It's Black Cat Appreciation Day!

So Indy celebrates in one of the best ways he sitting in a warm dryer:


I forgot to check the white balance setting before I took this shot. It was set to "cloudy" because I had taken pictures indoors the day before and wanted to remove the bluish cast you get. I also forgot that I was set to center-weighted metering, too.

I guess the mistakes worked out in my favor.

(Shot with the Nikon D300 using the 50mm f/1.8 lens; aperture-priority with the aperture set to f/2.8; camera chose 1/60 sec at ISO 400; center-weighted metering; cloudy white balance; normal JPG.)


  1. I saw that it was black cat appreciation day today! I think Indy definitely fits the bill. This photo just made me grin! It looks like there's a spotlight right above her head.

  2. How do people find out about all these appreciation days? I never know what day it is ... literally most of the time, lol.

    Lovely photo of Indy. Very good of him to sit right in the middle:)

  3. if he ever thought the dryer was also a portal to narnia or someplace i'd hate to have to tell him the truth.

  4. @Greyhounds CAN Sit: i usually only know of them when they appear on my FB page.

  5. I love this, those yellow eyes are stunning.

    Houndstooth mentioned you today, I'm so glad I found you.

    I also have a huge love for photography and greyhounds.

  6. greygirl25, well aboard! i've been conversing with carrie a bit. i'm planning on meeting her and bunny at dewey this year.

    great to hear of your love of houndies and photography. taking pictures of our pups is something i've never gotten tired of.

  7. Greygirl25 is being modest! She's one heck of a photographer! I can only dream of being that good!
