Oh, be still my bleeding heart! by RavenMontoya Oh, be still my bleeding heart! by RavenMontoya
Cats run on equal parts food and sunlight during the summer, I think. :lol:
That step is a popular spot when it comes to soaking up the sun, especially during the afternoon. Smiley soleil - Sun 
Oliver has really draped himself over it in this photo. So cute. Aww Revamp-Kinda pink heart bullet 

Yes, his fur is very brown this summer. I have absolutely no idea why, but time will probably tell if he'll turn more grey again. :lol:

I didn't want to disturb him so I (of course) used my zoom and the bleeding hearts in the foreground turned out blurry, as you can see.
Big deal? Nah, not really, I think.

However, the first thing my mother said when she saw this photo was: "Why are the flowers blurry?" :unimpressed:
Me: "Because the depth of field was too narrow to make them sharp. I was focusing on Oliver." :shrug:
She: "Photos are supposed to be sharp!" :unimpressed:

Hehe, just goes to show that you can never please everyone. :XD:

You can talk about bokeh to your mother...not sure she agree but it could be a step :rofl:

I tried telling her about bokeh. She thought it was rubbish! :lol:
But she's okay in every other way so I guess that's fine. Giggle

Warm sunlight and boxes. Cat magnets! ;P

:rofl: Try with flowers in foreground, and a big bokeh, do the same without, and make her choose...we're going to see if you can try to convince her :D not a big deal btw

My kitties like sunlight more than they like boxes though. Gizmo likes to destroy boxes, but he's the only one really drawn to them. :giggle:

Aww. That's a lovely photo. Sweet cat and sweet flowers.
I didn't know this until recently, but bleeding hearts are also called lady-in-a-bath if the pink part is peeled outward slightly and the whole flower turned upside-down. I bet kitties would like the other name better than the bath name.

I don't think I've seen that name before either. Really funny name! Makes sense when you see it though. (I googled.) :giggle:
Pretty sure the cats like things that bleed better than baths though, yes. ;)

I was a little confused on what you meant by "bleeding heart" until I realized that you were talking about those pink(ish) flowers.

:iconravenmontoya:
RavenMontoya Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Ah, yes, I did that intentionally to connect the image with the title and make it a little bit "tricky".
Maybe it was too tricky though. Sorry if it was confusing! Aww Revamp-Kinda

It's fine! I had never heard of bleeding heart-flowers before this. I actually thought that Oliver had killed something before this photo was taken (like maybe a mouse or a small bird).

I have a few cats at home, and one of them once brought a dead chipmunk into the house (which, admittedly, I ended up throwing away).

Aww hes a real cutie and I love those back paws they are so cute, he certainly looks very relaxed. I didnt even think of how the bleeding hearts came out, didnt focus on them so I am guessing your mom takes pics also? She sounds like my sister :rofl: with the sharpness. But the point is you were focusing on that handsome fellow Lady Flirt  Oliver! I love this shot. :aww: so it gets my seal of approval!

My mom doesn't take photographs very often (but when she does they're always tilting to the left). :lol:
She has some old fashion idea about how photos need to be completely sharp everywhere. I tried to tell her about macro, bokeh and depth of field. She thought it was silly. :giggle:

Your welcome :la: why does she take pics tilted? 
Give it a different look? Well you get sharp pics
all the time but you did very good with your photos.

Her images tilt because she can't keep the camera straight, no other reason. :XD:
She usually borrows my camera and it has support-lines on the screen and everything, just to help you hold it straight. Mom just ignores them and tilts the camera anyway - then can't understand why the images aren't straight when we look at them afterwards. It's quite funny.
Always the same story. fox XD by RavenMontoya
