Ansel Adams is an inspiration to me. He was born in 1902 and lived until 1984. During his
lifetime he was a pioneer of photography. 
He captured some of the most stunning images of Yellowstone, Teton National and other Parks in the western U.S. 
He used pack animals to help carry his 8x10 camera and other equipment.
We flew on a plane and drove through Yellowstone in a Suburban. When I came upon this scene, I reached into my pocket and pulled out a camera that wasn't much bigger than a deck of cards and capture this photograph.
I can't help wonder what old Ansel would have done if he'd has access to that technology.

    He would have taken beautiful pictures--as you do!!

  2. I agree with fish ducky

  3. I would hope that not much would be different, but that's probably a stretch, no?


  4. I think that he would have used it to get nice clear crisp images of the places he was visiting. Wow, 8x 10 heavy camera sure must have been a cumbersome piece of equipment to carry and set up to take photographs. I'm sure he would have like our nice digital cameras.

  7. Great picture. He probably would have been happy for the light load!
