Daily Photo: Lost in the Shadows

black cat on green sink with reflected light.
Mimi, lost in the shadows.

“How is this pose?” Mimi asks, as she moves minutely back and forth in her little patch of beautiful sunlight, direct and reflected from various sources onto her and the wall above her.

Mimi has enjoyed modeling lately, and shows up wherever I am with my camera. This is new for her, and I find it endearing; most of my former photos of her are candids, but she’s never seemed to want to be the subject. This is the new Mimi. And she does choose visually interesting and artsy shots, and I’m not kidding. There was plenty of sun on the windowsill but she jumped down from there to this spot, back up, then back to here, and once she settled in this spot I shot about 10 photos of her. Tell me she’s not a professional.

You’ll find more photos like this one, and plenty of less artsy ones, in my 2013 calendar “Compositions in Black and Green”.
