A Good Match

This week, share a photo of a satisfying pairing from your own life…You can mix and match places, people, objects, and activities that represent your idea of a harmonious, pleasing combination. —WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

My idea of a good match is: my lap, a cat and my iPhone. This trifecta should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed my blog for any length of time.

My nightly ritual is to sit on our couch, prop my legs up on an ottoman and wait for our little Russian Blue to hop up and curl into a ball. She promptly falls asleep and I practice different combinations of lens/film/flash on my favorite mobile photography app, Hipstamatic.

I used the Jane Lens/AO BW Film/Apollo Flash combination to take this photo.

    That cat is looking at you as if to say:
    It’s nice to be under my spell, isn’t it ?

      Thanks for your kind words. Yes, cats go with everything—except fireworks.

    Cat and iPhone! Not eve a video. Still so good together. Does she pose?

      For about a nanosecond when she is awake, longer when asleep and the sound is off on my phone.

      She is a rescue kitty and had a pretty tough life by the time she came to our house.

        What a lucky girl. Well really both of you. Life can be good.
