Apropos Todd McClellan's "Old Camera" from last Wednesday, I wonder if this too is art?
It's the parts that go into the famous 3.2-liter naturally-aspirated inline 6-cylinder BMW engine last seen in the E85 Z4 in the summer of 2008 (code S54B32, in case there are any BMW people reading this).
Perhaps the picture's not art, but it is one good if trivial indication of how artistic and utilitarian photography tend to feed off each other.
Whether the engine is art is a deeper argument, but not on topic.
P.S. I can't find the original source for the photo but it almost has to be BMW.
