Seen while cycling to work through the fog. The spider has finished its work for the day.

This image poses questions: Does the spider start from the outside or from the centre? Sure, she has to start where she can fix her web. And what is the relationship between hard, brutal, excluding barbed wire (some peopel even collect this stuff, and in Texas there’s a Devil’s Rope Museum) and soft but strong, brutal, insect-catching cobweb? Does the beauty of the water beads and the natural structure somehow redeem our somber thoughts?

Or should we just wonder in silence
