Maneki Neko is a japanese fortune cat. The most common belief is that the left paw raised brings in customers, while a right paw brings good luck and wealth (Wikipedia). Anyway I like the little guy. Shot in front of a neat asian food store in munich.

That is one cute kitty. I like the mood in this picture, but think the two lamps in the upper left is somewhat distracting.

That's a great image! The composition and depth of field are fantastic.

Excellent bokeh, the eyes are immediately drawn to the Japanese fortune cat. Like the arrangement of all the teapots. Interesting and fascinating image.

Wow, how I envy that f/1.6! Just to let you know I voted for your blog for the 2011 awards!

He looks kind of lonely..... we like the darkness on the right side, gives the cat all the attention!

Charming items in this window. I love rummaging through places like this.

The kitty makes this image, but then I expect you knew this when originally framed this.

I love these little luck cats, especially the ones that wave. great capture with a subtle, "soft" feeling.
