Daily Photo Reprise: Composition in Black and Green, 2011

Composition in Black and Green

Does this look familiar? This very photo was the inspiration for the calendar of the same name, Compositions in Black and Green, and gave me a focus for the whole series of images.

I loved the look of this image as soon as I saw Bean quietly resting on the edge of the sink, all its shades of green lit by the spring sunlight, Bean’s pleasantly rounded shape contrasting with geometric shadows of the window frame and muntins, and even before I photographed it the idea of a series of photos on this theme was born, including even the name. I already had a number of photos in the theme of black and green and knew I’d get more, and even to this day I am photographing more “compositions in black and green”.

Jelly Bean enjoys being washed in spring sunlight as I enjoy how the pattern of the window muntins falls across the wall, the sink and him. What you can’t hear in this photo is Jelly Bean’s loud, vigorous purr as it echoes in the sink, truly an amazing percussive technique.

A little later this year I’ll be choosing up to a dozen “Compositions in Black and Green” for a set of greeting cards, notebook covers and “black cat wear”, tees, bags and other useful items. Remember the ones you like and let me know.

And so I did! At least the cards and the calendar. See the cards in my Etsy shop, and read about the 2013 calendar here.
