A photo by Carolina Meadows resident Frank Baine was recently featured as The Chapel Hill News’ Your Best Shot.
Mr. Baine said the photogenic feline, Mimosa, is one of eight cats belonging to his daughter.
He became interested in photography when he was a teenager and bought his first 35mm Pentax about 50 years ago, using it mostly for family occasions. About six years ago, when resident Joe Mengel started the Photography Club at Carolina Meadows, Mr. Baine became one of the original members. He has since become more involved, participating in the annual photo contest, and has made the transition to a Samsung digital model.

“When we visit the family, I take photos,” he said. “You can’t really pose a cat, but when I visit, I have my camera handy.”
In addition to appearing in the print and web editions of The Chapel Hill News, the photo is currently on display in the Carolina Meadows gallery.
