spider front stairs 1

spider front stairs 1

A spider, species unknown, sits in its orb-type web on my front stairs in Albany, CA. (in the railings…) Taken by a Nikkormat FT2 with a 55mm ƒ3.5 Micro-Nikor AI lens on Kodak Portra 400VC. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010. Cropped heavily to 4×5 aspect ratio.

This individual appears to be missing a leg – at least, I only count seven legs… Yes, the shot is grainy and somewhat dusty… (on this shot, I couldn’t distinguish dust on the negative from dust/dirt in the web) On my 17" CRT screen (1152×864 resolution) this shot is at least twice life size – possibly 3x…
