Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge: Week 39 A friendly neighbour

Cat 2 (640x485)

Cat 1 (474x640)

Where I am living now we are not allowed any pets.  But that doesn’t stop this cat from making him/herself at home.

This house is a cat friendly house with 2 cat doors so I found it inside last night. There is something about me that attracts cats to me.  I adore them so it is hard not being able to have one, but this will do instead.

Here is Michelle’s blog to find out more about this challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Floral Macros

Macro Flower 3 (640x531) (2)

Good morning from a cold Hastings.

I enjoyed Cee’s tips last week on taking floral macros.  I have always struggled with this.  My camera is mega slow after I dropped it so need to have perfect conditions to take really good shots. I have a lot of problems getting the right depth of field.  So I took her advice and zoomed in as much as I can and then cropped back to get my final images.

These were taken in our garden.  For the first image I wasn’t happy with the colour tone so used a filter to make it more interesting.

I still tend to use filters to get a more interesting final image.  I suppose though, it is all about developing my own style too.  I really miss my Mac apps though.

These were all edited with Photoscape.
