Ah que dó!
O lugar está abandonado e o gatinho é tão lindo, está sozinho!
Espero que ele só esteja de passagem!

JM, you really do have a gift for turning decay into art.

It is sad to see abandoned, decaying houses. They have such potential if renovated.

Wonderful photos although it is sad to see the decay. The "decay" posts and photos you have shared are always poignantly beautiful. I did notice that the cat had on a collar so at least he is not homeless.

I was about to say the cat doesn't seem to mind and then I saw the smaller photo. This place really has some serious decay.

That is an excellent cat photo! Love the colors and detail. This image has such presence and personality! The concept of the passing of time means not much to other than humans.

Seemingly well fed puss, in this decay.

Lois said...

The cat looks to be well taken care of at least!

The cat looks very pleased despite the state of the house:)

I agree with brattcat, you do have a way of turning decay into art, but again it is sad to see the abandoned houses. It doesn't seem to bother the cat though, does it!

Cats are aliens. I am sure. The decay attracts and disgusts at the same time, so interesting.

A little whitewash would do wonders--make it look like new.

By the way, my cat, Mandu, says "Hi" to your sleepy cat.

Decay? I think the cat would be offended. He's looking pretty good.

Kate said...

Looks as though the cat is curious about you!! Brattcat is right...great creative photo.

So sad to see so much decay. the cat does have a color on so someone lives around there. MB

The sleepy cat looks puuuurfect in that setting.

It is always a pleasure to photograph a cat!

Randy said...

What a cute cat and a great old building. Did he follow you home?

Nice composition and color!

Francisca said...

I'm not a cat person, but VP may be right. And yesterday I found a cat to capture with my lens too. :-) [The image of the church buttress repetition was definitely my favorite, too. Did you enlarge it?]
