yes a see a Weston here. it isnt your typical veggie shot. it has a lot of character.
I agree with Alf. Although this is the same subject matter Weston used, the effect is quite different. Weston's shots were portraits of individual peppers, this picture seems to capture another side, an animal-like quality. They feel more like organs than vegetables.
stephanie, Alf, Jack,
many thanks for your comments. While subject- and tonality-wise I followed Weston, their 'lively' forms just called for trying a setting where there is some interaction.
There is almost an animal kind of life emanating from the interaction between the two peppers, a dominant male perhaps and a submissive female.........of course that interpretation could be reversed too!
Hommage to Edward Weston Some peppers I saw recently on PN reminded me of this one. I had shown it in "no words forums" some time ago already - but so far missed to add it to my portfolio.
