I never saw the cat. I don’t know why but it wasn’t until I saw the negative that the cat made his presence known and made this image one of my favorites.

I find it very difficult to edit my own work but easy to edit others. I’m far to emotionally attached to my work and so battle daily with making a decision. Editing is part of the photographers daily routine whether its looking at contact sheets, a computer screen or in your head. Sometimes I’ve feel almost OCD about it, churning away like a hamster on a wheel.

Some images just jump straight out and grab you like a lunatic and they become burnt into your memory and never forgotten. When this happens you have an image that will stand the test of time. When I saw the cat thats exactly what happened.
