Neighbourhood Watcher by FurLined
Neighbourhood Watcher
Loki keeps watch for any passing cats, dogs, humans, pigeons, crows, magpies, etc, etc.

I photographed this using an old Mitakon 24mm f/2.5 lens at f/2.5. The lens was a bit of a random acquisition in a box of cheap camera junk I got through ebay. It's manual focus of course, but my D7000 has an aperture coupling ring so does meter on it. It's actually not too bad, even wide open.

Theo has no qualms about barging in on a warm patch of sunshine. Loki takes exception on this occasion. See also this photo from a couple of years ago:

Liriodendron tulipifera
This North American tulip tree was planted in Kew Gardens in the 1770s, apparently.

You may use this as stock for non-commercial purposes but please give credit if you do.

I also have an account with Flickr on which I publish more of my photos (I tend to restrict what I upload to deviantART to those with a bit more artistic or aesthetic merit).

Creative Commons

I've set quite a few of my images to be licensed as Creative Commons. If you wish to use one that is CC be sure to credit me by name and by linking to my dA profile or to the original picture here on dA. I'm open to granting permission to older images which I've not set to be CC, so feel free to ask about a given image.

Cool - thanks for giving credit for the three of mine you used :). The first animation frame you've got my name on though, with the spotted cat with white socks and face (Bengal cross?), isn't one of my photos! You've got the two of Theo and one of Misty with my name against correctly :).

Oh yes, I know. That's my personal photo. I guess I accidentally put your name into that one as well. Thanks for letting me know!

You do your cats' beauty justice; I love your photos. Would it be okay if I sketched some of your photographs for anatomy practice? I can credit you for references if necessary. 
FurLined Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2015
Thank you - that's a lovely thing to say :).

I'm happy for you to sketch for practice - if you post them up on dA I'd be interested in seeing them (I'm always interested in seeing the use my photos get put to!). For just practice sketches I don't mind so much about credit, but it's still nice to be credited and if you think the references are useful then crediting the references may help others find them too!

Okay, thank you. If I get around to doing so, I'll credit you and give you a link. :)

Under the creative commons that you have chosen are we allowed to reference your photography and sell what we draw or paint?

Hi there,

I use the non-commercial version of the CC license - that's in part so people can't just make money directly off my photos with little work of their own, and also because some of the photos I've taken were taken in circumstances such that I don't have permission to grant commercial usage of the photo (e.g. photos at at zoos).

However I'm happy to consider individual cases, and often for works using photos for reference (drawings/paintings) I'm able and happy to grant permission for my photos to be used for such works which can be sold, especially as I love seeing what people do based on the photos.

So if you send me a private message saying which photos you may want to use then I can have a think and reply to let you know :)

Finally I want to express appreciation for you actually checking - not everyone does that, so thank you!

Thank you for getting back with me :) 

I will PM you on some photos for drawing reference soon :)
