...My name is Paulinha.

I love my "mama" and she loves me.
Every morning I rush to lie on her lap while she sits on her mother's couch having breakfast.
Sometimes she lets me sleep with her but very rarely. She says that my presence in her bed makes her itchy.
Tonight she's letting me sleep with her because tomorrow is Saturday and she doesn't have to get up early. I'm so excited!!
Thank you for visiting me :)
My "mama" says that she used PHOTOFILTRE to post me as her CTD#28 and that the only thing she did on the photo was a slight crop and a slight revival of the color of my lovely blue eyes!
She asked me to wish you all a very nice weekend :)

gostei da posição do gato e do POV que vc fez para captura da imagem.. resultando em uma ótima composição.
boas cores, os olhos do gato são bem bonitos e a luminosidade esta ótima para a foto.




Very quick of you to grab the camera and catch the cute kitten in this pose. I like the perspective you have shown with the wall. The kitten looks adorable. The eyes are a nice blue, but was it necessary to "revive" them for the shot?


hello Paulinha
please tell your mama she well capture your image in good composition.I know you may moving all the time but she still present your cute and blue eye in good sharpness.good idea to let far away depth blur.hope to see you next time :)

Paulinha, you are sooooo adorable! :)
Such a cute portrait, peeping from the hole. It must be a joy discovering all these holes in the wall :)
From the photo is very obvious that you "mama" loves you. It can be felt greatly.
And that is also the greatest value of every photo...to transfer the emotion to us who are looking at it.

My best,

HI Lurdes,
that's sooooo cute, a lovely moment with this pretty cat.
Just fantastic, thanks

Olá Lurdes!
Que belo flagrante!
Felicidades para você e para Paulinha em 2009!
Sinto falta dos comentários da Els(hendrika) ... O que aconteceu? Ela se afastou do TL?
Um abraço,

Maravilha, a composição, o olhar e especialmente a limpidez dos olhos :)
