Woman and Cat

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/8 second F/3.2 ISO 100 8 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Superb portrait - amazing how a prop (or even better, a pet) can add so much to the character of a portrait.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful capture of these two!! You can definitely see how much they enjoy each other's company. Although I must say that the cat appears to love the camera lens. :-) Processing in B&W really brings out the nice contrast in the cat's paws, face and whiskers.
