I’m very keen on macro photography and I do a lot in monochrome…….however I couldn’t find all that many pictures which are both macro AND monochrome for Cee’s B&W Challenge : Close Up .

But there’s always the cats. Working on the premise that there can never be too many cats on the internet, here are a few pictures of our two, Bluejohn and Misty.

I’ve previously posted a couple of other monochrome macros: click here for Aye Eye (an equine one for a change) and here for I’m A Cat (yet another feline close up).

    Thank you. Cats would say it’s all down to their utter perfection. (I would tend to agree) . Have a good weekend.

How about one shot with the tongue out that you can leave with a splash of color?

    Thanks for that Charles. Now you come to mention it, there might be one just like that somewhere……..

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
