Remember back in January when I took I took those awesome winter photos of Izaak? Well, I was inspired when we were outside the other day; it was such a gorgeous, perfect spring day that I got an idea to put Zak in his tree and take some spring photos, and then take some more in the height of summer and autumn and make a four seasons thing.
Just one problem. On that outing, I was using my long lens, and the blossoms and sky were washed out and not nearly as bright as they actually were. I knew it when I took the photos. After I looked at them, I told Zak, “No worries. We can fix that in post.”
Because this is how the sky and blossoms really looked. But it’s a super-easy fix. Just cut out the washed out sky…
…add in the good background…
…brighten it up a bit, add a little blur, and…perfect! Stay tuned for summer!
In the late morning and early afternoon in spring and early summer, we get some wicked awesome sunshine coming in on the kitchen and balcony side of the house.
Any given morning, you will find an assortment of cats sprawled across the dining room table. The other morning, it was Angel, Jacoby and Izaak. Despite being a hard uncomfortable place to nap, it’s extremely popular.
“My sunshine brings all the cats to my table“…or something.
It’s finally spring here in midwestern Sweden.
We can tell because there’s no snow, the temperature is getting up above 5°C, and the swans have returned to our little lake (See those two little white dots in that photo up there? Those are our swans).
Even though it was still a little chilly, I took Lorelai and Izaak outside to run around. It has been ages since they really got to run around, and run around they did.
Rory got out the door and immediately started bounding down the hill, with Zak in hot pursuit.
It is amazing how far they can get in such a short time. They are almost down to the road at the bottom of our hill.
Rory was fascinated by something in those sticks…
…Whilst Zak was more interested in trees.
Finally I got them back up the hill…
…and into the open area behind our apartment.
They’re very familiar with the back of our apartment.
We had an audience…apparently that other cat we saw on the balcony last summer has a roommate.
As much as they enjoyed running around on the back lawn, it was pretty clear that there was only one ultimate goal…
Rory did her usual digging holes in the sand and then running away from them.
Finally we all got cold enough to go back in the apartment. But we had 45 minutes of fun and bonding before we went back in.
Gun-Hee went to the park both yesterday and today. Finally, we’re getting wonderful spring-like weather in Boston (and about time, too).
Here’s Gun-Hee with some pretty springtime flowers…
