There is no shortage of your typical cat photo online, but photographer Arne Svenson‘s series Strays isn’t exactly typical.

This is awesome: someone over at the Chicago Tribune made a hilarious mistake this morning, accidentally publishing a placeholder photograph of a random cat on the newspaper website’s front page.

The Tribune is the 8th largest newspaper in the United States by circulation, and its website is one of the top 500 websites in the United States by traffic.

We’ve written a couple of times in the past on how you can achieve drastically different portrait looks by choosing different lens focal lengths and subject distances. Basically, your choice of glass can make a huge impact on what your subject’s face looks like… and how much they appear to weigh.

This 3-megapixel “Felyne” camera is designed to look like a character from the video game franchise Monster Hunter, and goes on sale later this month in Japan for about $90. Something tells me we’ll be seeing a lot more of this kind of thing if 3D cameras start becoming popular.
