Dinner (speaks to an empty stomach)? Or do you mean the potato literally "speaks to him"?
I was thinking more of a "Close Encounter Of The Third Kind" if you happened to not gleam my reference to the movie in my previous post.
Several days ago cable TV news HLN's Jennifer Westhoven was explaining to Robin Meade the list of artistic attributes that qualifies the photo as art which I think went something like...
3. Positive/Negative space
5. Lighting...and uh...I think she may have added specific to the Irish...
6. Distillation...as in potato vodka.
All qualities the potato photo clearly possesses.
Though I could be wrong on that last one. That list does resemble something I would've picked up in my art appreciation class back in the '70's in college.
