AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy birthday, Adams.

Adams, Aspens, Northern New Mexico, 1958


Ansel Adams was born on this day in 1902.

Wilderness, or wildness, is a mystique.  A religion, an intense philosophy, a dream of ideal society—these are also mystiques.  As the fisherman depends upon the river, lakes and seas, and the farmer upon the land for his existence, so does mankind depend upon the beauty of the world about him for his spiritual and emotional existence.
