Cat Portraits

I am a dogs and cats lover, always making a diversion to stroke and pet a cat. My neighbourhood cats below my block were very friendly with their carers and over time, even though I don’t feed them, they would always come to me whenever I called for them.

Today, after coming back from the Dragon Scout Group Campfire ( I would be writing up soon), I decided to capture a few of my favourite cat portraits when I was under my block.

It would always be a challenge to take their portraits, always ready to move and not willing to sit or lie down, even getting their attention to look at my lense was a challenge. All the above photos were taken using my Canon EF 50mm @ f/1.8, utilising my prime lense more often and playing with the bokeh.

Hope you folks love cats too !


  1. I am an animal lover too..
    And like you, I always spend some time with the cats at my void deck before I head home. I took a few shots myself some time earlier and yes, it’s a challenge. Once I was taking a photo up close, he stretched out his paw and tried to scratch my lens.. Ouch! =|

  2. Somehow the cat looks a little melodramatic

    The 2nd shot is my favorite with such a interesting body posture. Beautiful cat

    Hi Cashmere

    Cats are very playful, luckily, your lense is not scratched !

    The cats at my void deck don’t really scratch , they bite !!

    Haha …. still very friendly with me though ๐Ÿ™‚

    looks as though it’s expecting to see / meet someone…

  8. I love cats! Though I shouldn’t be too picky, I like especially those playful, mischievous with yellow white stripes. Hmm, sounds like a tiger. :o)
