Thimble Thursday: Exposed

This human is still learning the ropes of photography, especially with her new camera. Often, when fiddling with things like white balance and exposure, mistakes are made. Sometimes, though, these mistakes result in effects of which I am sort of fond.

That being said, my little lady Thimble loves to pose in front of windows and screen doors. On bright and beautiful days full of sunshine, the novice photographer in me really gets a run for her money. I can only tweak the camera settings so much before I am out of ideas on how to combat that big glowing ball in the sky. Often, I end up over-exposing shots taken in the sunlight. You know what that means? My pretty little model turning into a glowing angel. These mistakes, I like.



A very happy Thursday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Especially if your cat or dog has long and dense fur, and especially if your furbaby is prone to matting, a shave is sometimes necessary. However, please keep in mind that, even in the summer months, it is not advisable to give your furbaby a full shave, or a shave all the way down to their skin. Cat and dog fur is not like our hair, and instead can act as a means of temperature regulation both in the winter and summer. Just as cats' and dogs' fur traps warmth to help insulate them in the winter, it also traps cool air to help manage their body temperature in the summer. What's more, cutting your furbaby's fur too short, such as all the way down to the skin, can cause direct exposure to the sun, which of course increases the risk of damage or cancer of the skin. Of course, sometimes a shave is called for, but keep in mind that nature didn't design our furbabies to be naked!

  1. Oh Thimble, you do look good. It is so hard to take a picture directly into the sun. But we like that one of you. It came out pretty darn good. You all have a great day.

  5. Thimble always looks adorable, she does look like an angel. Poor Snowball needed a lion cut because she won't let me brush her ( or touch her at all). I think they shaved way too close, I am planning to find a different groomer.

  11. Lovely photos of Thimble! I have a hard time with pictures in front of windows too--and that's where the kitties like to hang in in the daytime. Our Waddles was half-Persian and didn't enjoy brushing. We would have her shaved about once a year--not down to the skin, but real short. Her fur was baby soft.
