homage to Weston

Ever since I saw Edward Weston's Pepper, I wanted to try it.  For a year, I have closely examined every pepper in grocery stores and farmers' markets.  Some were not suitable, a few were - but the shots never worked out.  Yesterday everything came together.  A lot of people will tell you to be original, don't copy other photographers - and I would agree to a point.  You can learn a lot trying to figure out how they do what they do and then bring that learning to your own work - I know I learned a great deal.  And I will never look at a pepper the same way again. :)
