Something I've Never Done Before

Call Me, Black Mountain, NC  -  2013

Yeah, I know, this is unexpected. I've never posted a photo of a cat on this site before. Now before you people start getting any strange ideas, let me state for the record that I am not now,  nor ever have been, and never will be a cat person. I am allergic to cats. I mean literally. Put me in a room with a cat, and in minutes my eyes are itching and watering, my nose is running like the Amazon, and I'm sneezing uncontrollably. I'd prefer to be pepper sprayed. I don't do cats.

However, I do think I know a potentially good photo when I see one. This cat sitting in a store front window looked like he had possibilities for a B&W. Since there was a pane of glass between me and this walking tear gas attack, I thought it would be safe to take his picture. Quickly. He kept staring at me with complete confidence, as if he knew he could completely incapacitate me any time he wanted to. As soon as I clicked the shutter, he looked away, no longer interested in me at all. Cats. I just don't get them.

    Love the picture but as long as there is glass between.
    I just don't get them.
    I really like the composition with the phone number under his face.
