Hugo says cleanliness is next to godliness, even if your favorite place to hang out is a cardboard box.
When Wendell is feeling feisty I call him Rumpelteazer. This photo makes it look like he is never feisty. (Rumpelteazer was suggested to be male in the original TS Elliot poem “Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer” and then became female in the broadway production of Cats. I don’t care.)
People sometimes asked what camera I am using. To be 100% honest this question bothers me, like I have a pile of magical beans or something and if I tell you where to find the magic beans your photos will be magical too. The majority of the photos on this account are shot with my Iphone 4s. Someone drove into my car at a stoplight in 2011 and since then it is extremely painful for me to use my DSLR for long periods of time. Since I am on summer break I have been trying to use the DSLR more because I am still actively trying to fix myself. Since I do not use it much I have an older one from 2007, a Canon EOS 30D. I use Canon lenses with it that I got in 2001-2003 for my film SLR. This obviously makes my equipment ancient in terms of contemporary digital photography. The camera has always had a dead pixel in the center of every photo that I have to remember to edit out. I think what people REALLY what to know is that I have multiple degrees in Photography and Digital Art and I am a Digital Art professor. I can make things look good no mater what camera I use. I do my editing in Photoshop on my computer or I make all my own filters primarily with PS Express and Facetune. I have given public lectures on the topic of the positives and negatives of different mobile device photo editing softwares. Sorry I don’t have any magical beans. I shot my undergrad thesis exhibit on a wooden box pinhole camera that one of my professors helped me make. Unless you are paying me I am so bored of camera talk. In the future I am just going to direct people to this post so we can move on. Can we get back to talking about sphynx now? LOOK AT THIS AWESOME CAT!
I put together a little 4 second video because Wendell and I talked about it and we thought it was important for people to see the uncensored “Coffee” photo if they really wanted. You will also get to see the other censor options I tried out. You’re welcome.
(I made this a video instead of a gif so that you wouldn’t have to see it if you are hanging out with your great grandma.)
"I love this box. Some might go as far as to say it is my favorite box. It was just my box for a while but then my brother Wendell started climbing on a chair so he could reach it and now it is his box too. I let him share it with me because I like to absorb his body heat while we sleep. He is good for a snuggle! Would you like to come over sometime and snuggle in this box with me? I bet you have a little extra body heat I could absorb."
