    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    But...it's BIG, it must be good.

    And it probably goes with the new furniture in the Great Room.

    (I wonder which part of the world this will now call home...?)

    The furniture in the great room... you mean the lawn?

    Wonder if they would've accepted copies of Monopoly money?

    I quote from the lot description: "This work is number one from an edition of six.

    Other works from this edition are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; Tate Modern, London and the Glenstone Collection, Potomac."

    This will probably not grace anybody's livingroom.

    If there is anything to learn from this sale: Buy more photographs. They might be worth something down the road. And, no, the photographer didn't get the money (I'm sure he got a good price in the initial sale, though).

    This is his masterwork, after all. And a very important photograph. What is it they say, photograph something for what else it is? Its not what it appears to be.

    Are you implying that Gursky is one of Minor White's disciples (also called minor whites)?
