While walking this evening, I unexpectedly came upon a kitty that I hadn’t seen since our first meeting on Sept. 4, 2017. Nicknamed Jellicle, the Tuxedo hung out in a yard near where Monroe Ave. crosses Louisiana Street. I was so satisfied with the portraits captured using Leica Q, I decided to finally follow up post “Meow! Second Sightings“, which showcased additional photos of felines from my “Cats of University Heights” series.
In a case of pure photographic gluttony, among the 13 putty-tats, four of their portraits are Jellicle, including the Featured Image. Vitals, aperture and shutter speed preset: f/1.7, ISO 3200, 1/250 sec, 28mm; 7:13 p.m. PDT. The others are collected in the gallery that follows (click any one to scroll through them all in larger format).
The gallery is selective. I will collect more pics for a future post. Some kitties, like Itchy Valentino, are seen so often that I rarely shoot new photos. But as Monkey’s recent passing shows, that’s a lazy habit. I shouldn’t take opportunities for granted.
