An Airy citadel: Bruges

"The points…on which the Spider begins her work are few…she fills the Air with a beautiful circuiting" Keats

As a child, I was terrified of spiders. Photographing them has helped with this, and even though I’ll probably never get to the point where I’d let a tarantula take a walk across my face, I can comfortably catch one with a glass and piece of card and liberate it in the back yard, rather than yelling for help.

This photo was taken on a bridge in Bruges, the spider silhouetted against a distant traffic light.
