corner view: animals



some of you will recognise this photo - i took it just over a year ago, and it's from my very first roll of film shot with my vintage praktica. it's when my love story with film really started.

oh, and it's my cat, riga. she came to live with me back in 2004, after she'd been at the clinic at the pet rescue place in berlin for over a year. she's a right little madam, quite feisty and hissy. but i love her. and she loves me. or so i'd like to think.

for more corner view animals, take a look at jane's spain daily (she's on holiday, but the corner view link list is up on her blog).

p.s.: i built this windowsill for her so she can watch the street. she's a three-legged cat and couldn't sit on the narrow old windowsill. the neighbours all know her, since she's sitting at the window most of the time (when she's not sleeping, that is). people actually addressed me on the street, going: oh, you're the one with the black cat! - i am, indeed.

I think she found herself a good home and a lovely view out onto the streets. She looks so big and soft. Lovely cat.

What a beautiful cat! Also, never heard that name before does it mean anything.

It's funny, I also have this one picture from my first roll of film that I love and somehow associate with 'how my love for film started' :-)

I am touched by people who take such good care of their animals - and who rescue them too. Also thoughtful (and perceptive) of you to build the windowsill :^)

I am a fan of your blog and photographs...

I love black cats. And I love that Riga has found a loving home. I wish i could take on a cat from a rescue center but I am allergic to all cats but the breed I've got, Devon rex.
