Daily Photo Reprise: Five Blue Cats

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

Last year on this date we had the doors and windows open!

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.

    Nothing more interesting than to try to figure our just what are they thinking. They are the most inquisitive ninjas I think around. They all stick together. You are right about the last year’s thaw. Wish those Ninja’s could bring a quick thaw to this week.

      I wouldn’t mind having the basement door open, Bernie!
