This was a night shot using a flash. I focused using a spot, and then turned off the light to shoot. I loved how the water created little colored balls, which highlighted their connection. My first thought was a rainbow effect, but then it dawned on me that this looked like a solar system--and the spider was the represention of a sun. Or it could be he's the gatekeeper to a black-hole. Or it could be that all those years of drug use are finally catching-up to me.
