Floral Overlay with Tuxedo Cat

tuxedo cat overlaid with bright flowers

Today’s selfie of Thomas is an overlay portrait that shows some of the rainbow colours that will greet our colleague Ernie of the Island Cats, who left us yesterday.

These flowers are currently blooming in a trough in the garden, in spite of a few frosts. I love the resilience of pansies especially, they shine on in spite of everything, like Ernie.

Ernie has been an absolute joy to see every week in the selfies with his wry comments or his blissful enjoyment of the sunshine. We will miss you Ernie, very much.

I thought you might be curious to see the two photographs I used to create the tribute image. One is of Thomas sat enjoying the garden and the other is an overlay. You can try overlays too.

    We, too, are just gutted about Ernie going to the Bridge. He has been a wonderful friend to so many of us around the globe, and we will miss him dearly.
