Akira

Sorry about the late post! WordPress issues again, I’m afraid. Or I guess dinosaur computer issues, would be a more accurate way of putting it. Anyway, I took these photos of Shea’s new kitten on Monday and thought I’d share them. All of these were shot in manual — I’ve been trying to use it more often. It was a challenge, because she’s not your average kitten… she’s a little insane… so most of my pictures are blurry. Shou ga nai (can’t be helped)
Her name is Akira (kind of like Ah-ki-la*), isn’t she pretty?

Akira is a Japanese unisex name meaning “bright” or “clear”. I think it’s more popular for boys, but it really suits her. Shea had a list of names, but it kept coming back to Akira.

*A Japanese “R” is kind of difficult to pronounce. The best way to describe it is as a mixture of  “L” and “R” — or like a rolled “R”, without the rolling. So it’s not really “la”… but it’s not “ra” either… Example:
