Wonderful Whiskers

November 8, 2010

Molly has the most wonderful whiskers, a brilliant white contrast to her shiny black coat. What's funny is that originally her whiskers were black: about two and a half years ago she suddenly sprouted a single white one, then another, and another, and within a few weeks they were as white as mine. which I like, especially for pictures like the one in the post below, and this one, where the brightness of the whiskers stand out against the darker background.

Here's what I like about this composition: the way it's split in half, with a lighter side and a darker side, but with an ear, eye, and set of whiskers on either one. I love the way the whiskers are spread out and down, like butterfly wings. This was shot with the Canon 5D, 50mm EF lens, f1.4 - 1/100, ISO 400. My focal point was the eye.
