Quarterly Top Five: Kitty Paw!

July 06, 2011
The other day, Amber encouraged me to share my top five favorite (for the months of April, May and June) photos of Kitty Paw. This will be my first time participating in the quarterly challenge…and I’m not sure why I waited until the second quarter to jump in. I guess I’m a slow start.AprilI have a few shots of Kitty Paw basking in the sun, but I love how the light makes her black coat glow in this particular shot. I also really like the processing I used.
