Daily Photo Reprise: The Three Wise Cats, 2011

“We three cats of some Oriental heritage are….”

The Three Wise Cats? Well, the “first” Christmas might be past, but the “second” Christmas is just a few days away—we are half Ukrainian Orthodox here, at least the human is, one of the reasons my holiday lights are still up. So Mewsette, Jelly Bean and Giuseppe are really right on schedule in their “journey”!

What a welcome sight to come home to. I watched as I walked down the street from photographing the new moon; I could see their silhouettes as I came down the hill with my camera.

But photograph three black cats in the window of a darkened room with one bright light in the center of the photo to throw off all the levels, that’s enough to test both me and my camera. I had to use my flash, which I rarely do, especially with the black cats, but it was worth it for this.

Darn it, though, every time I wash the windows because I know I’m going to come home to see at least one of them in the window and want to photograph them (and birds and other outdoor things from inside), it rains or snows again and the windows are covered with water spots.

How much are those kitties in the window? Priceless!
