Basic Instinct by gilad Basic Instinct by gilad

It's in our nature to fear you
Even when you pose no threat
It's our basic instinct to imagine the worst
Please forgive our behavior from the other side

You seem harmless right now, walking with your head down
But we can't trust you further than we see you
Just as it is in our nature to fear you
It is your basic instinct to harm us

כשראיתי את הצילום הזה חשבתי על משהו אחר שהוא מעבר לפחד של החתולים מפני הכלב.
חשבתי יותר על ההילה הזהובה שנוצרה ממנו והשלווה בה הוא הולך לצד הבעלים שלו שאוהב אותו ומטפח אותו. לעומת הכלב ובעליו יושבים שני חתולי הרחוב מרופטים ורזים מבלי שיהיה לאיש אכפת מהם. אני חושבת שבצילום הזה אין יותר מדיי פחד מפני הכלב אלא דווקא קינאה שאותם חתולים כנראה לא ירגישו מעולם איך זה כשיש אדם שאוהב אותך ושייך לך. לאומת הכלב הם יצטרכו לדאוג לעצמם עד יום מותם מבלי לגלות את הצד הרך והאוהב שיש בבני אדם כלפי בעלי חיים.

This shot has so much drama that for a second I forgot how tongue in cheek this all is.

Beautiful depiction of tension and personifying of animals

there is so much to be said in this picture. you can almost here a conversation between the two cats!

"that thing better not come any closer..."
"yeah. if so, it's got a thing or two comin' "....

or something to that effect!
