Inge‘s cat, peering suspiciously at us from behind the herb pots, August 2008

This photo is the first in a series called Saturday Snapshots which I hope to make a weekly feature.  I find that I have loads of beautiful non-food photos that I’d like to share with you but never get the chance, so in the tradition of my friends Ilva (who regularly posts her gorgeous and inspiring non-food photos) and Kalyn (who recently started a Friday Night Photo feature to improve her photography), I have started Saturday Snapshots.  Think of it as something beautiful to look at every week over your Saturday morning coffee :)


This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs featured.  If you like this or any other photo featured in Saturday Snapshots, why not buy it as a greeting card or print in my RedBubble store?

Oh that’s a great shot!
I might do something like this myself, you have inspired me!

What a beautiful picture! I wish I was so talented, though the amazing photos on blogs out there are encouraging me to try a bit harder anyway. I look forward to seeing more of this series (especially if they have cats in them!)

Nice shot!

Great photo – some talent it would seem and away from the kitchen too!

Very sweet photo. The cat looks like it’s in deep thought…

Great idea and photo, you really caught the essence of a cat there! Now I am looking forward to next Saturday!

Incredible idea! I wouldn’t be able to compete.
(It would be cheating to sneak in pics from a photographer son, :)anyway.
It’s pouring in Cape Town this weekend – but I love it!!!!

I’m intrigued by your blog name.
My husband is South African and when I first visited SA (Cape Town), he introduced me with cook sister. Apparently its his favorite snack, and off course you can only get it in SA. Anyway, he missed it so much, so his cousin bought a few for him. Back home, I tried to make it and off course failed! If I only knew that this type of snack/cookie, you only leave it to the professional to make it. I’m not sure weather its true, but according to his cousin, no body really make cook sister at home. Cheers.

It’s me again,
I was too excited to talk about cook sister, I forgot that I was going to make a comment about the beautiful cat behind the herb pots. Nice photo!

Sweet picture. And makes me miss having a cat even more. Like the Satruday Snapshot idea and look forward to seeing more!

Jeanne, Blue thouroughly approves of her closeup Ms. De Mille. Dakota would love a copy too to put in her room. Kid and kitty both currently ensconced on the sofa watching the dog whisperer.

The photo made me sigh. Very lovely. :)


Susan from Food Blogga September 2, 2008 at 1:53 am

That photo is fabulous, Jeanne. Saturdays just got better.
