Sunday Selfie with a type of dagger!

So, I set up the camera and I did a nice pose - you know, the butter-wouldn't-melt one - and pressed the button!


My question is how did it get all mushed up and tatty looking in between me doing the business and it appearing here?  I put my question to the editor/Staff/TAT/pollical person and she said she thought it looked a bit boring and so added a dag .... dagger .... dagger O'type effect in PicMonkey! Huh? How can anything to do with handsome tuxie mancats be boring? I think the woman is crazed, a menace, a danger to shipping! Also her obsession with photo editing is getting out of control! She needs help or an intervention or something! Anyway who is this Dag R. O'Type???? 

Despite suffering such indignity I am allowing my tatty pic to be entered into the Sunday Selfie blog hop hosted by our good friends Kitties Blue. Just click on the badge below.




Dagger O'Type (from the french daguerreotype) - a type of Irish daguerr dagger
pollical - something to do with politics? OR lots of hot guys called Cal :-)

    The lady knows the effect you're talking about in PicMonkey. She likes that vintage look.

  15. Nice photo, Austin! But what your human did wan't a Dagger O'type - it was a Dog Era Type. Why she was using dog effect, I don't know.

  16. That is a very handsome timer selfie Austin, even if you are a bit tatty around the edges.
    Jealous of me and Miss Katie? Good heavens, no! We are British, remember the stiff upper lip. As you said, I am also a perfect gentleman...usually.

  26. Uff!!! We feel your pain! Luckily, our Mom is way too lazy to edit pictures, but SOMEONE should help you here. Maybe you know some human who wants to give your Mom evening classes in photo editing??

  27. We think you look as handsome as effur, Austin. Trixie is swooning.
    But, as far as Daggers go, We are against them on Principle. If you watch the News, you no doubt understand why...

  28. Gosh I love the effect......like a super old photo of a very handsome mancat of days gone by. The main thing to remember is you look fabulous in the photo regardless of the editing effect your typist added!

    Hugs, Sammy

  30. Being Black and white dear Austin, mes thinks the Dagger O'Type accents your gloriousness.
    Are you sure Dagger O'Type is not a very large Irish Moggie? Mes thinks mes met one with that name at a pawty...but who knows, mes met so many man cats....
