Caturday Art Blog Hop


Mauricio loves to pose for the camera as he is an attention hog. If we don’t give him our undivided attention, he is in our faces giving us a piece or three or ten of his mind: “meow…meowy…meyowl…meyowl…me…me…me…NOW!

So here he is today as our submission in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. For once I decided less is more and used only two filters in my normal photo editing program, Picasa.

mauricio before caturday artThe original photo is on the right. I added the HDR-ish filter with the strength at 100 percent, then added the aqua edges, to pick up the colors in Mau’s fur, with the Vignette filter and finally added the mat and frame.

Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

Cat4And please join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We will be featuring Calista Jo. As a reminder, you might want to download the iPhone/iPad app, MeowSnap, at a cost of $1.99 and let your subject give it a try. Since telling you about it, Astrid tried it using the iPhone. She took a couple of cute photos, but I think it might be more successful using the iPad.

This is awesome. The effects really capture Mauricio’s expression and air of confidence. Well done. I need to get a good photo program going. I just do “regular” pictures.
I thank you for the offer of an award. Actually, I will accept it. What you said was really beautiful and I appreciate that. Could you please send me your email address. I thought I had it, but when I sent you an email it bounced back labeled “Undeliverable”.

Oh that is a really interesting effect on your photo Mau! I think your Mom did a great job with it – it’s fun to try different things with photo editing but one thing stays the same no matter WHAT effects are used – – – we are most handsome mancats – right?????

Hugs, Sammy
