The Cats of University Heights: Friends

We follow up Georgia Twain with another pair. But the two are one less than they should be. I typically see three cats in the same apartment courtyard, on Florida between Meade and Monroe, but typically too far back for meaningful portrait. I stalked the trio for six months before capturing a shot of these, ah, Friends on July 14, 2018. They sat relatively close to the sidewalk.

The three live a few houses down from Lucy and diagonally across the way from Mew and Wonder. I will be lucky to ever get a usable portrait of the third or distinguish it from the other black. But I will try and update appropriately. 

I captured the Featured Image using Leica Q, 14 minutes after sunset (8:12 p.m. PDT). Vitals: f/1.7, ISO 4000, 1/250 sec, 28mm. The companion, of the Tuxedo solo, comes from the same camera, on April 28, 2018 at 7:14 p.m. Vitals: f/1.7, ISO 320, 1/250 sec, 28mm. Typically, for dusk shots, I open up the aperture and preset shutter speed to diminish feline motion blur.
