Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

    GOSH!!! SO MUCH TO LOVE IN THIS ONE!!! I just wanna snuggle right up and gaze outta that beautiful window with him!

  • Wow, thanks RR!! He was watching the rain and blowing leaves with such concentration I had time to get my camera and take a few shots before he moved. He actually loves water in any form and would have been happy to go outside! :)))

    A lovely kitty with such a beautiful, sleek coat. I really like this image. It’s reflective, a bit dreamy and calming.

  • Thanks so much!!!! Yes, he is a beautiful cat. My son named him Squishy and it IS appropriate :))

    Oh yeah, from the inside he! Not getting wet at all….lol! Great picture of him!

  • Thank you for the generous comment, Anne-Marie! Like all cats, he’s not too fond of getting soaked – but he loves chasing the drops! :)))
