Indoors – pet project

We’ve some short, intermittent dry spells but for the most part, the weeks of rain continue which makes it less and less desirable to venture outdoors with a camera, especially as taking photos with an umbrella can be awkward. So interiors are one idea for rainy days and in that it’s worth turning the camera on our pets.

This is Moog. She came to stay for a few days whilst my daughter was away, but this has extended to some fostering time whilst she and I decide if permanence is what we both want.

As a bird lover, I would not normally welcome having a cat around but she is 16 years old and has little interest in activity, let alone the chase. She may be a little deaf too. I especially like her affectionate spirit and pleased to say that she has settled in easily and happily.

In daylight, it is evident that Moog is not a completely black and white cat, but tends towards some ginger. Even so monochrome suits her.

The Ricoh GRiii has 4 B&W modes including Normal, Hi, Hard and Soft. Moog disappears with too much contrast so the above two are shown in Normal mode. But in order to emphasize her gentle nature, those paws are shot in soft B&W

Wishing everyone a Happy Saturday and wondering what others are doing, photography wise, during rainy days. Since wet weather is forecast for the foreseeable future, I might try more indoor photography projects from here
