I briefly considered explaining the back story to all of these and then realized I’m way too busy having stellar conversations with princess kitty for that to happen. I would stop talking to the cat, but she keeps offering endearing replies to all my comments. I don’t want to be rude.
Useless disclaimer: I went ape-crap with the photo-fix tool. I realize this has probably turned some promising pictures into waste for those of you who know what to look for. But I have the singular good fortune of not really knowing anyone who excels at photography, nor would I care (I suspect) even if I did. I think these pictures are fantastic and I look forward to giving them a physical home nestled between huge mats and simple frames, perched above our 60s couch. I’m that good.
