Tuxedo Cat Patchouli in the Yard
You don't see much of our tuxedo cat, Patchouli, on the blog because she is a little bit of a hermit. She is also a big scaredy cat. The weather was really pretty though for a few days and she ventured out in the yard with me. I was out taking photos of the spring flowers. Yes, we already have some spring flowers. I always look at my calendar as soon as lent starts and run outside to get photos of my Lenten rose (hellebores.)
She really is such a pretty kitty cat, it's a shame she isn't more laid back. Her black and white fur makes her tricky to photograph though! If I meter for the black, her white blows out and if I meter for the white the rest of her looks to dark. So, I usually try to get a sort of happy middle ground.
Shortly after I took these photos, it got cold again. Then rainy. So, Patchouli and I are back at work inside where we are nice and warm. Hopefully she will venture out again soon.
For our artsy photo, I used Topaz Labs
