Home's Cool

I often wonder at the strength and courage my father had in taking me out of the traditional school situation and providing me with these extraordinary learning experiences.  I am certain he established the positive direction of my life that otherwise, given my native hyperactivity, could have been confused and catastrophic.  I trace who I am and the direction of my development to those years of growing up in our house on the dunes, propelled especially by an internal spark tenderly kept alive and glowing by my father.

From the biography of Ansel Adams (New York Graphic Society, 1985)

I always knew Ansel Adams was an incredible photographer. Now I know why :o).
