shot 64. Unfortunately, the best.

Took off my glasses and walked around the house. I have four cats that were located at various locations that I thought I knew where they were. They all moved. My son then said "Dad, what are you doing and I opened my eyes. Well, I forgot I was holding my glasses and had my hands out in front of me to feel for obsticals and this is the shot I got when he said that. As a result I feel this is worth at least an 8 as the shot was in the theme 100% but I know it will not be seen as that special. This was hard to do and the result was for me a real surprise. Anything below a six is just not just ;-)

I'm not sure why this didn't score higher. You have a nice title and it's a wonderful natural moment. 11 comments for 1114 votes is a good ratio.

I know that expression oh too well. LOL A slice of life captured on your memory card. I like it. If I were looking at symbolism, the plug would certainly play a big part.
