February 20th

In honor of the day I would like to dedicate it to it to Ansel Adams, an American landscape photographer born today in 1902. He is best known for his black and white photographs based primarily in the West. Though this brilliant photographer passed 25 years ago, it is great that we can still reflect on his amazing photographs.

"A good photograph is knowing where to stand."

"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."

"I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!"

"Both the grand and the intimate aspects of nature can be revealed in the expressive photograph. Both can stir enduring affirmations and discoveries, and can surely help the spectator in his search for identification with the vast world of natural beauty and the wonder surrounding him."
