I was actually hunting for some Gloomscapes shots on that grey November afternoon last year, when I spotted this cat. I love the contrast of the warmness of its fur with the bleak surroundings.
I have added a new hashtag to my blog, other-peoples-cats, because you know… of course.
I think those are crows, though I still can’t tell the difference between a raven a and a crow.
This is one of my favourite pictures. I took it last year–once again, from my window.
Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December;
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow;—vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore—
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore—
Nameless here for evermore.
Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven
