I like how the window reflection augments the flock.

Just curious! What is the red bag under the Eastlake Ave for?
I like the black and white with the colour touches in this photo!
Did you use the GF1?

the reflection/doubling is an intentional aspect of their positioning. : ]

the red bag is not a bag. it is a collapsable tunnel for the cat to play in, which she does. a lot. especially since we moved it next to the heater.

I didn't use the GF1 for this, but it is the sort of thing I can do more easily now that I have it. this is something like 12 shots from the TX1 stitched together and heavily warped in post processing to make everything straight.

the GF1 can do almost the same thing in one shot at 14mm.

Obvious idea- a flock of native black birds.

groups of crows often sit on the rail just outside that window, actually.

the cat sits in her bed and mimics [poorly] bird noises, in an attempt to lure them. though the window, i guess.

though there is no possible way she could beat even one of them in a tangle, especially since she has no front claws.

really like this selective colouring.

i like selective colour too, but isn't it a bit contrived, artless and easy?

only if you want it to be and to me this looks balanced and perfect.
