Canon DSLR Speed Challenge #96 - Translucent

From wikipedia
In optics, transparency (also called pellucidity) is the material property of allowing light to pass through. In mineralogy, another term for this property is diaphaneity. The opposite property is opacity. Transparent materials are clear—they can be seen through. Translucent materials allow light to pass through them only diffusely: they cannot be seen through. Translucency does not include see-through colored objects such as (for instance) emerald in its cut state (which is transparent) but does include things such as frosted glass which allow light to come through but no distinct images.

Be creative and have fun!
This challenge begins when posted, and will end at 6:00 pm Eastern time Monday May 4, 2009. Winner of this challenge will be announced shortly thereafter.

Taken with a Powershot A610 (a surprisingly good little camera), but I believe that disqualifies me.

It's still fun to compete though ;)

Kitty Behind the Curtain

When I saw the theme for this challenge, I thought of this photo. There's a little story to it.
My sister & I went to my niece's to visit and take a few pix of her cat, Kipling. When he went behind the curtain, they suggested I try to get a picture of him. Well, I moved in closer and was trying to get the shot just right. Before I could press the shutter, he jumped at me and the camera through the curtain! After we all stopped laughing, we realized he was still back there, and then I got this shot of him.
