TW's Friday Foto Fiasco

TW's Friday Foto Fiasco
Picked by the Trout Towne Tabbies
From October 2008

Kitties, you outdid yourselves this week! TW is ready to crawl under a rock. You've exposed her lack of fotographic skills. The original title of this post was The Great American Screwup. Before the end of today's post, you'll be wondering if she had ever picked up a camera before. I mean, it shouldn't be hard to take fotographs with a point and shoot camera or at least I wouldn't think so. This will prove once and for all that your wish is our command. I have the stones to show every number that you guys yell at me regardless of how bad it reflects on TW.

This somewhat blurry foto is the cream of the crop today. I was having an easy like Sunday on the chair next to Pop and wide awake when TW brought the flashy box around sans flashy. I guess she thought she was doing me a favor. I quickly dropped my head and pretended to fall asleep. Look at how nice and neat the chair cushions were! Oh wait, forget that and look at The Cat.

You might be axing yourself "what the hell is this mess" and why is it on a semi-professional blog anyway? TW certainly axed herself the first question when she looked at the thumbnail. The answer to the second question: cos you requested it. That is not a ghost you see. The first set of lasers is me inside a case of bottled water. I used to like to lay in the boxes—before they stopped using boxes—even if there was still bottles in it. If I didn't know better, I'd say she took the pic by candle light or using a flashlight. It took three fotos before she turned the freaking light on.

This begs the question where the hell-o kitty did the words come from if these fotos are unedited. TW screwed up bigly. Sometimes she'll pull stills from my videos to use on blog posts or whatever. We have a separate folder for video stills but somehow—*looks at TW*—a group of stills made it into the wrong folder. The second mistake was she pulled the still after she put the text in the video rather than using the raw video. She ruined what could have been a classic foto. As you can tell, I was on the Tree of Pain inflicting said pain on TW. Here's the video the still came from. Seriously, I don't know why I put up with her incontinence.

What a fiasco this Foto Frenzy was! I feel like this post should have police tape around it warning people to proceed with caution. MOL! I promise tomorrow's art will make up for this. Hello … is anyone still here?

The Menagerie Mom said...

CK, you made our day with these photos! We certainly have our fair share of bloopers at our disposal, but you never fail to make yours look so especially stunning. You use props like lovely chair cushions, turn on your laser beams, and know when to flash those fangs. Such talent!

*facepaw* How in the world have humans survived this long? How? If these photos don't prove their incompetence, we don't know what would. Best bloopers ever!

I don't think I've ever seen a video of you, CK. And you're even more stunning when in motion!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

You look so fierce in the last photo, CK! I have missed you. My mum hardly turns the computer on lately, but I told her I had to come and see you.

We thought they were darn good CK, especially 1935!

The Tabbies of Trout Towne pick a lot of good ones. I also like the one of you in the water box. said...

Hey we all have to put up with some incontinence now and then! he he

The Island Cats said...

Well, CK. Our mom is a lousy photo taker too. She blames it on the camera. Of course.

meowmeowmans said...

We're glad we chose that number, CK, because that's a really, really interesting photo! :) And 1935 is also great (as is the video, in which we especially loved how you licked your chops after putting the bitey on TW)! :)
