Daily Photo: A Busy Weekend

Who doesn’t love a pile of black cats enjoying their post-prandial preening? Spending some feline time this morning.

Yes, it was busy beginning Wednesday, actually, when I had finally finished the last of four new paintings and organized my framing, which was completed Friday early afternoon…I hate working at the last minute, but I had my trusty felines keeping me company all along. I’ll share more photos of them in the days coming up. Above is from Saturday morning, when my show was set up but I still had to make prints of the new paintings, and a few other things, and package it all. But no set up, so I could spend some time in the kitchen with the kids.

And then Sunday I was exhausted, after coming home after midnight two nights in a row, all that lifting and carrying and hanging things and standing, and it was so hot. Sunday was indeed a day of rest, for mind and body.

Indignant feline family wants to know why breakfast is so late. Because I feel like a truck hit me after several days of heavy lifting and carrying and standing in the heat, and still have to unpack my car and put it all away somewhere? For now, breakfast is all we’ve accomplished. Check the expression on Mimi’s face, like, “Really?”

Breakfast is late.

Bella was very pleased I included her in my baking plans this morning. I set everything out to make lemon poppyseed muffins, including two lemons. She couldn’t believe her luck!

Let’s see if I can make this thing run!

Back to the other yellow toy, she shoots and scores!

I'm going to hide it in here.

Good thing I needed to juice them anyway with all that bumping around! I don’t let them in the mix when I’m putting things together, but they always need to see what I’m doing and feel they’ve helped just a little bit.

Feline Variations, 2012

There are never enough hours in the day, nor photos of black cats posing naturally for an impromptu photo shoot.

It began innocently enough with Giuseppe and Jelly Bean sitting side by side on the stool watching the wildlife on the sidewalk in front of the house, namely a mourning dove and a chipmunk.

Then Mewsette joined them. The stool is really not that big and it was quite the task for the stool to hold all three. Time was running short for me in the afternoon, and the card in my DSLR, which would have taken better photos, was full but I could not pass up the opportunity to catch the three of them in natural poses. I sat on the floor with Sunshine on my shoulders—literally—being the perfect foil for their attention.

However, most of the photos were a little blurry or contrasty since the little camera only sees black when I focus on more than one cat at a time. I’ve been looking at vintage photos and playing around with filters in Photoshop again, and wanted to try out a certain combined filters and techniques, so each photo has a different appearance. Please enjoy the slideshow.
