  13. James...You made my night with this one. As I looked at it I thought to myself....”This looks just like Florence with the cats standing guard.” Then I saw Florence, Italy. I adored the day we spent in Florence. Went to the coolest handmade paper store and ate heavenly food. Love your picture and it is especially nice in the black and white. genie

  16. I think they're just about to leap into the basket and snuggle down!

  17. Aha, what would the street be without them. It would lose its character and purpose for, to be patted by feline paws is to be given a purpose in life.

    An evocative picture no less. Very nice.

  19. What an interesting composition James! I like how you lined up the bicycle and the cats.
    It seems one of the guardians is interested in something else! :)

  26. Love the clarity of the cats compared to the rest of the image. And the one is looking right at you! The other seems distracted from his modeling job. Makes me wonder what caught his (her?) rapt attention...

  31. Delightful! Love how the focus is on the cats and not the bike, but the bike is still part of the shot.
