Triple Phase is looking for a new third contributor, and will be undergoing a game-changing face lift that will hopefully result in a more engaging, consistent photo blog. Don't give up on us just yet, great things are just around the corner!

Lucy, The Irresistible.

Lucy, The Irresistible., originally uploaded by OrianaJV.

I thought this photo might follow Simon's kitty picture nicely...
I entered it in a contest and also wrote a paragraph to go along with it.
Written from Lucy's POV:

My Queendom by Lucy Varas

My name is Lucy (Lucifer) Varas and I am the ruler of my queendom. I enjoy long walks on the roof, sitting on laps watching movies, the fanciest of Fancy Feasts – we’re talking Florentines - but tuna straight from a can is also an acceptable meal, as is raw fish of any kind. I have three humans: comfiest, warmest, least-likely-to-carry-me-too-long Mama; understanding, best-when-in-bed-and-immobile, most-likely-to-receive-food-from Sister; male who I have a soft spot for (I always purr for him), most-likely-to-carry-me-for-too-long Brother. My duty is to protect my humans. Any stranger who comes into my queendom will be put under surveillance and subject to many tests, one of which includes the “I will rub against your leg and make you think I have accepted you but IN FACT I HAVE NOT; you are the equivalent of a chair leg to me, imbecile!” And if the stranger fails this test, the punishment is a scratch-and-hiss. Scratch-and-hisses are the most common form of punishment in my queendom and only when I try to leave my queendom (temporarily) might I inflict this upon one of my humans. I am pleased with my humans’ understanding of my stranger-intolerance, as they tell guests, upon arrival, not to touch me, for they are not worthy. They should be grateful for being in my presence at all. However, many strangers have ignored these warnings and accuse me of being the guilty one, but this is, of course, nonsense. After all, this is my queendom and I meow the rules.

Note: No humans were harmed in the making of this narrative.

There's more writing where that came from... check out my blog:

Good Morning.

Good Morning., originally uploaded by OrianaJV.

My kitchen that morning, I thought, was really cool looking so I shot it all up. Our kitchen is small, poorly lit (making dinner and other evening cooking sessions annoying and dangerous), and is unable to accommodate all of our kitchens tools, but it is capable of looking nice, it seems.
It is more than capable of driving cooks and bakers completely up the wall, however. But I really enjoy this shot, so at least one good thing came out of this kitchen (apart from delicious food).

Some of my Favorite B&Ws

Hey all, I know it's been a while, I'm going to try and start posting again, and look for an active third contributor so that triple phase can get back to the vision it use to be.

I've been doing lots of black and white film this year, and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you. Comment and enjoy!

I haven't watermarked these, but please respect that they are all my property. I hope you liked them!
