Mousetrap by Elisa Noguera Lopez, a Spanish photographer based in London, United Kingdom, is a series of images inspired by the children's Mousetrap Rhyme by Eduard Morike, hence its name. It interprets the words, which are both innocent and slightly morbid, as a series of abstract images. For instance, "boldly pay us a visit tonight / when the moon shines bright!" is captured as a black backdrop with a dark orb that could easily be taken as an eclipsed moon.

Of course, a cat makes an appearance in Mousetrap by Elisa Noguera Lopez. Although sleeping, there is an inherent sense of danger that will keep viewers on the edge of their seat. Overall, the imagery is rich with color and patterns.
