Flashback Tuesday, March 13, 2012 – These are hazel catkins and you can also see tiny leaf buds silhouetted against the late afternoon sky. This picture reminds me of the sumi e tradition of Oriental ink painting. It appears to have washes of blues and greys behind the dark black catkins.
Thursday, March 13, 2014 – Today I was able to get some nice photos of our elderly black cat. When she first came to live with us she was solid black with now brown or other colours. Even her nose is black and did not have a single white hair. Much later she got a single white whisker followed a few months later by a matching white whisker. For quite a while that’s all she had. Gradually all of her whiskers turned white followed by white sprinkled through her fur.
It’s always hard for me to get any good photos of her or the other cats. Being contrary creatures they like to move or the other cats get in between a good photo opportunity and the camera. I was happy to get a few of her today. She’s often my computer buddy.
