Cats on Tuesday...

There has been a lot of bad behaviour in cat-land this week, mainly involving Ralph and Charlie.  They've been little sods!  Pepper has been an angel as always (her words), and Mrs P has just done her own thing and screamed at anyone who tries to get her to deviate from this.  So on with the pics.

Pepper...
Thinking angelic thoughts...

Charlie...
Thinking devilish thoughts...

Ralph...
Just not thinking...

Mrs P...
Thinking of smacking them all 
around the head so that she
can get some peace and quiet.

Cats on Tuesday...

Good Morning Campers! No we have not deserted blogland, merely been extremely busy with photo stuff (including a project so secret that Charlie would have to bring the claw of doom to bear on you if you heard so much as a whisper about it).  Anyway... we're all still here and the cats are chomping at their collective bits (not that they have bits, but you get the picture), to bring you their latest pics.  So without further ado...

The weather was actually warm enough for
Mrs P to venture out into the garden...
This was just before Ralph learnt the hard way
that it is not a good idea to try and play with her
tail through the bench.

Charlie went to the vets for his blood test
and was pronounced as still in remission from diabetes - yay!
He celebrated by performing a burlesque routine with a
feather boa and a catnip carrot that is still
the talk of the neighbourhood.

Ralph met with the Tiny Buddha on Pepper's advice.
Her words were rather brutal being along the lines of
'Ralph, you're an idiot, 
go and ask the Buddha for help now'.  
We like to think she meant it kindly.

Here he is thinking about it all.

Pepper has been meditating in the garden
on developing compassion and tolerance toward Ralph.
It's a work in progress...

Of course she has to take time out from
her meditation practice to go be a supermodel.
A cat's work is never done.

Hazy Shade of Winter...

Oh ha bloody ha!  We haven't had winter as such this year - just one continuous downpour with gales thrown in for some light relief.  It's vexed me intensely.  I had to resort to the archives for these...

Cats on Tuesday... (yes it's late again)

I'm sorry ok?!? There was this thing involving snakes - and no the cats aren't impressed with that excuse either...

... as you can tell by Pepper's reaction.

Charlie was totally depressed about my
inability to keep them in the spotlight...

... and he was livid to find a large
canvas of a d*g in the living room.
(A client had ordered it so I've
put it away safely until I get
to deliver it).

... but perked up when he
discovered a cat's paw under the curtain
that needed to be attacked.

I found an old soft focus filter in my camera bag from
when I used to shoot film, and used it on Mrs P.
She was slightly mollified but not enough to
want to know me.

Ralph was just Ralph...
He tried to look vaguely menacing
for a moment...

...before becoming distracted
and running into the garden to
to try and catch a pigeon.

'I'd do Anything for Love'...

Well no I probably wouldn't actually :-)  I don't do Valentine's Day - it always smacks of commercial drivel hyped up by purveyors of tacky greetings cards.  

In the spirit of this week's song however, Charlie and Ralph donned a glass heart trinket.



And if I change it to 'I'd do Anything for Photography', then I can include these two pics I got yesterday when I met up with a model to take some snake pics for her - and (wait for it) I held a snake.  I was amazed at how beautiful they were, so I did learn something!

My Day...

Monday to Thursday I work in an office - I won't bore you with the details lest you start snoring.  Friday is MY day - I get to do whatever I want and it usually involves a camera somewhere along the way.

So my day usually starts with one a few of these (bokeh optional)...



Followed by trying to herd some of these...

 

This last Friday I headed over to Thornton Reservoir...


Where there were quite a lot of these about...


Then I went to browse a second hand bookshop in a church and re-charge the batteries in their coffee shop...







Friday afternoon I might work on processing or I might just play with my camera a bit more...


Before thinking of more of this...




Then often ending the day with a view similar to this...
