I went out early this morning to catch the sunrise but this is what I got (above). Though at the coast well before the sun started to come up, it was nowhere to be seen because of the fog and the cloud cover. Instead, I captured this cat (left and below) in a playful mood. I have taken pictures of cats before – hundreds of strays are found everywhere in Bahrain – but they have always bolted after the first click. In this case, however, the more I clicked, the more the feline came towards the camera. And it even posed, played around, scratched itself against the tree, rolled over and over, stared, mewed as if in anger and ran here and there, always making sure it was never a few feet away from me. It was as if it was modelling, telling me to click away as much as I wanted yo. I got a rather “arrogant” look as I began to move away as if it were saying, “what, no more?” But, of course, I had to leave. I’d had enough. And, as I left, the sun, too, peeked from behind the clouds (bottom). “Yes, I’m here too. What about me?” Of course, it was not to be. I would come back another day – but only after reading the weather forecast!
