Monochrome Madness Challenge 31

I’ve missed a couple of months of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness while I’ve been away, but now that I’m home here’s my latest submission. It’s Sid the Burmese, having a very intense conversation with my brother-in-law.

Lit from within

This was a flower in my sister’s garden in France, captured in the early morning sun. I love shooting into the light, and these flowers were near a wall, so there was some reflected light as well, and I love reflected light almost as much. With a flower that color combined with that kind of light, it just begged me to give it a little tweak to enhance the glow… 🙂

This is another image in my Cats in the Sun series, a follow up to an earlier post. These two barn cats, Ricky and Hiro, were engaged in a rather intense discussion over squatting rights.

Everywhere I’ve gone during the past week, thistles are busy preparing for the change in season… I’m sad to see their beautiful purple heads disappearing for the year, even if they do morph for a while into these beautiful puffballs.
