The Feline Quotable Photo Series – Zoey in Motion
I always enjoy quotes about cats and thought it would be interesting to apply them to images of my own cats. Dan has taken such a stunning collection of photos throughout the years that I felt this would be an enjoyable and unique way to share them with you in the months to come. In the first of the series, this photo of Zoey exquisitely captures the essence of both motion and stillness in the quote by George F. Will in which he compares the cat to a graceful vase.
Zoey is captured by the camera lens standing in a room barren of any furniture or lighting. We were in the process of renovating, so the light that came into the room was natural and cast a warm glow over her tawny coat. The overall washed out effect of the walls and the floor complimented her stance so perfectly, that it does appear she is fluid within the stillness. Her slim and willowy body mimics that of a priceless Ming vase and it would seem she is a fragile work of art. To fully enjoy the photo, please click on the image to enlarge it.
