[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This cat was just hanging, relaxing and looking at his world around Gotanda Station from the safety behind the fence. It was a cool day and the motor from the heater kept him warm.

I wanted to capture his personality so I had to crawl slowly on my knees to be at his eye level. Cats hear any noise and they quickly jump and run away. During my travels I have noticed that Tokyo has many beautiful pure white cats running around.

Nice capture!

I like how the cat is looking straight back at you. Eyes are very powerful, making this image quite expressive even though we dont see all of the cat.

Interesting idea to take it through a fence like this. Also, use of black and white is very good. The cat becomes much whiter, against the background.

Well done! TFS.
