Top 10 Most Pricey Photos!

As usual, on my regular prowl on the cyber world, I came across this article featuring the top 10 most expensive photos in the world. In my own honest opinion, I am still wondering how could some of these photos fetched such a high price... maybe to the artistic eyes, they are worth the price but hmm.. I dunno... it's really weird to see such photos selling for so much... Anyway, enjoy!

Well...like you said maybe to the artistic eye they're worth that much. I think it also depends on who bought them. It was maybe something of great menaing to them?? hmm.. who knows...but I, too do not agree with the prices....chocolate caN be worth higher. =D

If you hadn't told us the prices my highest guess would have been around 100,000 bucks. Isn't it amazing for what, sorry, but "crap" people are willing to pay so much for when they could use the money for soooo many better things/ causes?
