Focus on Life - Week 50

Only 2 more weeks to go... *sob* What fun we've had! 

I know, for a fact, my photo skills have come on leaps and bounds doing this every week! 
Thank you so much, Sally, you are truly the Hostest with the Mostest :)

This week's prompt is A Pop of Red, as Sally encourages us to 'focus on your surroundings and keep an eye out for pops of red'!

So I give you two shots - one outdoors, and one indoors...

A neighbour's berry-laden hedge - it won't be in a few weeks, the birds adore it!
I haven't edited the photo at all, just 'framed' it...



And our beloved, all-black (except for a few white chest hairs!) Molly-cat wearing her red ID tag



I still have no idea exactly how I created this b+w with a pop of red - I was just playing around in Picasa - but it's exactly the effect I wanted to achieve :-)

Can't wait to see what red pops you've captured this week!

Love Molly's red tag... my grey cat used to have a red heart tag until he lost it! My berries are already gone!

Patty Woodland said...

That bush is chock full for the birds. I'm sure they appreciate it too!

Pretty kitty

Love the berries, and Molly is stylin'! I miss my Hershey, who looked very like your Molly girl. I would never have gotten a collar and tag on her though...fortunately, she was never outdoors.

Those berries are gorgeous. What a great shot! Molly is pretty darn cute too!

Love those red berries (one of my faves, as you might guess from my post.) And your kitty with the red pop. Great!

Alice said...

The berry photo is just lovely and your kitty is so cute.

LOVE the photo of Molly, it turned out perfect! And those berries are scrumptious, no wonder the birdies love them. Very 'holiday-ish' too!

What a cute picture of Molly...isn't it great how when we "play" the results are so great! And I agree too... what are we going to do after week 52.....I have come so far this year!

Claire you fond beautiful pops of red. That is an amazing patch of berries.

I love the photo with the berries, I think the frame makes it pop even more!
