Portrait of a Pepper

By now, you get the pattern...I love photography and I love portraits. That said, I love Edward Weston. Probably most famous for his 'portraits' of various inanimate objects, it his photograph of a pepper, in all its magnificence, that is his most recognized. I'm not sure when a vegetable has looked so gorgeous. I especially like when it is juxtaposed against his famous nude. The similarities between the two subjects are so startling through his eye that I feel equally connected to human as I do to vegetable.
