A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. ~ Diane Arbus
Cats on a hot tin roof! Not exactly. This photo was an unexpected shot that I tried while standing in the back of the garage at the farm. Two of the cats had jumped from the hood of the truck to the roof as they often did. I was watching them play and enjoying my visit on a sunny December day.
Reflections and silhouettes intrigue me. The angle of light reflects the cats’ feet on the truck’s roof as well as the trees and a patch of snow on the side windows. The tree branches frame the photo and give the illusion they are nearby. The contrast of sleek black cats with the background of bare brown vista adds textural interest. The landscape is realistic, but neither cat is black!
