Have You Met The Queen?

QUEEN TRINITY Click on photo to enlarge - © 2007 jim otterstrom

The Calico Queen doesn't approve of photographers, she makes me feel like a paparazzo! She's glaring at me in contempt because I won't let her go outside where all the birds are.

The picture was shot at dusk in the natural light of a window and reminds me that a photo doesn't necessarily need to be sharply focused to be of interest (enlarge it and you might see what I mean). I saved the image at 400 dpi (up from 180) in Photoshop after cropping it about 50% and then increasing the color saturation ever so-slightly, a couple of notches maybe.

Canon S2IS/Manual setting, ISO 50, handheld, 1/3 of a second at F3.5

We have one, pretty grey tabby, Princess Jasmine. Nice shot, pretty cat!

Some cats have beautiful faces, like that one. And cats have a way of dominating the household. I know.

Your blog is so inspiring. I'm pretty much a lurker here, but I know I've posted once before. My own blog was private for a while, but now it's public and there is at least 1 post you may be interested in reading. (Monday March 26th, my birthday, a day I REALLY wished I didn't own a car!) After that incident, although I didn't mention it in my blog, I was thinking about Jimmy. A lot. And I don't even know him. Today I posted about some bushes we removed from around our house, and had I not been reading your blog for the past year or two (it's been a while), I may not have even considered being considerate of the birds who nest here in the warmer months. Like I said, you are very inspiring! We have a very large yard/small field behind our house, and I want to make raised veggie beds, flower beds, and a wildlife "sanctuary". And I have you to thank for my plans! When you have time, or are really bored, check me out sometime. I couldn't find a way to email you through your blog or profile (maybe I'm just not finding it) which is why I'm writing this here. Peace, Janet

Hey this is "me" from the comment above - my profile has moved - if you click on "me" above, you'll see it's a dead end.

Love your blog!

Peace!
