Color and Still Life

This is a small shop in a little town in Italy.  I walked by it every day and was struck by the color pallet and composition.  Just needed something to help bring out and define the mirror.  I noticed that this cat would get in the same bowl every day at about 3 PM and stay until dark.  That kitty should get the employee of the year award because twice as many would be customers stopped by to look at the cat and end up seeing something they liked and would purchase it.  I kidded the owner by accusing her of training the cat as a sales tool but no, the kitty just liked that bowl and would lay in it to watch the people go by.  The time of day was great for adding a nice warm and soft light to the scene.
