ebay photos as art

There’s plenty of sites out there that feature funny ebay photos. Most often an unusual background overpowers the product being sold. Think crazy cat about to attack a Beanie Baby.

I just stumbled across a new (or new to me) genre. It’s unintentionally aesthetically pleasing photos. I love the photo above by ebay seller acace. The monochromatic palette he chose is elegantly simple. The soft subtle highlights are mimicked in the almost white background. The handwriting is refined, yet very approachable and honest. The angle of the writing reflects the sense of perspective of which the photo is taken.

You think the seller would think I’m nuts to ask to purchase the original, hi-res image?
