The weekly photo challenge – seasons – sent me outside for photos today. It is in the mid 30’s so not too bad. The challenge asked for photos of whatever weather was present in our world right now, and for us it is that grey and white season when winter is more than midway done,…Read more »
In my world right now, we are awash in shades of white and grey. Even the beautiful colored lights of the Christmas season are down. I look at all the empty tree limbs, and imagine them filled with the green of spring and summer. This week’s photo challenge, by someone else who is awash in…Read more »
As the first really cold days chill our bones, I think of all the cats who live outside. The community cats don’t want to live in our homes, but the winter weather is tough on those guys. I am grateful for all of those who leave food and water and shelter for them, and think…Read more »
It wasn’t what I was trying to shoot…but it ended up as a funny oops kind of photo anyway! A response to this week’s photo challenge: oops!

At 15, she’s showing her age in many ways, most noticeably for photographs, with the increasing “sugar face,” as my sister…Read more »
I’m not sure if these photos say something about my own victory, or the victory of some very persistent cats. This week’s photo challenge asks for images of victory, and both of these cats presented themselves to me as kittens – ones that wouldn’t have survived had I not taken them in. Minh, our orange…Read more »
This week’s photo challenge — boundaries – reminded me the early days of Annie, our little feral kitten. Brought in as a very sick kitten at about seven months old (very late for an outdoor cat to feel comfortable inside with people) boundaries were critical to her. She needed them as a way of maintaining…Read more »
The photo challenge this week asks for two halves of a whole. I thought right away of these community cats, clearly buddies that make a whole somehow.
What could be fresher than color, and lots of it, after the dreary winter greys and browns? This week’s photo challenge asks us to show something fresh. Here (off-topic again!) are some more photos from Longwood Gardens, where we spent an afternoon enjoying fresh colors.
