Spider

Excitingly, a late Christmas present arrived this afternoon from overseas. A set of Holga lenses for my Olympus PEN from my son. Had to start shooting immediately and this shot of our Oriental cat, Spider, is straight out of the camera.
Excellent stare and ears.

January 4th, 2012  
Oooh, Spider looks very unimpressed! I like the effect though. Very cool. Feels a little surreal, a little alien-ish.
January 4th, 2012  
Wow. Spider is one diabolical-looking cat! Great portrait of him!

Very intense Spider is, I would not want to run into him in the dark. Great capture Peter!

Thankyou for all the wonderful comments. Spider is indeed diabolical and runs the house. Her favourite place is sitting on a bar stool talking to you while you cook. She has a penchant for bacon, ham and tasty cheese, thus the look. She is always ready for breakfast. Orientals were originally bred by crossing Siamese and Abyssinians: are considered to be extreme cats.

wow, I saw these on eBay after you mentioned them, cool, do they vignette every time? Do you see the expected results or is it a matter of seeing how they turn out? Super!
January 6th, 2012  
@chewyteeth You see before you shoot.BTW have won a Yashica A on eBay for $50 in excellent condition
January 6th, 2012

January 6th, 2012  
Spider is so the poser. Love the shot.
January 8th, 2012  
Fab shot! I couldn't figure out how the heck I missed this pic, but when I looked at the date I realized I was pretty hit and miss for a couple of days when I was sick(er) with my cold...
January 8th, 2012
