Cats

Let's be honest: we never set out for the sole purpose of photographing cats. Nevertheless, we are extremely fond of felines, and when we run across one or more in the course of taking pictures of this or that place, we usually avail ourselves of the opportunity to take their portrait. Over the years, we have accumulated a small collection of cat photographs in this fashion. On this page, we present a selection of such images. Some of these have appeared on our web site already, but many have not been used before.

We happily dedicate this page to Snoopy, long gone but still much talked about and remembered fondly.
