…but please, not with me!
I’m quite terrifed of spiders… but like fire, and also sharks, there is also the curiosity. ;) Happy weekend to all!

Is that a really big spider or a really tiny chair? No matter – it’s a wonderful image.

Yikes! BUTr, what a FANTASTIC furniture ad this would be (a la ‘Litle Miss Muffet’)! Very clever! :-)

Thanks Tracy! The little chair is a table setting piece… you know, the kind that holds a card with someone’s name on it. I got it from a wedding and thought it looked better with a spider :)

This looks absolutely REAL! Love it! How did you do this? I swear that spider had to pose for you, Amber.

hehe… Thank you Leslie!!! Well… when I stumble across something cool, like this spider for instance, I take several shots and file them away as stock images for when I get a burst of inspiration. Last night I had a thought that this chair would be neat with a spder and I remembered I had a file full of this spider in a few different poses. A little tweaking of the angles, and some blending in Photoshop, and there you have it!

I LOVE this picture…How on earth did you do this? Very original!

Oh thank you Debby. Well… it’s just a bit a Photoshopping really. I shot the mini chair on my desk on black posterboard and then manipulated an image of a spider I photograpped previously into the scene :).

Great image with the spider and the chair. But I’m with you. That spider may take a seat, but not with me either.

S’funny, but when you first aired a shot of this freaky little beast, I thought “man you have some scary looking spiders over there”, but I’ve done some searching to find out more about this one in particular, and it turns out it’s a Wasp Spider (I think), and do you know where it’s from !!. Well do ya ??. Go on, have a guess. ;) Yup, it would be Europe, and we have them here in the UK too apparently. Although I’ve never seen one, as they’re so tiny. lol. Oh, and apparently they bite. ;)
All that aside though, I do love what you’ve created here A. Quite the creepy fantasy image. Very clever and very nice indeed. :)

Well of COURSE! I mean, don’t ALL the creepy stuff come from Europe? I mean, YOU’RE there! haha ;) These spiders are soooo not tiny. No no no no… this picture is hardly an exxageration at all. eeeeeek…. hehe thanks B!

Very cool… in a creepy sort of way. Love how the colors of the spider and the chair match so well.

Thank you Michaela! That was exactly what made me think of this spider. I shot the chair and background first and remembered this spider had the same colors. Thanks for noticing :)

This is fabulously creepy and a wee bit surreal. I detest spiders. More than snakes or anything else creaturely. That aside this is a great piece of work Amber! :)

Thanks Gina! Yeah, I’m with you… I don’t *mind* spiders outside, if they stay away from me… but… they’d better not be in my house, car, or anywhere else near me or ELSE. eeeek…

Awesome!! I love this shot. I love the look of spiders (not necessarily fearful of them, though I can’t say I’d relish meeting this one in person). This is such a beautiful and imaginative shot. Same spider as in the self-portrait from a while back?

You have such a good eye, and memory! Yes, it IS the same spider I posed with last year, although a different image. I took several shots of this spider and picked a shot I could manipulate better with the chair :) Thank you Mike!
