C for ABC Wednesday







The child was about three and the kitten about the same number of months. The setting was a wooden deck with a large gathering of people and the original photo showed these two cuties nestled in a bundle of legs, feet and shoes.

I cropped it, then split out the two important objects and embedded them on a fractal altered to match the colors of the boy's shirt. It took me forever. It was eventually published in I Love Cats Magazine and remains one of my favorites. I like it so much I may post it again for K(itten). :)



ABC Wednesday, Round 4, offers C for the prompt letter.

Real cuties for sure; and cleverly presented.

Oh so sweet. I really enjoyed this photo. FYI...the wonderful Eucalyptus trees are still on the side of 101 freeway in Camrarillo. I remember earlier days when they were in the middle of the highway but as the road expanded and the freeway was widened they kept them at the side on the frontage road...

Does it mean that the original photo is from film (you only became digital since Christmas?). Then, indeed, it must be a lot of work. But the result is perfect, such an adorable picture.
