Default Re: WHY WHY WHY??

I absolutely agree, it does depend on what the photograph is about: culture, history, relationships between humans and animals taking shape differently in different cultures and leading to different races of animals as a result. These aspects can be expressed in a photograph, but not (maybe?) in a studio photograph of a pretty cat.

To continue your argument... in Paris one has cemeteries where feral cats live, and I found (and photographed) the same in Cuba. And then there are cats of a type that are unique to a specific area, such as the Turkish white Van cats (with one blue and one amber eye); in Van there's even a white cat statue! So should one not be able to post a picture of the statue as well as the cat it's celebrating?

I say we should.
