Capture Your 365 January 10: Photograph A Doorway
For the last several months, I’ve been including cats in my paintings. Which is strange, because I’m not really a cat person. But they keep appearing in nearly all my recent artwork. Now they are appearing at my door. And all over my yard. It started when some new neighbors moved in next door. I came home from work, and Karlie was giggling hysterically at the back door as a cat tried to push its way into our house. Later that evening, we heard constant meowing, and thought it was the backdoor cat calling to us. Turns out it was a different cat, who had gotten locked in our garage when I came home! In the pre-dawn hours of the next morning, Karlie was awakened by the sounds of copulating cats outside her window! Since then, every time I look outside, I see at least one of three cats in our yard: a brown striped one, an orangey one, and a white one. Recently I discovered that there are at least two of the orangey ones, as they were both lounging in our yard together. And this morning… two brown stripy ones!
Today’s Capture Your 365 photo assignment was to photograph a doorway. This is a photo of the doorway to my backyard, with one of the two brown stripy cats trying to con his way inside. I literally had to close the door in his face to keep him out.
