In honor of spring and the fervent bloom of the forget-me-nots in my yard, I am featuring this photo of my Sophie in my Marketplace.
Sophie always watched me leave the house, but she also like to play around with the curtain—often I had to inspect the lace to see her white fur through the mesh, but she was always there.
On this day, in the late afternoon, the warm spring sun angled into the window imparting a creamy tone to the lace, and the forget-me-nots I’d planted in pots in the windowbox were in full flower. I had closed the curtains because I’d be gone after dark, but Sophie managed to find an open spot to peer through at me.
It’s one of my favorite memories of Sophie, and one of the favorite photos in my collection. I recently wrote a blog article on The Creative Cat entitled “Just Take the Picture Already” advising people to take as many photos of their pets as possible and sort through them later. This photo was one of the inspirations for that article—I really didn’t want to stop and take out my camera and focus and hope the light was right and so on…but I did, and I’m so glad I took the time. I have a treasured memory that I can enjoy myself and share with others.
This photo is available as a 5″ x 7″ greeting card and as a matted and framed photo in two sizes. Please visit my Etsy store for more details!
