Kitchen corner Spider 1

Kitchen corner Spider 1

Spider (species unidentified, I’m a bird guy…) seen in the corner of the photographer’s kitchen. Taken in Albany, CA by a Nikkormat FT2 with a Micro-Nikkor 55mm ƒ3.5 AI lens (at ƒ32) on Kodak Portra 400NC. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010. Dust removal, gamma and color correction done in Paint Shop Fro Photo X2. Vivitar 16A flash used: hand-held to left of taking lens. This is about 1/3 life size on the film plane, (I don’t like crowding spiders of unknown species) and slightly below life size on my monitor.

Yes, this spider (he/she’s still around a month later…) does hang out on his/her web upside down!…
