Stay Curious

Maybe it’s that long tail that he just does not seem to fit into yet.
Or the little nick in that left ear from an unknown cause.
It could be that as he looks out the window his attention is so focused,
so intent on whatever it is out there that you can’t get him to pay attention to 
anything else.
Maybe he’s in The Zone.

I love the PBS commercials that encourage us to Stay Curious,
to explore something new, expand our horizons. 
How do you incorporate that into your own life? Is it through books,
through exploring the world by traveling, or maybe by doing something
creative in the kitchen or at your art space?
It’s no surprise that my camera helps me find those new horizons. Yet 
there are other creative adventures I’m hoping to pursue very soon.
I’ll keep you posted.

In a few days I’ll be participating in another of Kat Sloma’s photography courses,
hoping to get into that Zone again.

  1. The first thing I noticed was that little nick in his ear. What a great photo! You can feel his total concentration even from the back. I love the beautiful, soft but recognizable background, too. Lovely!

  2. Deb,
    What a lovely reminder of the benefits of curiousity and how keeping it in the forefront of our lives can enhance our creativity. Such a wonderful image – he certainly does appear to be "in the zone".

    Looking forward to starting class this week!

  3. Love your photo – the way he's looking up with the little nick in his ear is so cute. I'm not doing Kat's course this time around but I'll be really interested to see how you get on. Have fun.:)

  4. How cute and small he is. What a wonderful photo of being in the zone. My pets do this too, just too cute.

    Have fun in your class and I can't wait to see what you will share with us. It's always something good.

    Have a great day!

  5. Lovely photo!! Exploring with the camera encourages me to stay curious. I'm always finding things to photograph and then wanting to find out more information about it! Looking forward to our photo course with Kat!!

  6. Oh, Deb. I can hardly stand how sweet this is. I love that little cat. I absolutely love how his little head tips slightly up and to the side. He's definitely in the zone (as you clearly are with that camera in hand).

    Your photos capture an essence & beauty that need no words. I truly feel honored to be on the receiving end of what you capture & create.

    Thank you.

  7. What a sweet capture of your kitty!! And – all we need to do is look to them to remind us of our own innate curiosity. A gift and a challenge – both – to 'stay curious'.
