Couldn't resist this couple in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul:



Okay, maybe it's more sex than love but look at the smile on his face

Blondmom, that boy in your second pic looks exactly like the oldest boy of the next door neighbours ten years ago...

The boy in blondmom's second pic is my older brother (I am of course the blond girl.) I don't think I'm older than four, so it's a good thirty years ago

His ancestor Willem Adriaense "Lastname" came to Brooklyn NY with other Dutchmen in the early 1600's from Holland. There is some family speculation that he may have been of English or French Hueguenot descent, but his family had definitely been in Holland long enough to adopt the Dutch name spellings and usage. So perhaps my son and your neighbor are related eleven or so generations back.

Interesting! Who knows, they might indeed be related.

LOL I thought the first one was a gay wedding...

The second picture is great, Farclas. Funny, serious, caring and macho, all at the same time. Top!

Have you shown it to them, Steven? That is indeed a very 'embarrassing' photo! But a great photo nonetheless.

Pam - Good capture! Head-on action shots are difficult to convey; the swerve of the other pooch gives context and vitality. Well done!

Steven - Such bliss! Was it a snatch pic, or did you wait patiently for "that" moment?

Hans - Tnx for your kind words. Your first image, like that of Bob, shows that less can be more. Who needs faces? Well, the face does tell the story in your second . . .

I love the sleeping grandparents picture.

Hans, yes it would embarrass the hell out of them now. As adult cats they wouldn't even dare admit they might like or be dependent on each other, unless of course one of them needs a play partner to hide on the other side of the curtain... but that's different.

Farclas, yes it was a snatch shot, if you could call it that - a very slow motion snatch shot since the kittens were sleeping in that position. As usual, your shots are superb. That second picture is terrific, and shows that father and baby can make just as tender a moment as mother and baby.

Pam, you have a fantastic action shot there.

Lovely photo's guys!

I have to ask, what type of cat is Zorro? That gorgeous coat! I'm guessing Maine Coon?
