Milkweed and Spiders


I wanted to capture the essence of Milkweed after a long search through PhotoStudio I came to the simple gray-scale filter that created this almost celestial being.

Coming out on a friends porch late at night we came upon a big spider. I put on the flash and pointed at where it might be. It was too dark to see on my phone’s screen. I brightened the web with Phototoaster. Used PhotoStudio of get the reverse image.

  1. Really neat pictures. I haven’t seen any Milkweed in years. Know there is some around though. Seemed to be a lot more of it when we were kids.
