The Tuesday Inspiration: Feline companionship

by Helen Hooker November. 13, 2012 5069 views

Lucy was curled up, waiting patiently, on the sofa when I got home from school this afternoon, and jumped down as soon as she saw me to come and say hello. It??s been one of those grey, overcast days today without a shred of sunlight so I knew I had absolutely no chance of photographing a black cat in a dimly lit room. Luckily, after almost two years of being owned by Lucy (I long ago realised that cats own their humans and not the reverse!) I knew that if I opened the front door she would trot outside and sit down somewhere photogenically. As you can see, she did exactly this and posed beautifully for me on the brick border of our flowerbed!

Thanks to Mike [photoblog.com] for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??changing time??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stéfan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
