There is one of the photos of the orb webs I took, after gently spraying them with water to simulate dew drops. One advantage of my digital camera is that it saves photos at a very large size… like 72 by 56 inches, or something like that. So I can crop a photo way down, and still have an image at 72 DPI and 9 inches wide (or 8 inches tall) which are as big as I need for the blog. This is also how I got all those awesome bird pictures I took at my mom’s house in the Bay Area. Just crop around the bird and throw away all those extra inches of pixels. So, here is what I zoomed in to on this photo…
I suppose I could make lots of copies of each photo, and crop each one to a different part, but then we would never be done with this, so the challenge was to find an interesting part, and stick with it.
The thing is… (hello thing, where have you been hiding?)… that even the cropped versions end up being more than 9 inches, so I could go closer.
Although, really, in Photoshop, I can resize the images anyway. Maybe in the next post I will try zooming in on one water drop.
But I took most of these when the sky was still full of fog, so it might be better to see if I can find any where the sun is hitting the drops.
So many choices!
Anyhoo… I will keep on doing this, and I hope you enjoy the results more than the spiders enjoyed me spraying their webs.
