Man and Cat, on Sixth Avenue

Man and cat, 6th Avenue
Photo by myself on Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.

A man and a cat sat in the cold on Sixth Avenue.

I've been walking by this spot every weekday for work, and have watched the cat grow up from a tiny kitten, starting last Fall. Often, both cat and owner are fast asleep.

At first I felt very cynical about this arrangement. Over time though, I saw how (relatively) happy the cat is, how caring his owner is, and how generous New Yorkers can be. There is a cat litter, a scratching pad, cat food, and several different cat jackets.

When I took this photo and spoke with the guy, a woman stopped by to donate a breakfast muffin. There are actually two different guys who take care of the cat, switching back and forth in shifts. At night, it has been very cold, with brisk winds.

I love your work. Do you use a digitizing service? I have an endless pile of photos, slides, and negatives that I am having scanned with a company called ScanDigital. One of the only companies that does all their scanning in house in the United States.

This is my http://shopexpressreviews.com/! Online shopping is booming as people find it way too easy and convenient to purchase the products by just sitting at home in front of the computer, put in some information and click a few buttons. However, it’s not that easy to do a business on Amazon, Ebay and sites alike. How to attract customers to your store and How to keep their patronage are always the big questions.
