It's my party...

Or in this case, it's my blog, and I'll post what I want to. I'm tired of waiting until I have a piece completed, photographed, or scanned, before posting here. The truth is, exploration in all forms, is what this space is about, so I've decided to share some new stuff. Because, as I mention in another post, I'm freakish about not using other people's proprietary images and content, and I'm also cheap, I use my own digital photography in my mixed media pieces. My holiday present to myself last year was my Canon S5 IS with a killer zoom.

In case it's not obvious, I'm also a bit freakish about animals and am both blessed and cursed to share my life with, among others, five feral cats. Make no mistake, these guys are truly feral, and we can't get too close to them, but I discovered recently that my zoom can.

Here's some backyard wildlife photography, in order of appearance, Tortilina and Mama Kitty above, Cinder Kitty directly below, and Taran in close up at bottom.
