Bad news for vegetarians--vegetables have faces and feelings, too. Oh my!

(As cut, no photomanipulation; this was it's real face...which inspired the photo and title.)

Wow, this is excellent! You've created an emotional response from a very un-emotional subject. Perfect light, too - it adds great depth!

Thanks! This was a crude setup... done in my kitchen on my black glass stovetop with black foam core behind the pepper. I used the overhead kitchen lights and a flashlight. The camera was on a tripod, of course.

Thanks, Carolyn. I suspect the pepper really was screaming! After seeing a documentary in 1979 about how plants register a reaction when hooked up to a lie-detector machine, I've never looked at them the same way again. They react to our thought about harming them, as well as harming them or harming other living things. It's amazing.

Bev:

I immediately thought of The Scream without even looking at the title. Another great entry.

Cheers,
Rich

Bev, your "crude setup" is how I shoot a lot of my stuff! God bless the flashlight!

Love this shot.

I consider it a superb shot precisely because the idea is so banal. I've seen many similar pictures and always wondered what else can be done. Well, I'll now watch quietly and learn. All you'll hear are my clapping hands.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

In space, nobody can hear you scream This one looks as if it is floating in the big black void out there. Great find.

How can I eat vegetables from now on
I like this, so edible
