Silhouette

He’s probably the sweetest member of our family. He’s been with us for only five months less than Ash has (almost 10 years!). They’ve grown up together and because of that, he doesn’t mind being around little kids. Adults on the other hand. . . We’ve been feeding him for ten years and he’s still not 100% sure he can trust us.

He wasn’t a lap cat for the first 8 years of his life, but lately he enjoys crawling into my lap to take about a 30 minute nap. Thankfully that’s the extent of it, because my legs are asleep by the time he’s leaping out! He’s not a small cat — 14 pounds!

Do you know what the pieces of wood are called that hold the panes of glass together? And that my cat has his paw parallel to? Head over to Project Edit 365 to see if you know the answer and to see how I edited the original photo. Thanks!

Museum Silhouette

How long do we have to stay at the museum?

Our girls are really good about going out and doing adult things, like spending time at an art museum. There is some antsy-ness that goes on, but they’re learning how to either make things interesting or be patient while they die of boredom. Here, they were patient with Mommy as I asked them to pose in front of the window, knowing that I’d get a good silhouette. Well, somewhat patient.

Museum Silhouette – Project Edit 365 – 03 Oct

The original was just dark. I blew out the highlights coming in from the window and turned it into black and white. I used a small adjustment brush on my daughter’s face so her features would stand out just a little. Here’s the original:
