I’ll also be adding a song to go along with the photo in one way or another.
From a Wiki article:
The Maneki–neko (招き猫, lit. ‘beckoning cat’) is a common Japanese figurine which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. In modern times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic. The figurine depicts a cat, traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail, with a paw raised in a Japanese beckoning gesture.
I love these little Maneki-Neko cats. I think this was one we saw at a restaurant one time. They are a symbol for good luck with their paw raised up. We saw them in Japan, and we see them in restaurants, and at airports.
These are a couple of very old Christmas cards. One shows Santa with a gift, and he says, “Hi”, and there is a little deer carrying more gifts on his back. The other photo shows a white fluffy kitten by a white tree with pink decorations. It says “Not a creature was stirring…”
This is a Christmas mouse wearing a Santa hat and coat, and has a stocking of gifts. My mom painted this many years ago. ❤
Term: Rule of Thirds
Description: In photography, the rule of thirds is a type of composition in which an image is divided evenly into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, and the subject of the image is placed at the intersection of those dividing lines, or along one of the lines itself.
I think these photos show the rule of thirds:
Honeysuckle against weathered wood fence
Tabby Tabs our cat standing on part of a tree
A large wasp that was on the window in the garage
A yellow leaf frozen in ice on our blue truck hood
This black cat is named Orion. He’s been featured on my posts before, and belongs to my daughter, son-in-law, and grand-daughter. He’s a really pretty kitty, and his fur is so soft! He didn’t used to like me, and would hiss, but that was a long time ago. Now he loves when I pet him and rub his tummy.
I wrote a few more cat Haiku poems the other day (June 3, 2019)
