I think the impact of this is lost on me because I think spiders are pretty cute.
All I see when I look at this is "HELLO SMALL HUMAN, YOU SEEM TO BE LOST IN THE WOODS. DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE?"

of all of your deviations, i think i like this one the best! the sheer vulnerability portrayed by the child at that moment, how he/she is unclothed and unprotected in anyway adds a sense of dread for whoever is looking at the photograph. The fact that the spider's body spans across his/her chest shows the amount of control the spider has at the moment. And the colorless sepia tone of the picture adds a sense of depth that wouldn't quite be there if it had been in full color as well as foreshadows the fate of the child. Although this is an accurate representation of arachnophobia, or really any phobia, in the sense that it shows where the phobia can begin, etc., there also lies a hidden, deeper meaning about the amount of control fear can have over your life and how vulnerable the human psyche is to fear and emotion. woooow! that was a REALLY long and detailed response, I usually don't do that! but i think your picture was worth it! it really was amazing! :)

I'm so glad that this is not real (I can tell by the shadows) *Shiver* The thought alone of a big spider sitting on a baby's belly makes me shiver and want to freak out, even when the spider is harmless (as long as it is not annoyed) and the baby would not be afraid or scared - BECAUSE THAT THING TICKLES!!!
