This is an eye catcher. The cat is in just the right position, peering over the edge.

I am out of sorts today. I do most of my blogging from my laptop which has developed a faulty power cord. That is where my recent photos have been downloaded. I will find a replacement today but would rather not get out as it is -6C today. Methinks I will locate one by telephone before I go out.

Oh dear, I thought that was a real cat for a moment!

Misalyn said...

I stared for a moment and wonder if it was a real cat lol.

Lovely sky.

I'll be posting my Skywatch later... 3 hours to go.

Happy skywatching and happy weekend.

Good effect! The same, I thought it was real.

In this location it seems unlikely that curiosity will kill that cat.

Vogon Poet said...

The other comments spared me the real-cat doubt: a clever and original sign!

Joan Elizabeth said...

Reminds me of the signs that Z posts ... I don't think I've seen many like this in Oz ... well spotted.

Lois said...

What a cute sign and a fabulous SkyWatch Julie. I really like this!

Riet said...

I thought it was real at first as well. Great sign and well captured. St Mary's was difficult to photograph, I thought I had blocked out the lights with the fountain but when I downloaded the shots the lights were there, although they aren't as distracting as I thought they would be. I might try and go in again with the other lens so I'm not mucking about with the tripod which was giving me all sorts of problems.

Hi Julie,
Thanks for visiting.
I've been three times in your wonderful country.
I love Australia.
Have a great weekend.

Cats are said to be poetry.

Thought as well that it might be real. A wonderful reason to look up. A Friday just as nice for you.

Karine said...

Great shot, I love it!!! And yeah, I know that the seasons Down Under are the opposite of the ones here in Canada :o) No jealousy whatsoever, in my opinion Christmas isn't quite Christmas without snow!

Virginia said...

I'm all about silhouettes lately. This is a grand one Julie.

Great shot. At first I thought it was a real cat. Still nice sky shot.
I don't agree with Karine. Christmas is Christmas where ever you live. I'm not religious, but I don't think it was snowing when Christ was born.

lazyclick said...

Lovely shot.

zemphoto said...

Great shot (maybe it is my bias toward cats that is influencing me:) ). Simple but conveys much - the essence of a good photograph.

Ebie said...

Julie, what a great composition and angle! I love the title too! The white clouds so soft and the blue so bright!

Paula said...

Cats only? There must be drama within.

Lew said...

Lovely silhouette against the beautiful sky! Our vet has adopted a stray cat that stays in the office. Last week when I took our cats in for a checkup and shots, the office cat calmly came over to check on each, then returned to his spot on the counter.

Mirage said...

Oh, how nice! love the curious cat!

Pyatshaw said...

Absolutely brilliant shot!

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

I hope your summer isn't too blisteringly hot.

Julie: Neat sky photo with the focus on the sign.

AWANG said...

Thanks to you Julie for a nice words on my photo.
Your shot are lovely & the cat look real.Have a wonderful weekend.

Al said...

Such a fun shot, with the dark silhouette and the writing on the sign showing what's really there.

CTG Ponies said...

What a cute sign!

Light and Voices said...

What a g-r-e-a-t idea for a vet sign! Thanks for showing it to us.

Cats are really curious about everything. Wonderful silhouette against the blue sky!

NatureFootstep said...

nice image with the black cat siluette and the nice sky behind it. :)

Janie said...

Great silhouette shot, and a fantastic sign for a vet!

vincibene said...

Originally shot!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

What a fun SkyWatch photo! The cat reminds me of my lady with the watering can in my post. I love the color of the sky and nice fluffy clouds, too.

Jilly said...

How fascinating. A vet just for cats? No dogs?

Julie said...

I think there could be a simple explanation for this. Frequently the houses in Paddington do not have a yard.
