Oberkochen, Germany, September 27, 2013

I just unwrapped the Carl Zeiss 35mm F/1.4, a heavy, metal piece of workmanship that has dimensions far from normal. I take a look out of the window and complain that I missed the light by 5 minutes as I wanted to wait until we were finished with dinner.

Shortly afterwards I open the fly screen nevertheless and step out on the terrace. A few light rays from sundown are still winning through the trees and paint the terrace in orange. The pictured spider can be found in the old brick-built grill we haven't used in years. For at least two years now the spiderweb extends over it, central and almost majestically. I often tried to shoot it in a nice way and never was satisfied.

This time both light and the technology seem to be in my favor. Even the spider seems to throw in a pose. Click.
