It looks like you ran across a Cross Spider aka European garden spider

That is a great spider Donna. If you get behind and above the spider with the camera, there is less chance of it attacking, as I don't think it would run backward at you, or jump straight up in the air, flip around and latch on.:D

Playing dead is a good strategy for spiders. I have knocked spiders off of me, as a kid, and when they curled up, I thought I really hurt or killed them, and felt badly. I wondered why they would disappear when I passed by the spot again.
