This is my daily (and nightly) perch — on the pull-out platform of the desk in my office. One of my most important duties is supervising my human and this is the best place to do it. I can look over her shoulder to make sure she isn’t slacking off — looking at her bank account or writing about something that doesn’t involve me. Keeping my Twitter and Facebook accounts updated is way more important than paying bills and working on her own stuff. Judging from the look on my face here, she must have been doing something wrong.
This photo was actually sort of difficult to accomplish. It’s an evening shot and since my human wanted to use natural light and no flash, she had to set the camera on a tripod and use a very slow shutter speed. She also had to use the timer to keep the camera from shaking when she pushed the button. It was hard for me too because I had to sit still long enough to keep from causing a blur. I think the result is pretty nice. I might like to use it as my formal portrait. What do you think?
I spend so much time sitting up here that I often have breakfast and snacks while I work. I know you’re not supposed to eat at your desk, but when I’m on a roll, I like to keep going. Of course, sometimes the results are disastrous. You might have seen this video before, but in case you haven’t, you can see what can happen if I’m not careful.
