just gotta say ..
i'm stoked ..
was looking forward to another tiniest violin .. and that would have been two in a row ..

but then Don stepped in and boosted it up to over 6 ..

i dont know whether to be grateful or grateful .. lol ..
gratitude being my 'thing' atm ..

anyway .. thankyou i'm very happy to be hanging in your fantasy gallery .. as i feel i'm usually too precise for you .. !! .. ;)

and just to say .. this is my daughter's cat .. and i was visiting her ..
i was trying to get a good shot of the dried arrangement .. and then molly the cat came and had a sniff ..
i was so lucky to get a photo of that moment ..
its interesting .. when you bring gratitude into your life .. for everything .. not just the good stuff .. then wonderful things happen ..
and animals know a lot more than we give them credit for ..
obviously on some level she knew that her being in the photo would make it so much better .. lol .. ;)

thankyou guys for the comments and votes .. both 'good' and 'bad' .. :)

I really like the crispness in detail and love the spontaneity of your daughter’s cat in the scene. Well done!

subtle and marvelous at the same time. the cat just slowly comes into view, and you realize that the cat is on your level, an observer just like you, except better at it.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy gallery
