About Me

Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Picture of the Day: Hemingway's Cats

Ernest Hemingway, commonly considered among the best -- if not the best -- American author of the 20th century, lived for quote doe time in the city of Key West, in the Florida Keys.

His time there is well documented, and both his house and several of his favorited bars are local tourist attractions.

If, by chance, you visit the Hemingway House, you will encounter dozens of cats -- the so-called "Hemingway Cats" -- descended from original pets of his. Many f them have a genetic disorder giving them six toes on their front paws instead of the usual feline five.

You can read more about them here: http://www.hemingwayhome.com/cats/

One of Hemingway's Cats' descended. Aloof, as a cat should be.
