Pet Store Owner

Man with Cat

This pet store owner was allergic to cats, but didn't tell me. I had asked him to hold the cat for a shot and shortly let it go while I was getting into position. The cat, being a cat, was curious and came to me while on the counter and sniffed my lens shade. I thought, "why not take the shot? couldn't hurt". I didn't have time to refocus, so the man is not as sharp as I would have liked. The lead photographer liked the shot as much as I did, so we went with it anyway; front page, half spread.
