Here’s why I will never make it as a professional photographer.

Instapundit links to this page with a photograph and labels it a “very cool baseball photo”. The target article describes it with “the glories of the photograph are self-evident”. I, however, would have put it in the “not worth printing, but not worth deleting” pile that consumes ever larger amounts of my hard drive space. I did, however, get some very positive feedback on my aesthetic sense from the swim team parents.

You’ve got to be joking. That’s Don Zimmer, sitting next to some guy who makes Don Zimmer look like a kid in short pants. What a great photo.

I have not the slightest idea who Don Zimmer is.

But it is a nice illustration of how it’s the people, not the photography, that makes the image.

art should stand on it’s own. that picture is pretty generic if you don’t know the background story, whereas Ansel Adams work speaks for itself. just my $0.02
