...It had a fatal accident, a brick fell on it !
My book entitled, Looe in Cornwall a photographic tour, is on sale now.
It has friends. They will know. I hear them now.

@Ronnie 2¢: Let them come..... I have a can of 'Raid' !
"A brick fell on it" What, the one that was 12 feet away, the the corner, on the floor.....that brick???!!! Sorry, giggling to myself about your choice of words...great! Surprised that you had time to get your camera before this odd space time continuum quantum split happened in Chester!!

Ah beautiful. I love the shadows there.
(Although you could have held back the information about it's demise)

@ursulakatariina: You like them..? I can send you a box full if you want.
What a great and clever idea to share things and creatures living home Michael. We see without seeing. That's really brilliant. I wouldn't dare enter your garage (it comes at the right time, I have no car).
;-)))) Am I silly.

@Florence: I use the garage for the washing machine/dryer/freezer/tools/christmas tree/lawn mower/fitness weights.... but no car in there. My wife said I should put my bed in there....... what do you think Flo ?
a) Since how many years are you married Michael... ???
b) Or, is your wife a fan of 'do it yourself' ? In that case, and hopefully,
this second possibility is probably the most enjoyable. ;-)))

I must be becoming a Buddhist for some time because I reluctant to kill these critters in my garage ... However, in the house, no mercy, to each his territory !
The wall is white or is a fake ?

Great composition, love the shot.....I would have dropped that brick too :)

A fine close up with exellent detail that I always like in the "pet" shots. :-)
I really like the stark bacground.

6 Oct 2010 4:22pm
Great framing! This contrast between creature and background makes the shot like a drawing :)
6 Oct 2010 4:26pm
Love that slight texture to the background - what a great shot.
6 Oct 2010 4:33pm
@Nigel: Thnx Nigel
Accidents happen! nobody's fault:) Atleast you let her live on with this great portrait!
6 Oct 2010 5:27pm
Wow, you grow them big in your garage! Sorry to hear about that tragic accident. Maybe, you better fix those loose bricks. ;-)
6 Oct 2010 5:59pm
@Steve Rice: Or loosen a few more :0
Love the background...
6 Oct 2010 6:55pm
haha. o dear the circle of life via a brick!!
6 Oct 2010 7:06pm
@kate: That's how it goes.
I hope that you have buried it already. Awful spi... accident, great shot!
6 Oct 2010 7:55pm
Oh poor fellow... but it posed and cooperated so well with the photographer! Don't you think a brick would be a little too harsh? How about a slipper? Wonderful capture Mike... love the contrast and minimalist composition!:-)
7 Oct 2010 12:08am
The white background and shadows of the spider/legs = well seen and captured
7 Oct 2010 1:08am
I get there is a dirty spot now on your white wall :-0
Scary bug... but for my karma's sake... I avoid killing any living creature...
7 Oct 2010 2:13am
Poor soul! Did you say a prayer...over the brick!
Excellent take here ( a memory from the time when IT was alive)!
7 Oct 2010 10:33am
Well, in spite of the fatality he looks pretty much of one piece.
Are you the one with a garage full of spiders that I read about a while back?
This one is a beaut!! :-)
8 Oct 2010 3:37am
Superb photo and a lovely tégénaire.
11 Oct 2010 4:36pm
