The Face of Little Johnny by TeaPhotography The Face of Little Johnny by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to dear friends Crista :iconnature-as-is: and Aina :iconainashadox: for their BIRTHDAYS which were June 21st and June22nd, respectively, [of course, I'm running late, as always! ;) ]

:rose: :cake: :party: :rose: :cake: :party:

I sure do appreciate Crista's and Aina's ongoing support of me,
as well as ongoing support of The Shelter Project for a long time by now! They each are amazing artists, too! :nod:

Johnny is a petite ALL-black cat, who was scared to death for a while, when he first came to The South Coast Humane Society where I volunteer, but he has calmed down so much, and he is so cute and friendly!

He has been in the newspapers for "Adopt-a-Pet" recently and is on Petfinder.com found through our above link there, with his complete description. :aww:

He's one that has stuck around a while though, likely because he's an all-black cat, as this is what tends to happen with them.

:new: :note: Johnny has been adopted! :party:

A feature of Crista's wonderful work:


A feature of Aina's fantastic work:


Dear Crista and Aina,
Thank you each for being so supportive here on dA.
and I wish you the best in everything this coming year. :hug:'s
Your Friend, Tea


~~~~~~~~~:rose:

Johnny B. Goode
~Chuck Berry

....He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineerswould see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by they would stop and say
Oh my that little country boy could play

Go go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go....


:music: Full Lyrics HERE:[link]
:tunes: YouTube Link HERE: [link]
Awesome vid. of a song that ran in my head all day after I took his photo...
:heart:


~~~~~~~~~:rose:

[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

Oh wow, awesome shot!:la:
I love comparing this one and your another shot with white/orange cat "Get to know me", the photos are so similar (perspective mostly) and yet so different, like ying and yang =D

Hello an thank you so much for your wonderful support and this amazing and insightful comment.

Yes it is true that perspective and post-processing on the two are about the same, and yet the cats themselves, and their colourings couldn't be more different. :aww:

I like your yin and yang comparison.

Thank you for mentioning this. :hug:

Of course you are right, as this is usually the case.
So many people still have such strong superstitions about black cats.
Yes, he is cute, thanks! :aww:

[Darn those people! Superstitions aren't true most of the time, and he's still a potential family member, like any other cat.]

Thanks for your continued wishes on The Shelter Project, too...
:hug:
I think it's very thoughtful and supportive of you that you continue to promote it on your page!! :nod:
It continues to be successful on dA, too, and during times when I do not have customers, well at least it serves to help be educational for how to take better care of animals.

And you are welcome, too, thanks for understanding being late, but you know... so much happening!

He's so much more calm now, and maybe it would have been easier to photograph him now,
but they wanted a photo of him THEN, when he was still afraid. ;)
