Challenge has finished
Your assignment: Take a photo of something you dislike, and try to see it in a different way. Or try something entirely new. Some examples: If you're a nature photog who doesn't do people photography, take a portrait. If you don't like cats, photograph one. Hate spiders? Well...if it's a phobia talk with your doctor before attempting to use them as a subject, and if they're poisonous steer clear, otherwise give it a try. ;) You get the idea. I hope.

This is my second submission and accompanies my other submission 'I see you with all my eyes'. As per previous entry - I do not like spiders. I borrowed a friend's macro lens especially for this shot. Camera was positioned underneath spider, pointing up at minimum focus distance (40cm) ... I also made sure to fire some test shots of external flash to make sure the spider wouldn't freak out.
