Having set up our tripod to capture crisp images of the Chelsea Grays in the darkling indoor light of a soggy autumn afternoon, we inadvertently stumbled onto the makings of an animated GIF of Tiny, above, using the Think System to evoke the magic words -- Want your suppers? -- that will conjure up the bowls of Friskies "Special Diet." Because the camera stayed in one place, the backgrounds of successive exposures were identical, allowing the animated effect.
Is it time yet? In the tense moments leading up to the evening meal, we applied the feline portrait photographer's version of "watch the birdie" to get our subjects to look alert for the camera, speaking animatedly in a voice akin to the one we use when we ask, just before heading for the kitchen at 3:45 pm, "Want your suppers?"
While Tiny studied our face and verbal nuances for signs of food futures, the Babe tuned out atop the cable box.
Is it time yet?
Update: Time to head over to Modulator's Friday Ark #160.
