Theme Day - Big

Another month has gone by and another one begins today. Here in CDPB world the first of the month is Theme Day and the theme for September is 'Big'. I really didn't have a clue what to post this month but luckily Banksy helped me out! This big (fake) spider in a gobstopper machine was one of the exhibits at the Bansky Exhibition in Bristol. As you probably remember we went there last month and waited in a big queue (another big!) to see the illusive artists work. Well worth the wait!

You really are trying to creep us out. I could use those gobstoppers on quite a few people.

Ha ha...this is a creepy BIG! Yucks..I am scared of creepy crawlies! What more, such a BIG one you have here! Makes the hair on my arms stand!

Big and scary... well not really scary. It is so realistic - I have an old 'skin' from a taratula that a guy at work some 25 years ago gave me after the spider was done with it. Terrific photo - love all the bright colors.

Well I had to read your commentary to understand that this was a fake. It worked wonders for me and I was asking myself how the hell it got there.
Naïve? Yes but not really scared of creepy crawlies. I probably would have tried to take a picture rather than run away.

I'm loving the different ways people have interpreted today's theme - now I'd never have thought of a BIG spider but good for you and good for Banksy. So works on those coloured balls.

Hilda said...

It looks so real! I want one to freak out my friends!

Jim K said...

It looks real to me, I need something to swat it with.

Mo said...

Creepy. I'm terrified of spiders. Fortunately I was able to read on to see it's not real. Still spooks me though. Brilliant picture

Big, ugly, and scary. You win.

Ok, that is beyond creepy and I'm sorry it looks very very real to me.

That got a big "eeeeuuuu" out of me as soon as I saw it!

JM said...

This probably is the most eye-catching photo of the day! Super cool!

Ineke said...

Seriously, even fake this spider gives me the creeps. What a catch for todays theme!
