Zoom In Zoom Out #5

My choice for this week is a simple everyday photo:

Kira sleeping in the rocking chair

But it always makes me smile when she sleeps with a paw covering her eyes. She snores too!

And I took a bit of advice that Carola left in the comments on last week's photo.  I found the manual focus button on my lens. Voila! I can still have that pretty paisley pillow but with a softer focus in the background, and my diffuser sticks in sharper focus. Thanks for the lesson Carola!
I am  linking up with  Helena's Zoom In Zoom Out meme.  Click on the link to see what other people are photographing this week!

Oh she's a pretty cat - yeah for manual focus too :)

Karen said...

Love the close-up. Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to sleep like that? After seeing your diffuser sticks, I'm on the look-out for pretty ones for our bedroom.

Cheri, I'm glad that it worked out with the manual focus button! The result is lovely and those little green balls really pop!

What a great ZIZO and with the added bonus of the little green balls! and... you will get more of the photos you want now that you have found the manual focus button. What fabulous colours in your cat.

Great job on the manual reshoot.
And I love both the ZI and the ZO of your kitty.
