Dot and Ollie

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 13 January 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

My mother-in-law, Dot, and my cat, Ollie. Great friends, as long as she pets him on his head, just so. She loves cats, and lost hers a while ago. And living in an assisted living apartment now, doesn't think she can take care of one on her own any more. So she comes over to pet my cat. And they both are grateful for the attention.

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

@marc battault: Marc, yes, in this case, Ollie is rather gentle and loving with Dot, although he can be a son-of-a-gun, he is gentle with her.
