Thanks to helpful advice from peeps, I managed to get my edited photos onto Flickr! Here are two celebratory miaolings.

I’m trying to start taking more Miao photos, but now that I have a fresh batch of photos ready, technical issues are getting in my way. No matter what I try, I can’t get iMac Photos to authorize my Flickr account. So I need another photo editor so that I can bypass the photos library, which is so frustrating to work with when importing from my Nikon. I liked Picasa but that does not seem to exist any more.

Chun just sighed and snored, because he is exhausted after a productive and somewhat treacherous photoshoot in which the backdrop fell on him. 😦 I will be back with a proper Miao update sometime soonish, maybe.

And in the meantime, in a pitiable effort to give a preview of the Miao photos from today, here is a screenshot of one of them.

My computer is so new, it hasn’t learned that purrfect is a word.

I like how floofed out his ruff is in this one. 2013 was a good year for miao photos.

a belated birthday post

Mani’s 20th birthday was on 14 November. He is doing well despite a couple ongoing health problems that seem to be under control these days.

here is a relatively recent photo of Lotus and Mani.
