Bob

By ChiliMan
Bobís had one too many espressos.

Bob is a cat who lives in the unit next door to my brotherís place. ĎLivesí is stretching it Ďcos Bob spends more time in other units than her own. This was taken in my brotherís living room this New Yearís Day when we went over there for teatime.

And no, it wasnít a typo when I wrote Ďherí. Hey, donít look at me, I didnít name her!

I decided to put the BW up first Ďcos (a) I prefer that one, and (b) V2 doesnít give you the true colour of her eyes Ė which are actually an amazing green.

V3: Her true eye colour. This hasnít been fiddled with. Thatís really how her eyes look. Nice green, huh? Smile


Andrew

PS That has to be the easiest titling I have ever done for an image.

I think I go for V3 too - Bob needs colour, she sounds a colourful character.
Remember that we do not own cats, they own us. And all our neighbours as well...
Loved your comment on Bill's upload.

Roberta to give her her full name certainly is a beautiful pussycat Andrew, her eyes are amazing. As much as i love the b&w versions nothing beats glorious colour. I reckon these images would be ripe for some colour popping to highlight her stunning eyes. If you've any more images of her i'd definitely give that a go sometimeSmile Being an Edmund i'm glad you included the classic Blackadder clip.

She's the spitting image of our Tilly, but she is willing to pose which Tilly definitely isn't, I hope someday to get some shots of her which might be close to being half as good as these Andrew. As to your shots and conversions, much as I like V1, I have to go with the colour versions!
