CAT2 (2)‘Nothing to Scratch Here’

You’ll have to bear with me on this one. It’s a bit mad.

I had a ‘What if?’ moment. I was thinking that most photos I take are of things either ‘straight ahead’ of me or upwards. I never take shots at ground level – like, say a passionate artist type cat with a camera would. That sort of cat with a camera would be pretty much at ground level doing his/her thing. That means – to me in ‘What if?’ mode at least – that there must be a whole new world of pics to take ‘straight ahead’ at ground level.

Ideally, I would have preferred to take the ‘Cat With a Camera’ pics outside but right now it’s either pouring with rain everyday or frosty and freezing. That meant mainly indoors had to be the location, plus I had to think like a cat thinks – not easy when you don’t know how.

I hadn’t considered giving the mythical cat a name until someone suggested I should. I was offered ‘Cat Ray’ or ‘Robert Cata’ by someone much older than me, but settled for ‘Hetfield’. Above and below is ‘Hetfield’s’ first go at this new art form/sub-genre (maybe I’m pushing my luck here), ‘CAT ART’. I hope you enjoy.

And to finish, not one of my songs this time but a vintage number called, ‘Cool For Cats’ from Squeeze.

Below the link to my new album on Bandcamp that’s helped keep me at No. 1 on the ReverbNation UK Chart;

  1. Hetfield did a fine job on his first go at catography. My cat, Spunk, is an accomplished catographer using medium format and 4X5 film cameras. Although I have to process his film and print his photos, since he doesn’t have opposable thumbs.

      1. Spunk is old school. It doesn’t matter what Hetfield uses to create Cat Art, as long as he’s happy with the results, that’s all that matters.

    1. Thanks. Try going into the blog via the ‘visit’ tag on the Reader – that should enable any music links to work. If not, it will be as you said. Thanks again ~ George


  2. I loved Hetfield’s point of view…great pictures and concept. Thanks for sharing the Squeeze track. I had not heard them before. And, listening to Goodnight Cleopatra sold me on your album!

  3. Hetfield seems to have a talent for composition and about that bat….. Hetfield must have shown great self control to not disturb the bat’s “sleep”. I look forward to more of Hetfield’s photography.

  4. Ha! Hetfield’s got a passion for French, I see. x Perfect name. He’s a traveling bard with a score to settle. Puss’n’Boots stole his glory, and he ain’t takin’ that shit lyin’ down…only it’s raining. He’ll have to wait until that’s done. Just a guitar player without a scratching post and a mute bat for company…

    1. All OK. I’ve confirmed I’m following. I’ve not had any trouble with WP but loads of other people tell me they have. Best of luck ~ George
