It's not common to find a big spider in your home's floor, ready to pose for the camera in all detail. Those who can, enjoy it... :P

Photographic tip: spiders don't react to the flash nor to a finger resting 10cm from them (at least this one didn't, I'm not responsible if somebody repeats the test...)

"The girl distractedly dropped a hand and fitted an inexpressive golden mask to her face. Then she took a gold spider from her pocket and let it fall while the captain was still talking. The spider climbed docilely to the girl's knee, who was looking unexpressively at it trough the holes in the mask."
The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury

Laguna Negra

Deep and dark, locked between mountains, Laguna Negra it's a place of peace and tranquillity. When the last patches of snow stand out over the black rock and are reflected in the cold waters at the end of the winter, nothing can be wrong with the world.

And in such calmness there are animals that aren't afraid of the camera, as long as they can get some bread's crumbs...

"The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter."

To the memory of Santiago Delgrosso, my grandfather.
