She'll Never Give Up

I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that the lady will never give up trying to take photos of me. Today she resorted to trying to get me to sniff the camera (wasn't interested). She then rubbed it on me as if she was brushing me (oh, puh-leeze).

Her latest photog tactics include slightly crouching, lowering the camera, pointing it in my general vicinity and hoping for the best. The first four of those photos were nothing but black blurs as I moved around, but then she got a few decent ones. Finally, she sat in MY chair, slowly lowered the camera and got two photos of my face.

I'm resigned to my fate.

Mr. Black, maybe you should just let her have a picture or two, then maybe she'll leave you alone. And we'll get to see your handsome face!!

That's right, you are in charge. Make sure it is always on your terms. I am a push over. Show me a treat, and well... I cave in.
Blessings,
Goose

I think you must be related to my Oliver! he does much the same thing and he gives me a similar look!

Prancer Pie said...

The face pics are good and that was an excellent 'tock shot!

Stacy Hurt said...

Nice of you to give her the one. I find they try so much harder when you give them little slivers of false hope.

It is actually quite fun to make photography duties as difficult as possible! I think I have whittled this down to a fine art.

Imagine if the tables were turned, and we followed them around with the stupid camera!

Some of today's photos do a great job of showing how beautifully soft and shiny your fur is, Mr. Black.

You know, sometimes cooperating truly is the easiest approach...

Mr Black...it's hard enough getting a decent shot of any black animal, much less one that isn't cooperating :) Maybe that could be your Christmas/birthday/New Year/Halloween gift to your mom this year :)

Brian said...

Well so far you are winning!

William said...

Mr. Black, part of the fun is frustrating your mom when she insists on taking pictures. You need to remind her that at least she doesn't have to waste money on film.

And actually, now that I think about it, all that saved money should be used on you!

Pretinha said...

Marg said...

Mr. Black, you remind us so much of one of our kitties here who is also black. Her name is BG, Black Girl and she does not like the camera either. She is always moving around. Black cats are hard to take pictures of anyway. But at least we saw two pictures of your handsome face. Take care.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We're glad to see your face, Mr. Black. It would be a strange post with nothing but pix of your butt.

Merry Christmas!

Colehaus Cats said...

Those last two looks are priceless!

Katie and Glogirly said...

Oh Mr. Black...I see you've mastered the fine art of playing hard-to-get. Nice job. You've got to be on your toes when the camera comes out. Gotta make her really work for it.

LOOOVE the final shot, with your beautiful eyes and black furs....

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Yeah, Buddy, sometimes it's best to just give 'em what they want & get 'em out of your fur.

She tried to PET YOU with the camera? Ha ha ha--she must really be desperate! It's sad, really, what they'll do to get a good picture.

You *are* looking good, King Mr. B.

Mum's don't give up with the flashy box.

Avalon Cat Cartoons said...

Well, it is being said that you're more beautiful when you're not posing. It seems to work for you, because you look incredible :)

Daisy said...

Oh I see she's captured you, Mr. Black!

Naturegirl said...

You are a handsome fellow.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Is your Lady boycotting you? Or vice-versa? Ha ha ha!!

Kjelle Bus said...

Mr Black , my advice is just let her take a photo or two or maybe three and then she leaves you alone or mmaybe not if she is just a bit like my hu-mom :)
