Cat on a Cold Tin Roof

Fog had settled onto the neighborhood by 1 a.m. PST, I observed before nestling into bed. The cloud is still there as I write, just after eight, and something else: Tiger tabby Monkey from my Cats of University Heights series sits on our car.

He is a neighborhood roamer, and unmistakably identifiable from similarly-striped beasties I see hereabouts. I couldn’t resist shooting several portraits of the feline as he groomed, through my office window using Leica Q—different compositions and apertures, switching between auto and manual focus modes. 

The Featured Image is a crop. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/5.6, ISO 160, 1/60 sec, 28mm; 7:38 a.m. The accompanying photo is the original, with our licensing plate number removed, to show off the view from my work window.
