Amazing Art of Ansel Adams

Shadows of light and darkness Contrasting images of El Capitan Half Dome sliced by an ice age glacier I met him that day in Yosemite Touched by the unique qualities of his photos Fine prints are displayed at his gallery I marveled at his skill Black and white contrasts Create spiritual moments and introspection I brought him home with me His work now hangs in my office Ever inspiring, ever grand
*Written March 15, 2015, by Carolyn Devonshire in honor of black-and-white photographer Ansel Adams and his stunning photos of Yosemite National Park.

    I also love his work. In my first apartment, I had some of his prints hanging. I wish I still had them...hugs, Rhonda

    I am familiar with this wonderful work Carolyn. How nice you got to know him through his art and enjoy owning his work.

    All things start out black and white, So you eventually will get them right. Have saved place for each one in my heart, Even tough we are miles apart. At another picture of his will look and think of the time it took, To have explained in picture form a bright day about to have a big storm. James Thomas Horn

    I have spent many hours with Ansel and hiking Yosemite . . . his art in all shades of blacks and greys fills my heart with adventure. Your words gave me a glimpse of you . . . a delightful portrait. 7

    As is this poem!

    This is lyrical beauty, Carolyn! I have to admit that I had to search Ansel Adams and discovered what a capable artist he was. Black & White photos will continue to impress. I hope this is for Giorgio's contest; it would make a very worthy entry! Hugs // paul
