A Righteous Yawn, With Lots of Whiskers, 2011

black cat yawning
Mr. Sunshine’s big whiskers.

I’d give a big yawn too if I was lazing in the sun on my bed in the middle of an afternoon.

I just loved the way Mr. Sunshine’s whiskers caught the light, the compositions of dark and light in large soft areas and the clarity of that detail. It almost looks abstract at first. In this case, the colors in the photo were distracting from the composition, so I desaturated it and made it a black and white image.

  • his whiskers show off so well…I have really nice white long ones too…they are my fave part of my face…purrr…did you see my post yesterday about my new spot to get sun puddles in the AM? I am getting lots more brave in my furrever home…still long road…but have tons of support from Dad and Mom and furrriends like you and your anifamily

    • I was worried! Nice to see you again. And it’s funny–I was signed up to read your posts, but perhaps when I changed out e-mail addresses when I was setting up the new site my subscription was dropped! Signed up again. Have a great day, and we hope you have more sun puddles to enjoy!
