While it might not be wise to tinker with a hit – this is my most popular picture — today I tweaked the colour of Toby ever so slightly towards red. I’m happier with the picture now; it is more true to life.

 

This picture was originally an off exposure that took me quite a few attempts to salvage enough to upload. Almost immediately after uploading I realized that Toby looked too yellow, but the picture got comments even while I dithered about making an attempt to fix it. Ever since Flickr introduced the Replace feature I have been dithering again, and finally today I made the fix. I resisted the temptation to do anything more dramatic.

After being playing scene-making supporting roles for pretty girl Xena in my most popular pictures, Toby gets his starring role in an unexpected runaway hit. This picture has been added to the Cream of the Crop pool as my most ‘faved’ picture. Thanks everyone!

 

You rule, Toby!

 

This image got exposure on the Explore page at the expense of an AnomalousNYC work which seems to have been removed from interestingness circulation because it was politically controversial. While I can understand that Flickr might want to avoid controversy, Toby says “Stop being an apologist for the Man! Fight the power!

A whole week has passed since the last new picture of Toby was uploaded, but today there are two. This one is actually a few weeks old, saved for a rainy day. (The sun is out now, but it was raining this morning when the cats normally do their best posing.)
