Windows and Reflections Part 2

As a followup to yesterday's post, here's another in my series of window shots. When I took this photo, my intention was to capture the gentleman in the foreground who was sitting at the table with a pen and sketch book in front of him. I wanted to capture the details of what was on the page of the sketch book, but that was impossible to do without severely limiting the rest of the contents of the photo. I checked the image on my LCD screen after I walked away and it looked to me like an OK shot.

When I uploaded the images for the day to my computer and looked in detail, this shot jumped out at me. That cat's face above and to the right of the artist made the whole picture for me. I knew it was a cartoon cat, but couldn't place the name directly. Google to the rescue. It's Felix!

They eyes of the cat looking directly down on the artist, and the artist's spaced out gaze, combined with the self-absorbed look on the face of his companion make this shot sing for me.
