Cabbage Leaf, 1931.

I'm a huge fan of straight photography, which is a style of photography that captures natural beauty with minimal image manipulation.  One of my favorite photographers to pioneer this style of photography is Edward Weston (1886 - 1958).  I especially love his study of natural objects like vegetables.  Who would've thought that a pepper could look so sensual?
