Ansel was my first cat, named after the great landscape photographer Ansel Adams.  If you have’t heard of him, Google him.   Ansel the cat, would sit on the tank and watch me brush my teeth or shave, and after many days, months, perhaps longer, I realized there was a photo waiting to be taken- black cat, white surroundings- always a good starting point for an interesting photo.   Of course he wasn’t too cooperative, and I managed to steal only this one frame before he jumped down.  But I was prepared and got what I wanted.
