Samantha took her selfie for today while she was lying on the warm stone hearth by the wood stove – one of her favorite places to be when she’s hanging out with all of us. She asked me to do a little editing on her photo to enhance it a bit. I added the Helsinki effect on Fotor.com, which sharpened things a tad by intensifying the colors and detail, and then took it over to PicMonkey to add some frost around the edges. I gave the frost a bit of a yellow tint to go with Sam’s eyes.
Thank you to The Cat On My Head for hosting the Sunday Selfies blog hop!

I am not sure if Sam looks contented or ticked off…lol. Brown dawgs would say typical cat. I like the effects you put on the photo.
That’s the happiest her expression ever gets, so she probably is contented in this one! LOL
Jean Dion says
Love it! Photographing black cats is always such a challenge, as they seem to fade right into the background. Looks like you have a knack for getting the lighting just right!
Jean from Welcome to the Menagerie
Probably not so much of a knack, as just getting lucky this time! 🙂
