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.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Enveloped

Enveloped

One of Cielo’s favorite weekly rituals (and cats seem to have several) is to cuddle in the blanket while we’re changing the sheets on the bed. Here he is enveloped on soft folds of polar fleece!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Unexpected

The World Upside-Down

The World Upside-Down

One of Cielo’s favorite sunspots, the back of this chair gets lots of use…but until the other day, I had never seen him perch himself upside-down on it!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Companionable

Companions

Companions

Well, for those of you who follow this blog, my subject matter for this week’s challenge is no surprise. Companions to each other and to us, Leo and Cielo fulfill the job admirably. Dubbed “Dog cats,” Tonkinese are affectionate, gregarious, athletic and beyond intelligent. Leo, the guy who’s looking at you in the portrait, opens drawers, cabinets, and doors, while Cielo fetches and has an extensive vocabulary. They follow us around the house and are almost always to be found nearby. I’m a big fan and truly grateful for their unconditional love and companionship, head butts, nose bites, and purrs.
