Hailing Edward Weston by farmreporter

Hailing Edward Weston

This week's get pushed challenge was to draw inspiration from the work of photographer Edward Weston - the early American photographer most famous for his shots of bell peppers that look like nudes.
I could not find erotic bell peppers.
So, on further investigation I discovered a quote by him to base my photo on.
"To photograph a rock, have it look like a rock, but be more than a rock. Present the significance of facts, so that they are transformed from things seen to things known."
What a vast array of work Edward Weston has done.
Here is my response to your challenge.
Thank you for getting some b&w into my project this month.

Ooooooh! This is perfect!

Very nice! I'll have to look around in the market to see if I can find any erotic bell peppers. I imagine they're not easy to find. In the absence of any, I'd say you aced the challenge.

Wonderful.. a rock that echos a bell pepper and either way is art!

What I like about this is 1) the decision to be b&w, although it seems Weston's pieces are in b&w; 2) the lovely pattern down the indention of the pepper; 3) the way the light plays on the pepper; 4) the metal look and 5) the sheen. Nicely done. It is sensuous if not erotic.
