Re: Chinese New Year Cats
In reply to robert j, 5 months ago

It's Chinese New Year now for Chinese all over the world.

It's a local custom in my part of the world for us to visit friends and relatives during this period and present them with a pair of mandarin oranges for good wishes and blessings.

Here's New Year blessings from 2 of my cats...

Ginny

Candy

Blessings and Good Wishes, one and all.

What a fantastic coat Amani has. Is a Savannah one of those big cats?

Choco seems to have settled in well. What does JC think about her new roommate?

Bodhi Chitta and Sashi Lhamo are growing up
In reply to robert j, 5 months ago

Bodhi now looks very much like a cat even though he is 15 weeks old tomorrow. And yes, his points really do have a purplish tinge to him. He is supposed to be a blue but he does look quite lilac in colour. Time will tell.

Sashi is now quite a little madam. Even though she is only 12 days younger than Bodhi, she is still considerably smaller. But then again, Bodhi is quite a chunky young man. I think red is Sashi's colour.

They won't be kittens for long.

A couple of cats from my youth probably about 40 years gone
In reply to robert j, 5 months ago

I have been messing about copying some old slides, I thought I would see what I could do with an old OM slide copier which was designed to mount onto the OM bellows However my 80mm bellows lens wasn't suitable at FourThirds for this purpose so I decided to see what I could do with the 35mm macro. I made up a mounting using some rails and spacers and behold it works well and much quicker than a scanner

These slides were not looked after, they spent many years in a darkroom with a leaking roof so they have dirt and moulds of some sort on them. It seems too the memories of how good slides were is much rosier than comparison with modern images would prove too as slow slide films meant apertures used weren't really the best for sharpest images plus viewed differently upon a  computer screen rather than projected, not finding the love. Many of my exposures left a lot to be desired too I see, some seem to have changed colours too, mainly Agfa ones, some are almost sepia like. Mind you in the day I really only used medium format (ahh Rolleiflex and RB67) for "real" photos and the 35mm only came out for back-up and casual photos.

The first couple would have been from early to mid 70's Sandy the orange cat we had for nearly 20 years and poor long suffering Tiger was carted around a lot in my sisters dolls pram

The last one is my supervisor confirming I had been using an acceptable set-up.

Brits are like dogs in that they must inspect and supervise basically everything you do and follow you around to do it.

Nice pictures of the two and the best part is someone else has to care for them.
