Thanks Nevil. Yes I remember
It also raises questions for me on what is art. I can put on my wall as "my" art work. The original cobweb is frowned upon and has since been cleaned up. May be I should place as print somewhere and see some cobweb grow on this and then display it . That will deepen the question ( for all this I need permission . I have applied :) )

I very like the format and how you have made the composition.

The question, what art is, is difficult to define. But interesting. How our way to see on art has changed during the centuries. Go back in the history and art was something made of someone with big skills. For example: handcraft, a painted portrait of an important person or wall paintings in the church. Modern art has been gliding towards to be an Idea of something instead of to be an object (which sometimes also can be rather provocing, for example Duchamp's fontain). As an artist, you can make an image of a spider's web and show it to me. You may let me discover how beautiful a the web can be! And probably that is also art, when you make me see the spider's net in a new way, which I had not or could not do before.

But here comes the question, who is the real artist: The photograph or the spider? :-)
