When we were creating the images for the new website last week, we discovered that the banner I’d been using for my blog was too large to fit in the banner spot on the new site. I wanted to use a new picture, anyway, though I still wanted to feature our lovely black cat, Merlin. This time I decided it would be nice to have a picture of him outdoors.
A couple of years ago we lost a lot of our photos in the crash of an external hard drive (lesson: always have multiple backups). So since I didn’ t have a photo that would work, and it was a beautiful day, we decided we should do an impromptu photo shoot with Merlin. Luckily, he was willing to cooperate – even though we woke him up from a nap in the barn. I confess, we did bribe him with treats and petting.
Here are the behind-the-scenes images of our feline photo shoot.
