Edward Weston’s photograph of a green pepper caught my attention when I was studying art history. It’s a beautiful specimen; it teaches us to take the time to look at everyday things closely. When I take my students to the Farmer’s Market in Raleigh, I wander through the displays looking for interesting shapes to take back for the students to photograph. They have more fun making creatures and playing with the food than studying its shape but I get to take them home afterwards and photograph them all I want. This yellow pepper looks like a lot Kermit to me; such a happy expression!
