You might heard about Portland photographer Carli Davidson‘s photo series “shaking dog” features close-up portraits of dogs in all of their drooling glory. And today, we would like to present you her new collection “shaking cat” where she captured each cat mid-shake in an explosion of fur, skin, and spit. It is worth mentioning that the most of the 61 cats appearing in Shake Cats are rescues. And the reason for Davidson to use those cats as her ‘actors’ is to encourage online adoption.
If you like this shaking series, you can get the book on amaozn. And a portion of Davidson’s advance from the book will support three Portland shelters who provided its subjects.
Sphynx Cat is a breed of cat known for its lack of a coat (fur), though it is not truly hairless. The skin should have the texture of chamois, as it has a fine layer of down. Whiskers may be present, either whole or broken, or may be totally absent. There are many people who are big fan of this breed and someone found they are quite disturbing by their alien looking, such as me. Without fluffy and fancy coats, this breed shows what a true cat is, no matter you like it or not. Photographer Alicia Rius is one of those who fascinated by it and take some stunning photos to explore the beauty of Sphynxes within their oddity. It is really impressive to look at them in such detailed way.
“Coffee Art” isn’t something new in Japan. Not matter it is 3D Cute Foamy Sculptures or 2D Anime Swirl Art, those Japanese artists are really good at playing with formy milk and create stunning latte art. Today, we will introduce you another set of amazing latte art “Latte Cat”, spotted by Twitter user @dongurinekobei. These extremely-detailed cat drawings showcase subtle changes in shading, glints in the felines’ eyes, and remarkably thin whiskers, which is definitely not something you can expect from your coffee. It is just so real that you don’t even want to destory it by sipping the coffee.
