This may be the most interesting photo (from an "arty" aspect) that I have taken. I like the composition and lighting, all by chance; I was on a moving boat. It's purpose here has no greater meaning than to change the mood away from more serious stuff.
It was taken in February 1972 in Bangkok. Imagine an impressionable young American, experiencing the fascinating world of klongs and having a new camera. This photo could have been taken in any number of locations (there is no evidence of the unique watery environment), but I was on a boat. I can still picture the location and try to imagine life in this house (impossible). Anyone not knowing the locale, can still imagine what might be going on in the cat's mind. Is it thinking about mice or deploring the daily invasion of tourists?
