"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

A Spider Above My Head.

I've had just enough time to...   shoot the spider above my head.

Taken during an early morning hike up Ampang Hill, Selangor, Malaysia.

I saw a spider on a web
Hanging high above my head
Looking at me with a hundred eyes
Does it think I’m a fly?

It spreads out its eight long legs
Readied itself for the perfect catch
Doesn’t it realize?
Its downfall is its appetite.


Look, he's crawling up my wall
Black and hairy, very small
Now he's up above my head
Hanging by a little thread

Boris the spider
Boris the spider

    I made this shot during one of my early morning hike up Ampang Hill, Malaysia. This is a wonderful place for a morning hike as there always a lot of shooting opportunities with a lot of insects, reptiles, birds and squirrels and luxuriant growths. And the air is so fresh. It is always interesting to compare the shots we made. I saw this gigantic spider hanging high over the water's edge and asked my buddy to stand there for me to make the shot to add depth to my shot. We liked how this shot turns out.
