I'm one of the 38 million+ people in the US who is a personal servant to a domestic feline. I've owned several cats over the past 23 years, but none were quite as special as Nelson, my 8-year old grey tuxedo DSH. He is a special cat for many reasons, and as a reflection of my ongoing adoration of him, he is frequently a photography subject. Most are snapshot type photos, given his lack of interest in posing or staying still for very long. But, occasionally, one turns out better than expected.
I had fun coming up with various colorized versions of this cropped, posterized photo using custom gradient filters. I will continue to pay homage to my beloved feline companion in future drawings, paintings and perhaps a sculpture...and of course - photos!
