This June headline in the Huffington Post –The cutest photo ever taken, sure got a lot of attention. It was the cutest photograph ever made for about 15 to 20 seconds when someone took another photograph just as cute. Nevertheless, for the suspended time being, this photograph has a lot going for it, especially the purity of youth. Technically we could make noises regarding the sharpness, the busy background and so forth but this is simply not important. The key here is the Garfield Moment we get from the kitten’s eyes. It is all there. Words are not necessary.
The lesson here is that photographs do not need to be perfect to be great. Everyone with a camera gets to make a shot like this now and then, so get out your camera, crank up the ISO have at it. Every 20 seconds, you might be next! Do however make an effort to watermark or mark ownership of your image in some way; we searched and searched and were unable to find the creator of this photo. What a shame!
