    I agree with Jim...while both Siskind and Weston were great photographers, I think that Brett Weston had a greater natural talent of recognizing and depicting the interplay of forms and tonal scale. Yes, Garapata Beach absolutely speaks to me at a subliminal level.

    Hmm, I must have misunderstood the question. Aarron was no slouch, I've loved prints of his that I've seen in person. but Edward Weston was by far my favorite photographer--until I rediscovered Brett years after the first time. The first time I just compared him to Edward and found him lacking, probably just because of the difference in style and I was absorbed with EW at the time. Now, Brett is my favorite of the 2, and all the rest that ever lived. Of course Brett had a much longer healthy yworking life than EW too, no telling what E would have produced had he not become ill.

    Unfortunately, it lacks color, then it would be perfect.
