Recoleta Cemetery 2: Lunchtime
A lonely orange cat peers around the corner of a tomb in the Recoleta Cemetery of Buenos Aires, hoping that some pigeons might join him for lunch.
I was once asked which of my photographs was my favorite; well, this is it. The hungry look on the cat's face as it watches the oblivious pigeons, the posture of patient waiting that it took, and the fact that it ignored me completely- I can't help but hope both that he caught himself a pigeon, and that the poor pigeons escaped to live another day. I am ambivalent, of both minds on the matter, but I think I'm most glad that I don't know the outcome.
