Confessions Of A Dangerous Cat Lover
fantastic title.... and the note too!!!
About your shot.... next time could you give us the colours of your eyes??? ;-)))
Great self portrait Ayda, your pp work is very impressive. Well done
Thank you for sharing so one of your no doubt many loves there. Get well Bodmin!
I realy like your stare here. It is entrancing. Reading about your choice of name for your dear cat is most interesting. I have heard of this legendary cat. It reminds me of other stories from the moors of Wales. Especially those penned by Emily Bronte.
I get this notion of passion from your looks, although to be honest I have very little to go on. I would say that also there is a softness here, much softer than the 'Kathy' that I am thinking of. So hope to see a more full and inner revealing self portrait some time.
Life is for the living, in more ways than can be said. So here is to life, and your dear cats health. Slainte.
You like B&W (smile) As I am also a catlover and because you have such beautifull gentle eyes I gladly add points to this photo, well done!
A Valentine for all cat lovers. Thank you. I love cats as you can see on my photos. You have a big heart adopting Bodmin. I like the self portrait of yourself. Even your eyes look like 'cat' eyes. The idea of putting the mug up to your face is very creative, and I like that.
Tip: When you sharpened an image, make it the last thing you do after post processing and resizing for the web. This way you don't loose any quality.
Sorry, but ran out of points this morning.
Agreed with the comments above.
I enjoy the grain in this and lighting...
Nice job on the *a* restoration.
Hi Ayda (nice to use that name :) ),
You did a lot to make this into something special.
I owed a cat when I was really young... had to do away with it because of allergic reactions.
The story of "The Beast Of Bodmin" reminds me of the Sherlock Holmes story, "The Hound Of The Baskerville". It has about the same setting.
I love your picture, but what I like most is the shape of your eyes, and the look in them! Really beautiful! Would like to see them in natural color, in natural setting... your whole face ;) You think that might be possible...?
A great self portrait(I really like the graininess) and an even better story. I adopted my older cat Max just before he would have been put down and he was only a kitten. But at the shelter I went to they only keep them for 2 weeks. Whew-I made it in time to save him. He is still with me over 14 years later. My younger cat, Lily, was part of a litter of a stray mama cat. I adopted Lily and she has flourished from the runt of the litter to the very, very content, and large, cat she is today. Cats and all animals, really, can be amazing and very resilient. ps-really love the mug, too!!
Very nice photo and such a nice note :) Very well done, puts a big smile on my face :)
hi ayda... a very nice photo.. with great meanings.. i read ur notes..and it really touched my heart.. my ex-girlfriend is a great cat lover like you... and it sounds very familliar to me.. those experience. accompany her to the human society center to adopt catds (and dogs too).. rushing to vet clinic... etc..this and that.. i really misses her and her cats a lot...

Wow Aiada, how I love your eyes! Great eyes, I like the angly they make the most. A bit cat like...
Your photo is great too, good crop and creative PP. The hard light on your forehead combines very nice with the overall grain. You completed is with a well composed note.
As for the cat, I hope so too he will recover soon. He's in a good place finally, and you may be proud you have him and to care for. He's lucky after all...
Thumbs up, Richard

Clever portrait. Your eyes resemble a cat's eyes here, too. I like this, the composition, the grain, the fun.
