Ignoring artistic merit...

This is a beautiful quote about a recent Leibovitz photograph for the 2009 Lavazza Calendar

...done intentionally, front to back, top to bottom, money-no-object, by an army of the most talented professionals, from art director to stylists to make-up artists to baby-wranglers to lighting assistants to photographer to digital retoucher, all working assiduously in concert in pursuit of the utterly pointless.

Substitute photography for software development -- boom, I'm transported to one or two projects from my past.

Tip of the hat to Kottke, Worst photo ever?.
