How dare you. We artists aren't for sale.

We want big bucks.

Was it Mark Twain who said:

Now we're talking:



According to Petapixel Kevin Abosch sold this photo for over $1,000,000.



Advertising. Bah.

I'll confess, I've eaten one raw oyster in my life.
I simply don't see a reason to ever eat another one.

I have found splinters in some of my grilled food.
That food was probably a bit tough, even after cooking a while, and probably quite fibrous too.

While I applaud the photographer making good money, I think the buyer probably needs a shrink!

Which one of you did it. Tonight on the way home I heard that someone stole a truck load of cheese, 7 tons, in US recently, and only a week ago someone stole a different truck load.

If it was Velveeta, I might know a suspect.
Won't mention his name though.

Could have bought the whole farm for that and had plenty of potatoes to photograph forever.

Wine was involved in the sale of the potato photo:

"Abosch, who is based in France and Ireland, was having dinner with an unnamed European businessman at his home when his guest saw the photograph hanging on the wall, The Sunday Times in London reported.
Abosch had photographed the potato in 2010, after it was delivered to his home in a batch of organic vegetables.
"We had two glasses of wine and he [the businessman] said, 'I really like that.' Two more glasses of wine and he said: 'I really want that,' " Abosch said
"We set the price two weeks later. It is the most I have been paid for a piece of work that has been bought [rather than commissioned]."
Kevin Abosch sells photograph of potato for $1.5 million

Well Jim, you could stand to spend a few minutes in front of a mirror with some shaving cream and a razor . . . . . .
....and maybe reacquaint yourself with the inside of a barber shop.
