Daily Photo Reprise: Feline Variations, 2012

three black cats in sepia
Three Black Cats.

There are never enough hours in the day, nor photos of black cats posing naturally for an impromptu photo shoot.

It began innocently enough with Giuseppe and Jelly Bean sitting side by side on the stool watching the wildlife on the sidewalk in front of the house, namely a mourning dove and a chipmunk.

Then Mewsette joined them. The stool is really not that big and it was quite the task for the stool to hold all three. Time was running short for me in the afternoon, and the card in my DSLR, which would have taken better photos, was full  but I could not pass up the opportunity to catch the three of them in natural poses. I sat on the floor with Sunshine on my shoulders—literally—being the perfect foil for their attention.

However, most of the photos were a little blurry or contrasty since the little camera only sees black when I focus on more than one cat at a time. I’ve been looking at vintage photos and playing around with filters in Photoshop again, and wanted to try out a certain combined filters and techniques, so each photo has a different appearance. Please enjoy the slideshow.

      Annie, that 1950s rural is exactly what I was looking for! And the van Gogh-y look too. Wish I had more time for fun like this.
