Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

dsc_2686-e_wThis weeks topic for photographers over at The Daily Post is “Twist”.

Although twisted has the meaning similar to “mixed up” or “tangled” for me, Krista was asking for something, that turned surprisingly to  something unexpected.

So, I want to tell you a little story, happened to me a few years ago. I was out for taking photographs from blooming lilac. I already took some photos, when I noticed fine lines in the photos on the camera display. I went home, afraid of my camera or the used lens were broken. I was afraid, the lines were small cracks in the class or at least scratches.

But, when I watched the photos on my computer screen at 100% I was very relieved. Look yourself why:

The photo above was taken after I discovered the origin of the fine lines. To be able to see the fine spider web a bit better, I sprayed a bit of water on the web. Did you notice how tiny the spider is? Compare it to the small lilac blossoms.

Take care!

    1. Thanks, Erwin.
      There isn’t any without the water. The other photo was only the lilac, but without the spider. Only a few spider silks were in front of the blossoms. And I deleted all of them. When I came back, searching for the spiderweb I found the green spider in her web and sprayed the water on the web to photograph it. And the result is in the post 🙂

  1. Amazing shot! Sometimes such beautiful unexpected things happen, and happen for good. Your story proves that.
    Do visit my ‘Twist’ also and let me know your thoughts on it.
