Ah, cats always look so wise to me and this would seem to be wisdom on four paws! What a great shot/shots!

Enjoy your weekend!

Patti said...

Wonderful photos ~ I'm wondering how you created the effect in the second one. I'm not too technical!

Great shadows in both. Thanks for stopping by!

Ralph said...

What a regal looking kitty (aren't they all??). The shadow of this special feline seems to make him seem deeper in person, if not in thought. The effect of the multitude of cat views appear as if a star - The cat as the star of the abode. I'm sure he agrees with me!

Gaelyn said...

That second shot is very creative Diane. Nice shadows with your cat playing along.

Diane AZ said...

I should mention that's our cat Billy. He's about 18 years old. The quilt-maker in me can't seem to resist playing around with shapes and patterns in Photoshop, that's how the star came about.

That's very cool!

Such creativity...and a very beautiful cat!

Hey Harriet said...

I love that second image that you created. That's neat! Cute Billy cat! Oh and I enjoyed the Buddha quote too :)

Dimple said...

The second shot is really neat! I see the shape of the shadow from Billy's ear repeated in the star. I'm not usually one for manipulating images much, many times all I do is crop mine, but this works well.
Thanks for the visit!

Carletta said...

He's a handsome kitty!
Nice processing of the second shot.
I love playing with software too.

I like the star shaped image and the different positions of the cat.The cat has an interesting expression in the first photo.

Beautiful close-up in the first shot and a great framing in the second one.
I love the Buddha quote, I always believed it but very few of us achieved it.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful post.

I wonder what the kitty is thinking.
