Towards the end of our photo walk on Saturday, Jen and I spotted this cat sunbathing on the ledge of one of Coupeville’s shops. Like a lot of animals I find lately, he patiently posed for a minute before scurrying away.
Finding the beauty in ordinary things

Very nice capture – the diagonal acts like a interesting line that leads you into the cat
Thank you! He was the perfect subject in the perfect place at the right time!
The colours really work well together and his direct stare is so interesting, it really makes me wonder what was he thinking about. Great shot!
perfect composition… Beautiful cat
Thanks! I loved his orange coat against all the other colors.
I agree with Lisa and David…It’s the tension in the cat’s expression that makes this portrait so interesting. I also like the composition and how the diagonal of the rooftop and the lines of the window and building siding converge. Nice shot!
I think the cat’s expression comes from us trying to walk slowly across the street within camera shooting distance. He did not trust us!
To me, it looks like you interrupted it’s stalking of some poor prey! Hehehe. 😛
I agree with Lisa, I prefer these kind of shots over the “just sitting there” kind! 🙂
Maybe he was after a little mouse or something and we ruined it for him. 🙂
Pretty kitty, and great photo too! You can see that the cat’s natural curiosity and it’s instinct to flee, are battling it out. To me this is more interesting than a photo of a cat sitting all relaxed.
That’s exactly how I saw it – he wanted to run away, but he also wanted to see what were were doing with those strange objects in our hands clicking at him.
