Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

“He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby.” – Chanakya

My favourite street cat catching warm sunshine on a hot tin roof. I’m not even sure if this photo qualifies for this week’s challenge; the roof tiles are near and the sweet orange kitty is far.

This is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far.

    I like the way the kitty’s color blends well with the roof tiles.
    Can I adopt this kitty? 🙂

    Ciao Jennifer

    The picture is great, the cat darling! Hot tile, hot tin it matters not! It is a pleasant sight to behold! Sure you don’t want to work for a photo magazine?????? Have a beautiful day! In time the cat will warm up to you and not just the hot roof! We had a Feral cat that took almost a year to warm up to us and my old Cocapoo, then she was ours for many a year! May God Bless! Keep the articles coming they are so enjoyable and interesting!

    • Thank you kindly Rosemarie. I really hope the kitty warms up to me. He was born in the empty house beside ours and I would go every day to watch, only watch as the mom was very protective. I hope he comes around.

    Beautiful touch… Do check out my contribution. 🙂

  10. I love it…I wonder (until he/she saw you snapping the pic) how far away the cat’s thoughts were 🙂

    You have done very well with this one. Depending on one’s perspective… the cat can be either “near” or “far”… which makes this a very solid image for the theme.

  12. cute cute cute cute! 😀
