A Rising Star, A Confused Cat, A Ghost City: The Top 10 Photos of the Week

We here at the Houston Press have long believed that some of the best photographers in the world live right here in Houston. Between the slideshows and blogs we publish and the images you share with us in our Flickr Pool, we see tons of amazing photos every week, and this is our chance to celebrate our favorites.

This week's photos include a rising star in Texas politics, a very confused cat, and one hell of an optical illusion.
