Offset Catman

Yesterday I published a weird photo for the Weekly Challenge. A few people thought that I should write the book to match the cover. That would never happen, even though I occasionally write something a little dark, this would be far too macabre for me.

I took the photo back in August, wandering the streets of Sidmouth during Folk week. There is always something interesting to see there, but I never thought I’d use the image, taken with my phone.

The guy in the picture was having fun rolling around the path, apparently sober and wearing a cat mask, as you do. I remember his girlfriend being ever so slightly embarrassed by his antics, but his friend was encouraging him to play.

Here is the original photo, some of you wanted to know how I created it, it was more luck than judgement.

I edited it in Photoshop, using ‘offset’ and changed it to black and white with infrared.

Here he is again really getting into a cat pose.

  1. What courage someone has to have to do things like he’s doing.
    I can see now why the image was very odd. But, going back to the one you posted on the challenge I can see the figure of the man. You did a fabulous job camouflaging him from the original. ☺️
    Happy weekend !!!!

I would love to hear from you . . .
