Matahari's Portrait Photo

This is a photograph that I took on Tuesday (23-9-2008) when "Matahari" was approximately one year and 3 months of age. This photograph was a lucky chance shot as she just happened to be looking out of the bedroom window and I took a "Blind Photo" on approximation.

With my hand and camera out of the window grating I focused on her and shot the film without looking into the viewfinder.

This has been one of the best "Pet Photographs" that I took in my long history of amateur photography.

Judge for yourself. Isn't this a "Poster card" photo?

Hi Rudolph... Fine photo. Definitely a poster card one. I retitled it (I hope you don't mind) as it is a portrait (head and shoulders) of a beautiful cat.

Of course, Matahari is a special cat so you have a head start!

It's better than most postcards, Rudolf. You have to be lucky to get a shot like this, but the luck befalls those who seek it. No wonder you are happy with it - it's excellent!

Your photo captures a sweetness, and those stunning topaz eyes, just beautiful.
White cats have always been a favorite of mine, they are like a canvas, and their eyes, whether blue, gold, green or odd eyed, are like their crown jewels.

That's a lovely photo, it shows off Matahari really well. Such a beautiful cat...She's got lovely white colouring which looks stunning with her amber eyes!

  1. Saturday(22/8/2020) DEMISE OF ICONIC CAT MATAHARI, A CATALYST IN FORMATION OF CAT CLUBS IN INDIA :- Its with deep sadness that i Rudolph Andrew Furtado announce the death of my 13 years old non-human companion “Queen Cat Matahari” .She expired today morning at approx 0800 hrs after suddenly taking ill yesterday morning with the most probable cause being cancer combined with “Old age”.In human terms she was 68 + years old.She died peacefully surrounded by her human family and with her 11 year old kitten now “Tomcat Matata” keeping a vigil over her. 13 years + is a long lifespan and she filled my life with “Cat humour” and entertainment besides being the inspiration role model for creating “Cat Clubs” as well as a catalyst in formation of India’s first “Cat Show”.Now there is one less member in my household but the memories will live on.The image of her sitting on the window gallery ledge for the last 12 years will be missed by one and all.To quote Lord Alfred Tennyson , quote, “Its better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”.She was buried at iconic “PRABHADEVI BEACH” which is the sea facing graveyard of my previous two dog’s “Blondie” and “Lucky” as well as cat “Trixie”.Thanks to fisherman Shri Mahadeo for digging the grave at a time when the “Coronavirus Pandemic” is creating havoc and a scare among us all humans.Yes, the SEA always beckons the living as well as the dead . R.I.P “Matahari”
