anamorphic cat

I don't feel up to tackling the Drafts backlog right now, so here's another batch of cat photos instead. This time taken with the latest toy from Goodwill, an Optivision XW 5000 anamorphic lens. I understand these are typically used for film & video work, for doing widescreen stuff on normal-width film. One anamorphic lens to squeeze the wide stuff onto the film, another anamorphic lens on the projector to reverse the process. So that's the intended purpose, but I just got it to do funko-groovish special effects using actual optics, rather than GIMP/Photoshop. It sounded like fun, and it was cheap, so hey.

As an added, extra, ultra-bonus, a couple of non-anamorphic photos.
