    I think macro photography is cool too (though I didn’t know the name for it until reading your post just now 🙂 ). As long as no one macro photographs my face. Some things should be kept micro. But your Leo looks gorgeous!

  7. Cathy, I love that you didn’t include the entire face but just this expressive bit. Nicely done as always.

      Thanks so much, Janet. Yes, the highlights and shadows emerged well in this. Leo was sleeping on the floor by a French door and I loved the sidelight. Fortunately, he didn’t even stir!

    Leo totally knows you’re taking his picture. He’s pretending to be asleep, but can’t keep himself from smiling.

    Sweet subject. I suspect Leo smiles all the time. I’m linking so my readers can enjoy him as well.
