Dr. Sneed and I split a little Ansel Adams Yosemite print from the AA gallery. Then I found a W. Eugene Smith photo he had shot for Life Magazine that we got at a bargain. I'm always picking at cheap WWII photos. 12.00 and under. Some are really wonderful.
Got a stack of others though I certainly miss some jewels because I'm not bidding very hard. I'd rather have these prints made for news than the modern archive reprints. I haven't had much luck with Owens Archive and others. One I won was a British Press photo that was a ferrotyped 11X14 with a wonderful range of tones. Amazing what is available.
