The Cat Scream

The following image has been provided to me through various indirect, circuitous, and secret Cat Channels, so I apologize that I cannot identify the original photographer, but I could not pass up the opportunity to show this amazing illustration:

If I ever have time for a new hobby, a very enticing possibility involves photographing the flanks of tabby cats.

And: Happy eenth Birthday to my amazing daughter!

If you hadn't said that the left image is cat fur I would have assumed that it's a TEM image of a polymer film or something.

Clearly, I am too into science.

It is amazing what a little Photoshop can do.

Wow, cool Photoshop!

The Scream is one of my favorite paintings - pretty much explains my whole career (as a secondary teacher, grad student and now, postdoc).

I am a professional photographer, and this "screams" Photoshop (pun intended).

If it were Photoshop I think it'd be much 'better' or at least more obvious. I stared at the image for 10 or 20 seconds before I realized what the point was.

Happy birthday to your daughter!

So that's where Munch got his idea.

Very interesting! I don't think it's Photoshop, either.
