Overhead Projections - Part Five

© Larry Torno

When I go out looking for photo opportunities, it's always with an open mind and the anticipation of what I might find.
     In the case of Spider, it started with a sign for a park I'd never heard of. The directions lead through a winding subdivision with plenty of left and right turns that eventually deposit you into a nondescript parking lot. Off to the side was an overgrown ball field with a half-spherical batting cage. That was enough of an impression to get me out of the car and onto the grass to examine the architecture more closely.
     A lone cloud in the sky caught my eye and I waited for it to drift into the composition. It's a simple design with a pleasant balance of objects; just the kind of photo I like to create.


  1. I love it, without my glasses it reminds me of a giants spiders legs and apparently you think so too! Very cool! How do you get the sky to behave so well?

  2. The spider is about to be grabbed by the soaring hawk-like cloud.
