One wants out and the other wants in.

The one inside is Mr. Kitteh who showed up at our house as a stray a couple of years ago. This one showed up last summer and it was either pregnant or had worms. I did not want to let it in but I did try and leave food out for it. But then it disappeared and I don't know what happened to it.

this was in my personal top 10. the layering of near and far is fascinating, connected by reflections and eye contact. a thoroughly satisfying picture.

The reflection is such a bonus. It's very pretty albeit a bit sad ;)

Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

B&W presentation was a wise choice to call attention the action of what is going on in the scene. I feel color would distract from the action of the silently communicating cats. Even though I cannot see the face of the cat behind the window, I can see that they both are making eye contact from the look of the cat on the outside. One cat looks out upon the cat that is outside luxuriating in being free and outside. The cat behind the window seems to be pining away or maybe jealous of the cat on the outside; he desires to be out and about.

The odd case of the prince and the pauper ;) I have an indoor feline friend of my own and have seen a similar scene a couple of times. Really like how you captured this with the hint of reflection in the window. (just commenting, no vote)
