I just saw this, following the Portrait without Children thread. I love it almost as much as the Morning one! And Art's comment almost had me rolling on the floor. I'm trying to come up with a way to do something similar sometime.

Oh...you and I have the same job! The only difference is my cat is TWICE as fat as yours...;-)

This is SUCH a SCREAM!!!! LOL!!! Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2008 07:15:28 AM
I am really quite surprised this did not finish higher. I love the humor in the facial expression, the strong contrast used, the choice of objects to be held (the cat is what seals it for me). Great work again..one of my favorites for the top spot.

08/18/2008 05:42:40 AM
Oreck huh?
Left out one important part - your curlers!
I knew we'd be neck & neck based on the thread, but thought I'd be on the other side of you.
Next time you can be on top. (did I actually say that?)

BRILLIANT..... Shame it did not get on the FRONT PAGE were it belongs.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2008 01:57:01 AM
You left out a few steps:
1) Pick up cat.
2) Bend over to pick up vacuum, letting cat escape
3) Try to pick up cat while holding vacuum, lose slipper
4) Hold tightly onto cat and vacuum, slide foot gently into slipper and shuffle to the door.

Congrats on the high score! :)

A great composition, the composition is excellent and the black borders on side really work well to generate a lot of interest on the subject 9

"Good morning, Ma'am, if I could just have a moment of your time to tell you about the magical wonder of our cleaning products..."

...but I can see you are getting ready to vacuum the cat, so I'll come back later. :)

I'm not sure if it's the pose, the clothes, the co-stars, or the processing, but you've captured it perfectly!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2008 10:32:50 PM
LOL! I love the darkness and the slightly crooked crop, and the cat is just perfect, not to mention the excellent model! Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2008 09:16:35 PM
This reminds me of a certain "Morning" shot I saw a while back. A really honest and lighthearted look into real life. I hope this one does at least as well in this challenge as that one did.

Hi Judy with a 'Y' - I love it. Simply smashing darling! Can I give you a hand with all that stuff? No, well, let me load you down with a 10 if you've got room somewhere.

08/11/2008 02:29:35 AM
Love this shot!! I wish you didnt have the two black sides though. 9

AWESOME and love the way you have photographed yourself like this........ 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2008 01:11:50 AM
I want a little more detail in all that starkness. On my screen, for example, your head seems to end at your hairline, with your hair totally gone in the black.
08/11/2008 01:04:14 AM
Oops, saw this on your Flickr page earlier this evening. Normally I would skip a vote on such a shot, but as a self portrait, it's not anonymous anyway. (Many of the entries in this challenge will be far from anonymous!)

A really successful illustration of an idea. Not a "wow" shot, but then, it was not meant to be one. I'm weary of housework just from looking at this! My only quibble is the noticeable skew. Good job.

Jutilda? either way, great shot
