From 99¢ to $3.3 million

One lucky shopper got a bargain on Gursky's diptych "99 Cents II" at Sothebys in London this week for the knockdown price of $3.3 million US

What do you think - worth it? (obviously it is to someone). Good for photography? (That's the highest price ever paid for a photograph at auction).

Are you kidding? Not worth it! The image is an icon though. Just can't help loving Gursky's massive prints, even though they're not as original todays as they once were.
