The unseasonable heatwave we've had for the last seven days is now officially at an end thank goodness. It's made cats and humans bad tempered and lethargic and it's been stressful enough here without that thank you very much. Someone was so bad tempered that they bit Posky's tail and gave him an abscess which I discovered last night and which then had to be cleaned etc. All things considered he was very good about it! What he's not been very good about is eating his renal food...
Mrs Pod has started yowling again for no fathomable reason. She did however purr like mad when I did a try-out of her Halloween costume on her, which is something. At least it should make the planned Halloween shoot less of a bloodbath than I was anticipating.
I am now on holiday from work for a fortnight so hope to be out and about with my camera (and look out for the publication of the next installment of 'Drama in the Garden!' coming to a blog near you!).
Meanwhile... I was practicing taking some high noise black and white portraits and Mrs P agreed to be my victim. 'High Noise' (never has a description been more apt for a cat) is when you set a high ISO speed on your camera and it gives a grainy effect, it can be quite effective in the right circumstances. I shot these in black and white and they're straight out of camera. Anyway here she is :O)
