Reply Paulette 2013/05/21 at 00:48 (4 years ago) Growing up in Carmel, California, my husband, Don, remembers getting several kittens from Edward Weston, who lived in the Carmel Highlands. Reply Marcus 2013/05/27 at 11:56 (4 years ago) Is that true! Wow! I love your cat stories. Was he as cat friendly as the rumour says? Reply Catilda 2013/05/27 at 06:23 (4 years ago) Paulette, the book would be a perfect gift for your husband. Reply Paulette Smith 2013/05/29 at 05:58 (4 years ago) Don said Edward Weston was definitely as cat friendly as roumour says–his place was always overflowing with them. He particularly remembers one of the cats that looked a lot like the cat draped around Edward Weston’s shoulder in the colored photo above. This cat used to ride in his shoulder while he rode his bike around their 5 acre s in the Carmel Valley. Reply Marcus 2013/05/31 at 16:46 (4 years ago) Hahaha oh that is so cute! And what a photo it would have been of EW and the cat. What did he name them? Any themes? Like Hemingway I mean.
