Taking the path less beaten

While walking around Seattle’s International District, searching for some photos to take, I happened to stumble upon a small antique shop tucked away in an alley not too far from S. Main Street. What drew my eye immediately to the shop’s front window wasn’t the contrasting styles of Chinese pottery displayed next to a ceramic duck, but a cat napping and sunning itself.

Positioning myself across the sidewalk, I slowly raised my camera, hoping not to disturb the napping cat, I was able to fire off about three frames before the cat jumped down.

I dare to say, this is probably one of the most unique still life
photos I’ve ever taken and glad to have not taken the beaten path and instead ventured into this alleyway.

  1. Nice capture Jim, That cat looks like he belongs right there with those pots and the little animals on the shelf behind.
