Today we feature images by Anthony Lusardi whose work last appeared here in fall 2021.

The two hands are of my nieces, Aria and Scarlett. The stump is a section of a maple tree that used to grow in my backyard and is now used as a base to chop firewood. Through the ax marks, one can still see the tree rings, adding up to about 40 years.

Long back when I was a kid, I liked finding and watching spiders in their webs, along with other bugs. Nowadays with my iPhone 5, I like to take pics and stylize them. This little guy was hanging under my gazebo and I made the pic in mono. I often like to take away color to enhance the subject’s outlines and the contrast of dark and light.
