About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

It's an interesting and uniquely shaped pepper. But for me, it's not that aesthetically pleasing.

Mr. Fairbanks,

Good point. I hadn't considered that. I think that's why some artist like to not title their work, so that it is open to each viewer's interpretation. "Untitled" can be a good thing.

Mr. Fairbanks,

Ah, okay. That's good it wasn't me. Still a bummer for you about the spoiler in the caption. :) I hate spoilers, to the point that I don't watch movie trailers. I just go by the title and picture. :)

No worries. We all have our opinions. It's HOW we discuss them.

photo_rb,

There probably weren't many photos of peppers. No one was crazy enough to waste film on it. ;D Just messing.

The Wright brothers were ground breaking. This photo is not.

Old Cameras,

In the context of its time, there was George Hurrell. You can tell which I'd pick.

Hello mgblack74,

Yes. Exactly! As you said, "...an average or below average image by someone famous or popular all of a sudden elevates the image into the fine art stratosphere." That was my point. If you weren't a famous/well known photographer, the image wouldn't be held high up on a pedestal, nor would it have as many "likes", I'm guessing.

Mr. Fairbanks,

I apologize for the spoiler in revealing what the object was. I hate spoilers!
Seeing a better representation of this image on wikipedia, it does look more aesthetically pleasing with it's shape and tones. :)

I wasn't arguing about the importance of photography. I was just talking about the picture of a pepper, and how it relates to a famous person.

Cheers!

In the video, the greatest tragedy of this is from 1:52 - 1:55.

Utterly amazing. So much in life that a singular person doesn't know about. I don't know how people can say life's experience can be boring.

Wow! My god. What causes a formation like that?! The process involves lava?
EDIT: Okay, I read this in the accompanying article, finally. :)
" The geological phenomena of these rock columns of basalt being thrust up in ancient times from a violent volcano was just unbelievable, both beautiful and horrific at the same time."
