shedding / spreading


L - Nikon / T - phone pic

Maya over at Springtree Road has a new member of the family - Zasha – she's a russian blue kitty and is so adorable. Maya asked to see our kitty, Kodi. She's a russian blue also. At least that's what they told us at the Humane Society. I beleive she is because of one distinct feature that russian blues have – mauve footpads instead of slate gray. Kodi has mauve. Another thing they say about them is that they don't shed as much as most cats, but that they have shedding seasons. Spring is one of those seasons. I think it's my season for shedding too. Sure seems like I'm losing a lot of hair right now. I don't know, maybe it's age. anyway I guess it's natural. / this is a portion of my last drawing project - transformation - spreading my wings. here i am putting my wings on. i've tested them... they're pretty good. strong. freshman year is drawing to a close and i'd say i've learned a lot.

Thank you for your comments on my blog.
For the past three years I have used a Canon Rebel XT camera. One week ago I was gifted the Canon 50D. So most of the photos you have seen are taken with the Rebel. Moving forward they will be with the 50D. I have three lenses, the kit lens which is a Canon EF 18-55mm, a Canon EF 55-200mm zoom, and just recently added a 50mm 1.8 lens. I also have a close up filter, which screws onto the 200mm zoom and 50mm and acts like a macro, although not quite as close, but for the price it was totally worth it. ( It was about $125, compared to a full lens) .
I hope this helps. I have been really happy with all of this equipment.

One of our dogs has a shedding season too in spring, and its hard to believe that he is completely naked for the amount of fur he leaves around

Taylor, you may not know it yet, but I think illustration is in your future. This piece is SO cool and unique. You have a special talent both behind the camera and with your drawing style. Keep up the good work.

You know what disturbs me? When I look down and I've shed. And it's a shiny, silvery white!! ACK!! Yes, it is a gorgeous color, and I will love it. In about twenty years.
