Here’s a picture of Gus looking totally normal. That’s what’s wrong with it! In all the other shots, his eyes are glowing like a lantern, pupil, iris, all of it. So how did a straight on full shot somehow not reflect back any light?
This may involve those spirits that were proposed by the commenters earlier.
At least this time, I know how it came about. I was holding the camera awkwardly and managed to mask part of the flash or deflect it downward. It looks like a little spotlight on him. The faint sparkly effect of his agouti hairs on the face is a nice touch.
What could be cuter than a Persian kitty lounging outside on a summer evening? Well, not this picture!
It reminds me of a scene in a teen slasher flick just moments before the guy with the claw arm and/or hockey mask slays her in an ironic fashion, ending with a memorable quip as a warning to the nice girl who survives to the end of the movie…
Well at least the end of the first movie out of the 19 planned sequels.
In reality, Calpurnia was just moving from one relaxed pose to another. No chain saws were involved, honestly.
