Wife, Cats, and stones – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #49 – Favourite Things

This week we are challenged us with:

We look forward to seeing your unique and varied responses to this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #49: Favourite Things.

What are my favourite things?  There are a lot when I come to think of it, but if there are so many, does that make them favourite, or just things that make me happy and those I love.  And what should I group into the category of ‘Things’.  Anyway enough of an early morning existential crisis, here is a photo that has a number of ‘things’ in it.  My wife, friends, me taking a photo, Long Meg and her daughters, stone circles in general, wide open spaces, the country side, walking, nature . . . I’ve used a different edit of this before but it just contained so many favourites, that the opportunity to re-edit was too good to miss.

What is missing, well cats, our cats especially, music, dancing, visiting new places, West Penwith, St. Ives, sunsets, a roof over my head . . . just where do the likes stop and the favourites begin!

So I am going to choose just one more photo:

A sunny spot – K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: For the love of.

Each week, K’lee and Dale offer  prompts for us to consider as the latest challenge.  This week it was K’lee with:

This week, the reins are in my hands, and on Friday past, I offered up the following:
FOR THE LOVE OF…?

Well better late than never! Cats love sunshine, and I love cats, I will take a photo of any cat if I have my camera with me.  This one was the resident cat at the location where my band recorded our album.  Lazing in the sun I just had to take a photo.

Cats not dogs for me #NationalPetParentsDay – Sunday Stills – #A Dog’s Life.

This week Teri has challenged us with:

Did you know the last Sunday of April is National Pet Parents Day? Hooray, because I am one and I bet you are, too…or maybe so in the pawst!
For this week’s Sunday Stills photography challenge, let’s celebrate the pets that make our lives so much richer!

We were having a hot chocolate at the beach cafe Portreath, I am not a dog person, definitely a cat person, however I had to take a photo of him, just look at the love in those eyes!

We do however have two cats of our own, the adorable, but here looking moody as he had just woken up:

We rescued these two lovely boys from a cattery as someone had abandoned them!  Beautiful brothers who enrich our lives with their companionship.

I have always had cats, before we had, well actually as they are cats they own us . . . any way, before these two called on us to be their slaves, we were honoured to share our lives with the very special ‘Darkle’.  Mad as a hatter and lived to be a grand old lady, it was a very sad day when we had to say goodbye to her,  the vet called her a ‘miracle cat’ in the last few years of her life, we did all we could for her and our love was rewarded with her love.  So a slightly blurry photo, and not just from tears of happy memories, but this was taken when she was still able to get about on the prowl for a bit.

Poise and Do not disturb – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Cute Factor

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Cute Factor’.

I am biased, I think they are cute, but then they are our cats!  The first photo is of Roswell, he is not Grey but you know, he was named after the TV series.  And the second photo is of Falco, named after the main character in the Lindsay Davies books.

Cat = Sunshine – Friday Foto Fun – Pets

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we are asked to:

Please share your ‘pets’ either through your lens
or in your own words?

So here is a picture of one of our two cats, doing what cats do, attempting to snooze in a spot of sunshine.  Not only do they seek out the sunshine to lie, curl up, and purr, but they also bring sunshine into my heart.

Watching Felines – Weekly Photo Challenge – Eyes

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ challenges us to:

Photograph eyes . . . . Choose a living subject, a person or a pet works, and make sure you can see at least one eye. Living things have a tendency to move around, even if they are being cooperative, but your job is to keep the eyes in focus!

So here are a couple of pictures of our cats.
