As someone commented: “Such disdain – I love this!”
Indeed, ‘disdain’ is the perfect word to describe this lovely creature’s attitude. I was out photographing walls, and the wall with its glint of gold drew my attention – when I saw this regal cat, adding a special ‘dimension’ to the wall, and vice versa.
So this ended up about equal parts “wall” and “cat”. And feral cats are such an unavoidable (and charming) feature of Istanbul, in its own disdainful way, this cat represents “Istanbul” as well!
