The Photo Gallery 159: Through the eyes of my phone

Cleo the cat
There are some photographs you would never have in your albums if it wasn’t for your camera phone.
Sometimes you don’t have time to reach for your ‘posh’ camera. Sometimes you’re out walking and you’ve only slipped your phone in your pocket. Sometimes the moment would be completely broken if you reached for anything other than a palm-sized gadget.

And this one is a case in point. I’m sat at my desk at home, tippy tapping away on the keyboard while something prints out on the printer to my right.
I glance over only to see the cat totally and utterly mesmerised by the whirring of the printer.
Any movement will disturb her trance and spoil the moment. She’s skittish at the best of times, so I move my swivel chair round a fraction like a ninja and surreptitiously point the phone at her.
CLICK. The noise breaks the spell and she’s off but I HAVE THE PHOTO!

    You have hit the nail on the head there. You sometimes use your phone for photos to take pictures you wouldn't normally. Not sure I should have taken mine! Cute cat xx

    Gorgeous puss. Some of the best moments are those that you just react to, I agree. No phone, no memory!

    My cat, while I read your blog has been trying to get my attention. All the objects on my desk behind me have been knocked on to floor. I'm now going to tidy up the cat sabotage.

  8. Such a lovely photo – so thoughtful. The camera phone is definitely good for times like that! Using phones seems to have revolutionised the way we all take photos.

    Phones are most definitely the best tool for photographing pets – he's so still and a minute later would have been gone!

    Didn't even realise you had a cat. The poor thing obviously hasn't had a look in since that dog arrived on the scene…
