artistictastic week :-)

Pam and Teddy said...

The ginger twins were such great photographers! Horses, fields, each other - they captured lots of great stuff! The best photo of all though is the one you ratified - they look so handsome standing side by side.

Love, Teddy

We always loved the boys photo sessions!

We remember that camera and all the great photos they took with it. Thanks for the great flashback!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Aww, I love this! It would be fun to have photographer cats here, but I don't think they'd capture anything quite as interesting as Eric and Flynn did.

ghostmmnc said...

Such a fun idea to use cat cameras! Your kitties were such good friends, and just beautiful. <3

Mike Golch said...

That was a fun post. But we are glad we don't have to wear a camera - we don't want Mom snooping on what we do in the yard:)

I always enjoyed seeing the boys' photographs. That first one of Eric's is a wonderful little landscape.

Katie Isabella said...

MY Saturday has been made all the brighter by seeing one of my favorite things...Eric and Flynn out and about with their camera! I LOVE seeing their pictures. Love seeing those whiskers too as he, Eric, took that picture away from the roof. Excellent addition. I am about to make mom go back and click the wisteria. XXXX

Katie Isabella said...

Me too. My faves.

Katie Isabella said...

They did. And mates if there ever were any!

Marti said...

I love these photos from the cat's perspective.

Cathy Keisha said...

You art is very pretty. Flynn, don't take this the wrong way but Eric is a better photographer. Of course some of his pics have you in them.

Kwee Cats and Art said...

Thank you so much for coming to visit us. We gave Mumsy your message and she said she sure misses you too. Hey, we always loved when you guys wore your cameras. Some of the best photos ever taken! Hugs and love to all you, especially your Mom.

Cleo's Dad said...

What a perfect flashback photo for your art in this post. Those cameras were a great idea, but I'll tell you- if I wore one around here all you'd get would be pictures from around our small apartment, and what a snooze-fest that'd be!

Oh, I love this!! We need to get cameras for our kitties!

Anonymous said...

I LOVED the photos the boys took! Such a great perspecitive!
Nellie had a camera. I think we only ever got 2 pictures that were any good. She wore it a couple of times and then she "lost" the camera on one of her adventures.
Now Im off to do the puzzle.
Love Barb

Those camera shots are so very cool! Now we get to enjoy the countryside from a kitty's point of view! Great memories of what they enjoyed so much! - Tom x

Erin the Cat Princess said...

I love the shot of Snowdon, and that you get close up too—I am not sure I would be that keen myself as them fetes sure look big.
Oooh now I do love that jigsaw and Caturday art pic. You two boys being awesome gingers really make great subjects and so bright and cheery, too.
