Shadow Shots: A Skunk In The Basement!? Quick - Get The Camera

Here Mia is using sun and shadow to disguise herself as a skunk.

Although she had pulled down and clawed up all the newspapers I had to stop and take some photos. I love the position of my little finger!! So delicate and ladylike - that's me.

Check out more Shadow Shots HERE


bobbie said...

Well, your delicate, ladylike self managed to take a couple of really great pictures for Shadow Shots!

Hot Fudge said...

Your lady-like shadow shot looks like a couple of cats in earnest conversation. I love it.

Hilary said...

Awww purrfect! Give Mia a scratch on the head for me. :)

Greyscale Territory said...

The look on Mia's face is hilarious! She almost seems to be saying "What areyou going to do about it!" Quite a challenge!

And your pinky shadow is quite beautiful! I agree with Hot Fudge that it looks like two small cats having a tete-a-tete.

storyteller said...

Both shots are most creative and fun.
Hugs and blessings,

Kat said...

ha ha I also point my finger like that when I am picking up yukky things! naughty cat!

Magical Moments with Me and Mine said...

Great ss, do you drink your tea like that? :D

Hey Harriet said...

That's such a great shot of Mia! How cute your little skunky-kitty is! Very mischievious looking!

The second shot is really funny. It looks like you mistakingly picked up your camera in place of your cup of tea. Your tea of course being in a dainty floral pretty china cup. Hope the tea didn't get too cold while following the antics of your cute kitty ;)

High Desert Diva said...

Cherie said...

Fun hand shadows! I love hand shadow games, always fun to do with kids.

I always have high tea with my pinky in the air ;)

high desert - glad you got a chuckle :)

cherie - I took some amazing shadow puppet shots with Siren. I used film and it's not back yet so it will be a future SS

Both pictures are great! Mia looks like she's saying "Yeah? So what?"

Hildegarde said...

Both great pictures. I like the idea of disguising in shadows.

Neat shots...I love the gridwork on kittys rear end.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Ha! Very cute. My SS is up but I think Mr. Linky failed me again. It appears people are coming over to see a SS submission from two weeks ago. So if you haven't already, come visit!

Jan said...

These are both fun shots. I really like the B&W.

Bob-kat said...

Mia isn't fooling anyone ;) Great shadow shots!

Tessa said...

Cat as skunk...brilliant! And I do love your dainty way with a camera - very clever shot!

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Seems your cutie cat knows to pose for you for a perfect shadow shot, huh?

Thanks for dropping by & hope you have a wonderful day & week ahead.

Dianne said...

lily - she is a cutie, thanks :)

lisa - me too!! the sun does wonderful art work - thanks :)

pagan - now I have to go double check - last week I realized I was at an old post but yesterday I was in a fog lol

jan - thanks. It looked terrible in color, the carpet just ate up the shadows.

bob-kat - LOL - but she thinks she is ;)

babylonezoo - thanks to you as well :)

tessa - I don't know when or why I started with the pinky in the air LOL
It is so not me

richie's - her brother knows the camera, Mia just loves to watch me so she's easier to get shots of
Siren always wants to play with the camera.

Anonymous said...

Catherine said...

I'm a little late on this one, but couldn't resist. Mia is perfect as a cat as well as a skunk.
And very Ladylike, as you said. Dear Dianne, would you be so kind as to come at tea time ? Is it enough "good manners-like"? Really I have a doubt, I'm just French, my Dear.

Askew To You said...

"When in doubt, pinkie out!" as Patrick Star says. :D

Love the skunk kitty. Very clever.
