Un Paio di Gatti di Vicolo (A Couple of Alley Cats)

Venice, Italy

We were lost when I took this picture and this nice cat tried to point us in the right direction, but he was wrong. No problem because Venice is probably the best place in the world to be lost.

  3. I love how the cat balances the man in this image. Perfect for black and white.
    thanks for the input on lenses. I do have a 50mm 1.8 (cheap but good) and will save for some of the nicer ones I'd like to have. Happy hunting this week.

  9. Funny, was just watching a film today with Katherine Hepburn called "Vacation in Venice"... she got a bit lost there too. May just have to go take a peak one of these days...

  11. As well as the two 'cats', there's also a nice bit of Venetian decrepitude.

  16. Oooh nice! Venice is definitely the place to get lost. Especially since you always end up somewhere you recognize (and that it's an island and you can't get far)!
