Daily Photo Reprise: Five Blue Cats

five cats at door
The January thaw is full of exciting smells!

This year’s January thaw isn’t quite so warm and exciting, but you get your fill of five black…well, blue…cats for the weekend!

Giuseppe comes late to the door I had opened to the warm, rainy afternoon but everyone gets a nose full of the January thaw!

I had been photographing with the internal incandescent light filter set on my camera, which nicely filters out the murky yellow of my kitchen, where we’d been just a few moments earlier, but infuses a blue when in natural daylight. But on a dark rainy day like today the blue was appropriate, so I used it as part of the composition, even enhanced it to be a little more vivid. I also used a film grain filter so dark areas didn’t just fill in.
