THE WHITE CAT Shenandoah Valley of VA 1979


This image was made along one of the many back roads of western Virginia. I was working with the landscape when the cat suddenly jumped out of the bushes on the right and started to run across the highway. I made a chirping sound as the cat crossed the road and it quickly stopped to see where the chirp was coming from. This was the decisive moment, and I was ready to make the exposure. The cat disappeared as quickly as it had appeared. This image was exposed on Ektachrome 64, 2 1/4 roll film. It was a popular commercial film used back in the 1960's and seventies.

This is another example of what is often referred to as the "Decisive  Moment".  Being in the right spot at the right time and knowing when to press the shutter button.
