adoring photography {rodney smith}

I'm excited to have just found that the famous photographer,
(actually 'greatest' me thinks),
Rodney Smith has a blog! He is the famous photog of this image,
one of my favorites...

Photography was one of my first artistic loves, Ansel Adams being my inspiration. I took a class in college just for the fun of it and really got into the black and white photo taking and developing process. I remember shopping for my own dark room materials and my now-adoring-husband/then-adoring-fiance looking at me like I was crazy....wonder what I'd be doing today had I found a reasonably priced enlarger back then?!! Somewhere I have a portfolio...somewhere in the 'boxes of life' Lol!

Anyways..enjoy more of Rodney's work and check out his blog here...

he's blogging as he works on his new book...'The End'.

A beautiful weekend to all!

I'd never heard of him and I *heart* his work already!

I'm a big black and white photography fan and I have many of Ansel Adams' books, including the big one that was released half a dozen years ago to commemorate all his stuff.....But, I'm guessing you're not too surprised by that. :)

Ansel Adams was one of the very first artists that I fell in love with. I had never heard of Rodney Smith but from the photos you have posted I can already tell I will LOVE all his work!

Happy Friday Sweetie!
