Caramel – Tortishell Cat sitting on an antique ladder in the 16th-century library of Château Saint Loup.
It seemed almost surreal to be photographing Caramel scampering around the library of this virtually untouched seventeenth-century Château. She was totally oblivious to the pulls her claws were making in the fabric of a possibly priceless antique chair. Rachael couldn’t help but wonder about the characters who had climbed this ladder or sat in this chair contributing to the permanent indentations in the seat. Rachael was also amazed that Caramel sat still long enough for her to capture a sharp image of her.
Château Saint Loup also known as ‘Puss in Boots Castle’ was completed in the 1600s by Claude Gouffiers and his son Louis. The Gouffiers were also Marquis of Caravaz in Italy, the from whom Charles Perrault created the tale and the characters of Puss in Boots.
This image was published in Rachael’s book The French Cat
Caramel was photographed by Rachael using her H3 Hasselblad Digital Camera in Natural Light in the library of 16th Century Château Saint Loup, in the village of Saint Loup Lamairé in the Poitou-Charentes region of France.
Rachael recommends this image to be framed using a Black, White, Oak, or Dark Wood Frame, with or without a white border.

We have a collection of beautifully crafted Wood Box frames available in 5 different colour ways to choose from for framing your Fine Art Prints: Black, White, White Wash, Grey and Dark Wood.
Fine Art Prints can be framed full bleed, or you can choose the option to have a white border around your image to separate the image from the frame. If you choose to have a border, the image size will be smaller; for example, if you choose a 10x12 inch print with a border, your final product size will be 10x12 inch but your image size will be closer to 8x10 inches. See sample photo.
