#SundaySelfies - Sun Bathers

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss? So how long before I flip over?

KATIE:  Flip over?

WAFFLES:  Yeah, how long before I need to flip over so I don't get tan lines.



KATIE:  Waffles, we're cats. We don't get tan lines.

WAFFLES:  Yeah we do. Just look at all these stripes on me.

KATIE:  Waffles, you're a tabby cat. Tabbies are striped. You've even got that big M on your forehead to prove it.





WAFFLES:  But I thought it was a W for Waffles.


About Today's Photos
Ever since we got back from our vacation, Glogirly's been rearranging furniture and loungers to help us maximize the sun puddle real estate here at the Townhouse. Our vacation condo had HUGE windows and the sun poured in all day long. It was the best napping we've EVER had. But direct sun is pretty limited around here. Rumor has it, the primo windows are going to start taking reservations.

We don't often take pictures in direct sunlight. We usually opt for indirect natural light. It's very soft and even. Technically speaking, direct sun it's very challenging when it comes to photography. Even more challenging is a mixture sun and shade. The camera doesn't know whether to expose the photo properly for the sun or the shade. Sure, there are ways around that. We could change some of the settings on the camera, or try and fill the shadows with a flash. Sometimes we just grab the camera and hope for the best, and sometimes we grab Gloman, a.k.a the resident photography expert. *wink*

  1. Sun is wonderful. I love the days when it appears. It's elusive around here in the winter and spring.

  4. I envy your sunpuddles! I'm at a cat show this weekend, so I'm either stuck in a huge hall or a sun puddle-less hotel room. I'm looking forward to getting back home to some nice, direct sun!

  6. Sun puddles are difficult to shoot. I have been trying to get a series of good ones but I gave up and posted filtered through a curtain coziness for selfie Sunday. The sun will keep on coming though so I'll photo on (much to Amelia's sunny snoozing dismay!)

  15. Dat is why my house is best. It faces southeast. So if we have sun, the living room, and two front bedrooms have sun in the AM, afternoon-the bay window in the kitchen with the table in front (mum doesn't even mind me being on the table), late afternoon into evening, the big windows that go to the floor and mum sleepy room window. Life is good with sun puddles.

  19. Taking a photo of a black and white cat in part sun / part shade is one of the biggest photo challenges. With my two black-and-whites, I find it quite hard to take a good picture when they're sun bathing.

  20. We love these photos. Selfies where we get toes along with faces are the best. Waffles you continue to crack us up. Only you would think that "M" is a "W." Thank you, dear friends, for joining and supporting our blog hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. I love your selfies! Waffles, as a ginger tabby myself, named Spike William, I agree that my forehead stripes might also be a "W" for William!

    Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs, Spike William

  26. All lighting situations are challenging to TW. I guess she’s lucky we don’t get direct sunlight in here. Per usual, your photos are great.
