Mitch Spence level-classic November 21, 2013

Good for you and the bokeh here, Nikki. Just lovely. I thought at first the kitty was perched in a knitted hat, but I see it's probably a birdbath, comfy and lazy in the sun. #10904029

I'm slow getting around to commenting on all of the B&W images, but also wanted to tell you thanks for helping the upload go so smoothly!
I love this photo, the kitty looks like a little princess sitting there. And very elegant also in black and white! #10904989
