[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
the fable of arachne is a late addition to greek mythology, recorded in ovid's metamorphoses. arachne's name simply means "spider" and was a fine weaver in lydia who began claiming that her skill was greater than athena's, the goddess of weaving.

athena was angered, but gave arachne a chance to redeem herself. assuming the form of an old woman, she warned arachne not to offend the gods. arachne scoffed and wished for a weaving contest, so she could prove her skill. athena dropped her disguise and the contest began.

athena wove the scene of her victory over poseidon that inspired the people of athens to name their city for her. arachne's tapestry featured Zeus: zeus being unfaithful with leda, zeus being unfaithful with Europa, zeus being unfaithful with danae.

even athena admitted that arachne's work was flawless, but was outraged at arachne's disrespectful choice of subjects. finally losing her temper, athena destroyed her tapestry and loom, and struck arachne on the head. arachne realized her folly and was crushed with shame. she ran off and hanged herself.

athena took pity on arachne. sprinkling her with the juices of aconite, athena loosened the rope, which became a cobweb, while arachne herself was changed into a spider.

after ceslou's son's party, we just passed by and visited the newly-constructed section of burjuman center. lighting was poor and i didn't brought my tripod at that time (and i guess it's prohibited to take shots there using one) that caused camera shake.

Great shot, love the detail you capturd and the use of space.


mukhang nag-malling ka. tamang homesick. galing nito ganda ng lighting pero hindi ba medyo blurry. pero well explained naman sa notes. galing mo talaga. "pwede ka na talaga

your the one!

The shake is very minimal, considering the length of the exposure!! The trick to this shot is in the POV and you've done a good job of making the most of the architecture, so that the eyes follow into its far reaches.
Good work fella, thanks for sharing and enriching.
