Smugmug Site added

I recently put some of my photos for sale at: Lemming Photo at SmugMug.

The photos currently there are a small sample and currently I’m only offering what is available there in terms of formats and framing. However, if that turns into a successful venture, I expect to be able to stock frames at home for more custom work.

If you happen to know of a photo of mine, and would like to see it available, don’t hesitate to contact me at mmorgan@lemmingphoto.com
Actually, that goes for any questions regarding the photos.

Couple caveats on the photos, I did remove a lot of print options that would of meant some sort of cropping on the image. Though that does eliminate someone taking one of the panoramic photos and placing it on a smaller bit of paper.

Also, I haven’t seen all of the photos on all types of paper and none of mine have been done on metallic yet. I think some of the photos should do well with that treatment and I’ll be ordering test samples soon.

I want to thank everyone who took time to critique my photos. I learned a lot during that period.

Elizabeth

This lovely little girl is another Best Friends cat that now lives with us. Back when I worked in the adoptions department, I would go to the Salt Lake Super adoption, that is sponsored by Petsmart nationally, but organized by No More Homeless Pets.

May of 2007, I was there and what the no-kill shelters would do at the end of the event, is divide up the animals from the kill shelters that had not been adopted. I had adopted out two cats, so two cats could come back to Best Friends with me. Two sisters of seven months old.
She and her sister hung out in Morgaine’s and I had taken them on a couple adoption runs, but they were older than a kitten, and younger than an adult.
At the time, one of our at home cats, Habibi was being a Butt to the other cats and we were thinking he needed a foil.
At an adoption event in July, I wound up adopting out Elizabeth’s sister near the end of the event. I knew Elizabeth would be able to handle Habibi and they were about the same age.
So I adopted her and since I was flying direct from Phoenix to New York, Lezlie delivered her home for me.

And my prediction was correct, Elizabeth stands up to Habibi very well.

Small Stuff

Pillbug

This little guy was out near upper calf creek falls near Escalante, Utah. I didn’t know they existed in Utah, but knew of them from growing up in California.

Desert Mushroom

Something just to remind me this blog exists.

This mushroom was found on a desert walk and fairly dried out from exposure.

Maple

Continuing with the cats at home, Maple our cat with the most seniority, though not our oldest.

Maple is a cat from Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood, Oregon near Portland. We adopted her as a young mother. We had originally gone to CAT to meet a feline that had Cerebellar Hypoplasia, but there was no connection with her, but since we were there, we had to look around.

My wife, Jennifer, felt an immediate connection with Maple and she’s been with us ever since August 9, 2003.

And another in the series of shots today:

Habibi

Continuing with the cats of the house.

Habibi came from Beirut in August of 2006 as a three month old kitten. BETA was the group that originally took him in after he was found in an engine block, by a woman named Nadia. He was named Nado at that time.
My wife and he fell in love, so he came to our home soon after.

Best Friends brought over 295 animals from BETA, Habibi was one of them. For that history, the magazine entry from the NOV/DEC Issue is a good source.
