The best of 2017 #5: Steve

I took this photo of my new kitty, Kumi, with a Leica X2.   This is my best photo of 2017, because this resonates the most with my thought that photography at its best reflects who we are.  I picked up Kumi the day after my mom died, and I had to confine her to the master bedroom with the new cat tree I bought for her.  I had to use my flash, and I love how this photo captures Kumi reaching out to me and her beautiful, expressive face and eyes.
