This fine citizen saved this lost and forgotten kitten from imminent peril in the woods of Durham Township!

Thanks for stopping by, and thank you for all of the nice comments the last few posts! Sorry I haven't done much responding - getting ready for my show is taking up a lot of my time now. But I still love you. :)
Such pensive, innocent beauty in this picture - I love it!
I am so impressed by your vision of common life... these smoky eyes of a girl have just touched my heart... thank you for your extraordinary talent, I am a great fan of your pictures! Irina, Russia, Kazan-city.
You have some spectacular work. Each is more breathe-taking than the next. What camera do you shoot with? And how much do you manipulate in the computer?

This is amazing. I love her expression and the mood of it.
There is a massive potential in this photo.
The picture deserves to be sold.
Congratulations! Your gallerie is a dream! Fabulous
She looks like an angel in this picture!
- and your wordcraft is well!
As I went to each image I marveled at your incredible photography. Then this one stopped me. The eyes, expression and a rescued kitten. Emotional and beautiful.
You've got some beautiful work out here, Kathleen. I think this one's certainly one of the finest, but you know what just struck me a bit with the girl's eyes in this photo? It reminds me of Catholic statues I've seen. I *know* there's some Immaculate Conception sort of depiction of Mary somewhere that this makes me think of.
And if she saved that little kitten, there might be a lil' spark of Divine Light for sure. :D
Sorry to be the bearer of possible bad news but I have seen this on the above website belonging to Laurel Jacobs claiming it as her work!!!!
She has recently been banned from a website called Photography-Cafe for publishing stolen images!!!
Superb work you do by the way.
Laurel Jacobs has now removed in the region of 180 images from her website & other forums etc, including those images you have here on your blog.
