In contrary to popular belief, I do not have a glamorous job or doing anything that anyone would want to dream of doing. Today, I went down into an underground drain system, for engineering inspection. While we were doing the routine check and observation on the structural integrity, and looking high and low for defects or fractures, I saw something rather attractive waiting for me down there.
My only regret? Not having my camera and macro lens with me.
Not giving up, I whipped out my lousy HTC phone's 5MP camera, and snapped away.
Was the image good? Not really, it was lit by two equally bad torchlights that provided completely different colour temperatures, and the light was too concentrated and casted heavy shadows everywhere. At 5MP image, I had to crop further and losing the pixels meaning I have less data to work with.
But who cares, if the image was bad, I can always blame the phone camera. Aaaahhhh sweet excuses.
There were MANY spiders crawling all over the inside of the underground drain. I only took this one photograph. Hey, I was there for work, remember? Lets get back to the inspection.... (but my mind was thinking if I could get any closer to the spider for more magnification).
