Diptych: Gone

Last month, our cat, Mister Meowmers, passed away at the age of 16. He was a beautiful cat, and a great friend. It's been hard dealing with his absence over the past weeks. I miss him so much. This diptych shows two of the places he used to like to hang out.

Mister loved to sit on the kitchen table and look out the window, unknowingly getting our placemats covered in his foofy fur. The foot of the bed was also a favorite place of Mister's, where he spent many hours napping and getting petted by Katie and me.

While Katie and I still have our little black cat, Chooks (who we love very much), the apartment still feels lonely without our Mister Meowmers. This diptych attempts to express the feeling of emptiness I experience whenever I glance at one of his favorite spots.

I used my Nikon F2 with a 20mm f/2.8 Nikkor lens, and Portra 160 film. Thanks for looking.
