photographing black

Black damask  and black cats are impossible to photograph an get what the eye sees. Today I got lucky twice!

Lucky to even get close enough to Jake's cat Juicy who is extremely wary and elusive (he lives inside a couch downstairs).

He's been venturing  upstairs in the morning to meet our cats but he's never been outdoors so has to be kept from the cat door. I'm sure he's part, if not all, Maine Coon cat. Those are six inch tiles on the floor to give some scale.

That is a huge cat! Those eyes look
like energy escaping.

OH!!! What an incredible cat. I love the Maine Coon personality. I wonder why he is so wary of everyone. Please protect him. Don't let him outside. I think he imparts a spiritual strength, a connection to another level.
