Fifty Shades of Grey in R

My wife went out to her book group tonight and their book of the month was 50 Shades of Grey. Sadly, I could think of is that plotting 50 shades in R would be a neat exercise.

require(ggplot2)
grey50 <- data.frame(
    x = rep(1:10, 5),
    y = rep(1:5, each=10),
    c = unlist(lapply(seq(10,255,5), FUN=function(x) { rgb(x,x,x, max=255) })),
    t = unlist(lapply(seq(10,255,5), FUN=function(x) { ifelse(x > 255/2, 'black', 'white') }))
)
ggplot(grey50, aes(x=x, y=y, fill=c, label=c, color=t)) +
    geom_tile() + geom_text(size=4) +
    scale_fill_identity() + scale_color_identity() + ylab(NULL) + xlab(NULL) +
    theme(axis.ticks=element_blank(), axis.text=element_blank())
