Ted embraces the dark side (Photo Hunt - Scary)


This week's entry for Friday Ark and Carnival of the Cats. Also my entry for this week's Photo Hunt. The theme is scary and Ted has a temper that would scare a Leopard!

This is a photo??

Looks like a pop art painting to me! :D

Oh, I looked at it again, and even though I'm not a cat person, I think this would look great done in black beads on a plain white canvas!

Oh my stars, Jams! Wow!

I know what you mean. I call our black and white Trixie - the Great White Pointer.

And I hear the Jaws music playing in my head when I see her hunting poor little Pyewacket.

I like how you process this picture. Very artistic. Yap, cats have been part of the halloween scare-a-thon.

Enjoy the weekend.

No matter Dark or Light, there's always some scary things or actions waiting to haunt us.

Nice portrait. Those eyes make the cat look intimidating.

He looks like he could take out anybody -- this would make a good "attack cat" poster.

Colin Campbell said...

Yikes! Scary but presented creatively.

I have read once that black cats can't be borrowed during Halloween from those places where strays are kept.

If looks could kill ;) Happy Weekend!

Granny said...

Now that's a cat I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley!
Happy Halloween!

Difficult for me to see anything scary in cats... but those eyes do look slightly sinister. Nice shot though!

He reminds me of my significant other's cat. That cat of his has a temper, too. Very vocal kitty.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Those eyes seem to be so full of aggression and malice! Incredible shot in black and white!

What a terrific photo! Love it. Perfect for the theme - but great for our scary theme too!

There is no "gray" area with Ted. Only black&white.
