Thank you all so much for the amazing comments, faves and brilliant votes on this. It was taken a few mins after my Street Photography blue ribbon just round the corner in the Latin quarter of Paris, who can fail but to get a bit inspired there, especially when they have such a beautiful model so readily available? Thanks to Shari for her patience and ability to stand in the right place at the right time ;)

I'll post up a couple of outtakes soon.

From the time you were there, in February, to August, when I took the picture, a lot of graffiti appeared but thankfully, le chat was protected

I really like the balance of the wall painting and the girl, with her red flower matching the red in the painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2012 06:54:44 AM
Nice composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2012 06:06:38 AM
Would have been fantastic irony if it was actually raining when you took this!
Nice crisp clean shot and I like the processing on this

A blue I suspect, on all levels. Well done with a famous image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2012 10:09:03 PM
This is so good, lots to see, nicely photographed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a strange name for a street! I'm assuming the street art was put there after someone saw the sign? Very interesting, a great street photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2012 04:02:38 PM
oooh!! How wonderful!

Ok, back again. Better than wonderful! bumped up to a 10

Yup. still a 10.

What an enchanting combination of whimsy (a fishing cat?) and grittiness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2012 10:07:20 PM

Excellent.

Cool photo. Interesting and worth looking at in B&W as well. Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2012 10:11:35 PM
Great capture, with the diverging gazes and the cables to separate the scene. And it works so well in colour. Black and red guiding though the scene. Reality was truly cooperative on the day. Outstanding image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2012 10:26:37 PM
Nicely done. Love the colors. Pretty girl too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2012 06:49:59 PM
Very cool image. Works on many levels.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2012 03:29:35 PM
Very cool. I could definitely see this hanging in an art display somewhere.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2012 09:53:01 AM
What a smart photo. The red flower is a great tie-in to the umbrella. Love the colortone processing too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2012 10:40:59 PM
Seems a tad set up to me merely because i would probably do that ;)
Interesting find here for sure and a nice result. A real black cat would have been amazing to add to all this ;)

Terrific composition, balance, whimsy, and image. Love the red flower to 'match' the red umbrella.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2012 10:00:07 AM
Wonderful. I'd love to lensbaby this scene.

Seems she is a bit shy, what a pity..love the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2012 10:28:50 PM
now this is how to take a picture of someone else's art. you add your own touch, well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2012 09:52:02 PM
So much to see, and it's all good. Such good flow. Gotta bump this one another point. Should be way up top.

I love this image, it has an over the top, quirk factor. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2012 02:23:26 PM
I almost didn't like it, then I did. I have seen this picture before, sans fille. The cat didn't catch a fish then either. It's better this way, with the pretty girl, as is almost everything. Thank you. 7.

She was inclined to pay him no mind.
His kind offer cattily declined,
he instead gave shelter to the fishing feline.

Great street photography - love the juxtaposition of the real and unreal; reality and imagination. The colors and capture are perfect. I also love learning about and seeing new places - interesting street and history.

It's the magenta flower in her hair that makes it all work.
