Spring 2014, I used the HTC One M8, which is an Android smartphone, with—for two years ago—an excellent, low-light camera. There are many newer handsets that are all the more capable, including my iPhone 7 Plus, with its f/1.8 wide-angle lens. But the M8 was a trendsetter for its day.

On the evening of April 14th, at 6:20 PDT, I encountered Farfisa (her real name), and the only meeting of which I am aware, about halfway down Monroe between Cleveland and Maryland. Vitals: f/2, ISO 125, 1/131 sec, 3.82mm.

Update 12-4-16: I saw Farfisa today, meowing for attention on Monroe. I spoke briefly with her owner. She is 11 years old.
