Animate-Inanimate (II)

Night version of a similar scene you saw two days ago. Because I had no tripod with me I increased the ISO and used 1/5 second of exposure, it was safe enough for me to take the photo handheld without having a blurry result considering that my lens doesn't have vibration reduction.
The spider in this photo is a sculpture by the artist Louise Bourgeois, "She is best known for her 'Cells', 'Spiders' and various drawings, books and sculptures. Her works are sometimes abstract and she speaks of them in symbolic terms, and the main focus is "relationships" - considering an entity in relation to its surroundings." (Wikipedia)

In the previous photo of this series I replied to a comment by dj.tigersprout asking him if he has photos of the giant spider they have in San Francisco, my interest is to see the relationship of these sculptures to different surroundings, in that sense I invite all of you who have seen similar sculptures near your area to take photos and post them on June 8th, 2008, and let me know to include a link to your photo that day. Seems like a mini theme here, so get out, have fun and hunt those spiders (I understand the deadline is very close, if you can't post the photo that day, post it later and let me know, spread the word).
