waiting, impatiently

I took this shot several years ago
The Silo,
a cooking school/specialty shop
in New Milford, CT
the late Skitch Henderson & his wife, Ruth
owned/ran it
they opened this old barn to house/feed feral barn cats
This one was waiting, impatiently for me to go away

  2. Now that is an impatience I can well believe... it's a cat thing.

  5. Such a great photo for waiting, impatiently...love the little kitty on the roof.

    Skitch Henderson was a favorite of my Dad's and I got to listen to the colorful stories surrounding his life...what an incredible talent he was. From the tax evasion debaucle to The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, who was one of his best friends.

  6. I love people who help animals

    the shadow of the light fixture is so cool and the light in general is wonderful

    the cat is regal, king of the roof

  11. Cats often have little patience for the impertinence of human type critters.

  15. I love everything about this shot. The subject is almost hidden in the details, but the photograph is all the stronger for that. The blue sky, the bare tree, the light fixture...all combine to make this one of my favorites. It wants to be a poem, I think!

  16. The Silo is the BEST place. Lauren and I, along with a bunch of friends went there for a wine tasting class. It was totally wonderful, and what a gorgeous area! (Went in October - trees were magnificent.)
