Typically, when I'm choosing photos for this blog, I look for shots of the pets that are somehow inspirational or interesting. But let's be honest: These guys get really tired of having a camera in their faces all the time. And they're not at all worried about showing their displeasure.
Case in point: The top photo comes from this photo shoot. Sure, 90 percent of the shots were perfect. But then there was this photo of out-and-out defiance.
Trust me, I have zillions of these. Here are a few samples.
Eamon is the master of the stink eye. I shot these for a Wordless Wednesday post about his attitude, but this shot is even snarkier than the others I chose. Look at the stink eye!
This comes from Liam's birthday photo shoot. He got tired of waiting for me to get the perfect shot of him and his frozen yogurt, so he looked to his dad for a release command. Sneaky boy.
I have no idea what I had planned to use this photo for, but it's clear that Troy doesn't feel like being a model. The contrast between his downtrodden expression and this silly scratching post house just kills me.
I've been taking a lot of photos of Lucy lately, as she's helping me with a Solid Gold sweepstakes starting tomorrow (be sure to check back for epic prizes!). She got so sick of the whole thing that she ran into this little hidey-hole underneath her cat bed. Notice the outstretched paw? That's for batting at me.
In general, I'm blessed to have cooperative pets. But clearly, I need to give them a day off from time to time!
Thanks for looking, and be sure to visit the other blogs in this hop!
