Artist's Description

I’m not sure what exactly it is that draws me to this photograph but ever since I transferred it from my camera I can’t help but stop and glance at it when I am going through my photo library . So today I opened it and tried to figure out why I feel this shot is so special.(thats my criteria before uploading)

Now the obvious answer would be because it is a photograph of my Sissy, that alone makes it special but that alone doesn’t mean it gets uploaded.

After staring at it for a while, I realized that somehow, on this day, I was able to capture a look, capture a moment that is only about Sissy.

Having 3 pure white cats gives a person many, many, many photographs of white cats in a photo library. LOL I have at least 20 old hard drives that are full of photographs and guaranteed 60 percent of those are of white cats.

So as I am rolling through all of these pictures and all of a sudden something catches my eye it’s a reason to stop. My first reaction felt something like “hey, I know her” . I love when photographs do that, allow you to recognize not just a face but someone’s soul as well.

This shot of Sissy may be just my own thing but when I look at it I see this slide show in my mind of memories over these past 9 years. This look is for me, she doesn’t look at anyone else the way that she looks at me. It’s a look that I had to earn over the years and one I am honored to receive.
My Sissy just doesn’t like to be social, not with cats or people, well, just one person, me. She is the only Mama cat I have ever known that wanted me to see her babies after she had them, she was so proud of them and when I would hold them she would just purr so loud. She never hid them or even tried to. For me, earning the trust of an animal like this is a pretty big deal. Feeling loved by her has been a highlight in my life.

So, that is what this photograph does for me and so it met the criteria. LOL

Sissy is Mikey’s litter mate, and this photograph was taken through a window where she seldom ever has enough nerve to sit. (she stays up in my room usually) I was in the garden and she wanted to see I guess and when I looked up I saw this incredibly warm face staring back at me.

I processed the photo in Topaz Clean 3. (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this plugin)
