Greta Garbo

Several years ago, I gave a home to an abandoned street-kitten, found on the island of Cheung Chau. She had been traumatized in some way, and to this day prefers her own company – rarely coming out from her hiding place beneath the bed. In one of her few moments of self-confidence, I took this portrait, surprised that Greta allowed me to get close enough with a Canon 5D2 and 24-105 lens.
