Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic

Monochromatic With Aqua

Monochromatic With Aqua

I think many believe that the word monochromatic is synonymous with black and white, but it ain’t necessarily so. Simply put, a monochromatic shot involves the predominance of one color, and it can sometimes include an additional color for emphasis.

Here’s a mostly monochromatic shot of my beautiful boy Cielo sharing his gorgeous aqua blue eyes. His breed (Tonkinese) is the only feline variety that displays these aqua eyes. To learn more about the Weekly Photo Challenge – click here.

      Being a cat person, you would love him, Shimon, and he you. He has a wonderful personality – very affectionate and playful. He’s one of those rare cats that fetches and he loves to bring toys to us to throw for him. We call him a “dog-cat!”
