Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge: Week 12

DSCF7952

Good morning from another wet and miserable Hastings morning.

Last night I was going through my photos to see what I could post today and found these photos.  I loved the post from Sonel’s Corner yesterday but of course I can’t do any exotic pets, but I do find strange cats coming up to me on my walks so of course I take photos of them.

They all seem to be attracted to me and come up and pose for me.

This cat was gorgeous and hung around for a long time for me to take some photos of it from it’s best side.

Then there was this rather regal looking Siamese cat.  I haven’t really seen it since.

It reminded me of this quote about Egyptian cats being worshipped so I scrapbooked it.

Cats

Rather apt I thought.

A word a Week Photo Challenge – Pose with Ese’s Voice

For this weeks challenge  A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Pose  by Ese’ s Voice I have gone for pets.  My children are weary of me trying to take photos of them so disappear when I get the camera out.  A different story with family pets I come across out walking.  This elderly dog just sat posing for me.

Cats just seem to gravitate towards me when I am out walking.  They don’t mind the camera at all.  This cat just sat on the rubbish bin quietly while I managed to get a lot of different poses.

This cat just watched me but I still managed to get some good poses.

This cat was unimpressed with me standing there taking photos of it.

This cat is not happy at all with me.

This was our neighbours cat.  I have used other photos of it previously for another challenge.

Sonel’s Split-toning challenge – animals

Good morning from a coolish Hastings today.

This week’s challenge from Sonel’s Corner Split-Toning Photo Challenge is animals.  We don’t have any pets but I am always looking around for any animals – feathered or furred to take photos of.

This is the original photo of a neighbour’s cat taken in our backyard.

Using both Photoshop and FX Photostudio Pro I used a vignette to get rid of the grass around the cat and then enhance the cat itself.

Using the colour filters is a lot of fun.

I loved this challenge and how it can completely change the photos into something new.
