Photo Hunt - Original





The theme for this week's is original. This one had me stumped so I thought why not publish a photo where I haven't done any retoucing. I don't usually do a lot of work on my photos except to crop and play around with brightness and contrast levels, but this one of a sleeping Mimi is as taken except to compress the image.

I agree this weeks theme was difficult. I love your choice. How can they sleep like that?

Katney said...

Perfect!

And doesn't each kitty choose an original place or position for his nap?

Carver said...

Good idea and that is an original Mimi. All I can think of is, "my what big teeth you have". I don't think Mimi could fool Little Red Riding hood even in Grandma's dress.

Chris said...

Mimi is my kind of cat!! Love your pictures, retouched or not.

PowersTwinB said...

LOL! This is very original! And in time for a Halloween header for your site! Your kitty is too cute! My photo is up early, please come and visit

pat said...

Love it - such an artistic shot!

Happy Weekend.

BlurMommy said...

Mimi is cute!! Happy weekend!

Sue said...

What a cool looking shot! Happy photo hunting!

Liz said...

She looks sound asleep and totally relaxed. It is original to get a cat that flopped; they usually have half an eye open.

david mcmahon said...

Nice work, mate. Like they say, let sleeping dogs, er cats, lie!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks every one!

lissa said...

Never saw a cat slept like that.

ipanema said...

an original one indeed! cute original take on the theme!

thanks for the visit. :)

Gledwood said...

What an entertainingly vampiric cat!

Can I ask something? When abouts approximately were you born?

Because in your profile it says:
Astrological Sign: Widder

And I'm wondering what on earth that means...

It's all down to the fact that I got my blog to speak German once many moons ago and it's now half stuck in that setting...

... don't ask why I've no idea either...

Dorid said...

nicely done. It WAS a difficult theme, but it's been a lot of fun because everyone has a different take on it.

That shot is great! It doesn't need any retouching!

Heart of Rachel said...

Wilson said...

Andrée said...

She has snaggle-teeth like my Zorro! I would love to see how you interpret this photo later after you work on it. I am just beginning to do those things and can see a couple possibilities.

jmb said...

Dogs sleep upside down like this, but I didn't realize cats did it too. But then I've never had a cat. Good photo and idea for the theme.

Nap Warden said...

I love this picture! My Smokey sleeps like this all the time!

Che-Cheh said...

Hahaha cute pose by your kitty. The teeth!

**"Liza"** said...

Mama Bear June said...

Wow, that cracked me up! Great photo! :-D

Paulie said...

It's late at night here and you should have heard me laughing when it down loaded. That's quick thinking about each photo being an original if you don't retouch it!

Come and see mine.

A. said...

Great idea, and a lovely shot!

Thanks for your visit :)

Sabine said...

Cat's photos are always a welcome choice, no matter the subject!! She's cute - and original too, after all. There's only one of her, right? ;)
Happy weekend!

Bonggamom said...
