Low Light Hakuna
Hakuna, eyes sparkling in the still of the night.

This painterly image of Hakuna was captured late, late at night, as I returned from my weekly poker game. Hakuna was sitting in the den, illuminated only by the dim light coming from the kitchen - a single fluorescent lamp.

Setting the camera up on the tripod would probably have spooked this notoriously skittish kitty. Instead, I simply balanced the camera against the wall and steadied it as best I could for the lengthy (¼ second) exposure.

Note the serious expression and the wide-open, glittering eyes. What could she be thinking, sitting there in the still of the night?
