Feline Friday: A Literary Tail

This past week, DD was busy setting up all kinds of staged photos to illustrate various passages from To Kill a Mockingbird. As part of this English class project, she took artistic photos around our neighborhood, set up a mock jail cell, and photographed interesting objects to symbolize themes in the novel.

I thought the project was relatively "highbrow" until Sunday evening, when I passed through the dining room and caught a glimpse of a most unusual photo shoot: DD had carefully posed Lily at a make-believe tea party, complete with antique dishes, to illustrate the following passage:

“After all, if Aunty could be a lady at a time like this, so could I.” (Scout, To Kill a Mockingbird)

In fact, Lily was the perfect lady. And DD got an A.

Oh, that is just FANTASTIC! What a great photo.... you'll have to scrapbook that scene!

I think she should do more; a series of cat & antique photos... wouldn't that be cool?

Thanks, everyone! Who knew that Lily had it in her??! I love how DD changed the photo to sepia.

Maureen, it did remind me of those antique photos where you dress in old clothes. Who knows where this could lead for Lily!

Connie, I will if I can put a collage together. That would be fun! Now keep in mind, Lily is only featured in one photo!

I'll be sure to share your nice comments with DD! Thanks so much -
Janet
