It may be my appearance, or possibly something less obvious, but either way, cats tend to react rather negatively towards me — particularly so when I’m trying to take their picture. An increasingly comical state of affairs that is perhaps best captured in the demeanour of this far from shy Tokyo alley dweller.
Yet that said, in the same area lives the feline photographed below. An animal so utterly oblivious to its surroundings that my, usually unwelcome presence, made no difference whatsoever; not even the lazy lift of an eyelid. It simply, and deeply, slept on.
