    Indeed that is the case, Peter. Our last two cats were allowed to roam freely via a small cat door we had installed. However both one day never came back, much to my wife's ongoing dolor. We live in the middle of a state forest populated by all sorts of fauna, many of which prey on any small animal - cats included. Foxes, black bears, snakes - venomous and constrictor - the odd coyote, and raptors like hawks, eagles, and owls. My wife insisted this cat remain an indoor cat as a result.

    However I do allow him the occasional walk around the yard, which he seems to enjoy but also is rather intimidating. He rarely strays more than a few feet from me as we go, and frequently turns and rubs my leg so I will give him a reassuring scritch on the head. It's kind of curious really that he's not more inquisitive as a very large, young male. I should think he'd be champing at the bit to go exploring far afield for mice and rival cats. I sometimes wonder if he didn't suffer some trauma in the outdoors prior to our adopting him, and he remains skittish as a result.

    Can’t blame the cat as bears and snakes would put me off as wellDangerous Spouse Pics

    A few shots for the Leading Lines challenge. I was going originally going to use the previous picture of the tree with the Dutch angle, but now I'm not so sure.

    I live right off the Appalachian Trail at the top of a hill. At the bottom of my hill the trail crosses a cattle and dairy cow pasture (with a sign warning, "HIKERS! PLEASE DON'T APPROACH THE COWS!" at the entrance, lol). A local group of volunteers maintain the wooden planks that were laid down to keep people from sinking into the muck.

    Lol. The local camera club I belong to holds a monthly challenge much like we hold our weekly one. The challenge for our November 2nd meeting coming up is "long exposure of moving water using an ND filter". No surprise, every member I talked to was planning on heading to one of the many streams, lakes, or waterfalls around here to take the stereotypic smooth water shot.

    I decided to try something different:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-rain-man.jpg

    By the way, that is the best rain hat I've ever owned. Got it in Mountain Home, Arkansas, where my MIL lives. Good thick leather, and even foldable. Had it a decade now, and my head stayed completely dry here through take after take after take...after take.....after take.....

    God, I did so many takes! This was one of the harder shoots I've ever done. I'm holding a remote shutter release in Bulb mode there, trying to stay as still as possible. This was the best I could manage, but with the water hitting my head and needing to breath occassionally, there is definitely gonna be motion blur even though I was initially in focus. There were two softboxes set up at 45 degree angles left and right to try to cut down on shadows. I metered for the back wall first, setting the exposure to keep it darker than me.

    I sure was clean when the shoot was over!

    My first thought when seeing that was ICM (intentional camera movement), which is in right now.
