There was a recent gallery exhibit of Ansel Adams' photographs that I had to check out. What an inspiring talent that man was! I was reminded of my love of black and white photography, developing black and white film with my own two hands, and spending hours in the darkroom creating prints. Now days there's the "digital darkroom" that requires a whole new set of skills. But we often forget the mastery that creating a darkroom print entails. I SO wish I still had easy access to a darkroom because I could spend many a happy hour under the soft red glow of the lights.
I've been working mostly in color lately, but Ansel inspired me to embrace the black and white again for a bit. So...a trip up to Chicago yesterday + an Ansel Adams exhibit = Chicago in black and white. :)
