Who We Are

Look Closely

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with a question for you.  Take a look at the photo we posted yesterday for Wordless Wednesday.  That was taken with the new camera.  Now compare that with this shot, via the iPhone:

Me and Cam.  Being VERY good.

Notice any difference?  I mean other than the fact that I'm gazing longingly at the counter where the treat containers are instead of looking at Mom.  

Give up?  They're pretty similar, and the iPhone shot isn't bad!  I must say, though, I like the one taken with the camera better!  Why?  Is it because there is more detail in our fur on the other one, and the focal point is such that the background is sort of blurred out?  No, not really.  That's nice, but not why I like it better.

With the camera, Mom has to back up way more (she left her 55-250mm lens on) and make all kinds of crazy adjustments --  so it takes longer!  And when it takes longer ... what does that mean?  MORE TREATS for Mom's favorite models!!!  Thaaaaaaat's right!  This new camera might not be so bad after all!

What's up with all of you today?  I think my mom should do another photo shoot with me and Cam -- don't you?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. the colors seem more vivid in this one...but you can't go wrong taking pics of you two cuties :)

  2. We are big fans of when Mom is futzing around with her camera - always more goodies for us! And when she decides she doesn't like one setting, she's got to take ANOTHER picture.... Trust us on this one - encourage your Mom to mess around with her new camera A LOT! :-)

  3. Thanks for the heads up ... my mom has one of those adjustable cameras too but she has quit using it as much. I think I am going to hint at photo quality and get her to start using the big camera again so I can get MORE TREATS!!!!!

  4. We just love looking at your faces no matte what momma is using.

  5. We just love the detail in the new camera Maggie...our Mama only uses the iPhone when she wants to "sneak up on us". She says the minute she points her big camera out, we start posing!...Well...DUH, big camera = treats!!!

  6. See, modeling has its benefits! I love it when Momma decides to take some pictures.

  7. we are in favour of more photoshoots of you lovely girls!!

  8. So true! I like how much brighter their eyes pop with the camera photo too.

  9. wait wait wait....we are all about the treats...but MORE pictures by the mom??? not so sure about that :)

  10. We noticed the difference in your furs. Our mommy has one of those big cameras but has only used it on us twice in a year. Hope she doesn't get any ideas!

  11. Oh yes and of course no treats no pose and plenty of back ups means more for you. We go with that option. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Yes, the new camera takes better pictures, but you have to be so good for so long! There BETTER be more treats!

  13. Well, we don't much about cameras. We just pose for the flashy beast and get some treats. Both photos are great - and of course you girls look lovely in both.

  14. More treats is always a winner! Do you get tunas?

  15. IPhones do take pretty good pictures too. But the camera wins
