...I hunger for your touch,
God speed your love to me..."

Although I know that music isn't what brings us here, I just couldn't help to associate this photo with one of my many favorite songs, Unchained Melody.

This photo was taken last September on the day that we were on our way back home from the airport having gone to pick up my mother and her "owner", Titi!
On this photo, Titi was inside my car, impatiently waiting for us to get back from the restaurant. She hungered to get out of the car. The houses and sky are reflected on the car window.

With Picasa 3 I adjusted the colors with "I'm feeling lucky" and "soft focus".

Thank you for viewing!

Hello Lurdes,
That is a wonderful admission also the composition. I like so arranging pictures Fantasti creativity.
Thanks for your visit. Many greetings. Janusz

Hi Lurdes,

I thought you had worked with 2 layers.
The reflection works very good here.

Nice job!


Hi Lurdes
Innovative shot, a novel.
Great combination!
Try to get rid of noisy sky, a big challenge.
Well done.
Regards, Alireza.

Hi Lurdes
excellent idea to show this moment, cats are always great models for shots, amazing expression of his eyes, great work,

Olá Lurdes,
Trabalho diferente do seu estilo, mas com a qualidade habitual. As nuanças desse gato quase transparente dá uma certa dimensão espiritual (será por isso que você incluiu na categoria Transportation, embora o fato indicado na sua nota de estarem num veículo?).
Belos reflexos e enquadramento.
Tenha uma boa tarde

I really like this shot! Excellent moment !

Original view with a nice reflection effect. Well done !

Hello Lurdes
What a great idea! A simple shot - but you had to SEE it to capture it! We all need to be observant as well as technical.
Lovely cat too!
Regards, Leslie

I love this shot - and I know that look so well!
I really like how you merged the cat's face and the houses in a soft, intriguing way.
