Cat on a Windowsill

I was missing in action yesterday (clambering up a hill with my camera) so my Friday post will this week be a Saturday post. As you will see, I've chosen not so much a window with a beautiful external view as a rather surprising piece of window photography. While it's certainly different from the usual photos and paintings of indoor-to-outdoor scenes featured here, it caught my eye and I wanted to share it with you.

Of course, whether you like this photographic poster is pretty much dependent on whether you are a cat lover or not. This windowsill has a feline occupant, who has been photographed through a semi-sheer curtain made more translucent by the sunlight shining through it. The curtain gives the image a diffuse and almost ghostly quality.

The cat is, according to the title, an orange tabby (which over here we would affectionately call a ginger cat). Unless you have better cat identification skills than I do, you wouldn't know this from simply looking until you examine the slight parting in the curtains, where you can indeed catch a glimpse of ginger fur.

This unusual image comes from photographer Todd Gipstein who has several windows in his large collection of photographic art prints, including the Open Window with View of Tuscany already featured in this blog.

This one won't give you that 'fake window' effect but is a striking image in its own right that will make you look twice. A particularly nice choice for cat lovers.

The five available print sizes range from 9 by 12 inches up to 30 by 40 inches. Also available as a stretched canvas print or ready-framed.
