    115 of Weston's sets will be on display on the Monterrey Peninsula for a long time.

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I do hope you all enjoy his work... I do.

    Indeed, thanks for posting.
    I'm thinking it might be worth an 11 hour ride in the car...

    A few years back--late 1960d iirc, I saw an original print of Pepper Nr. 30 in an art museum in Cincinnati. I could not move away from it. I sat for what seemed like hours, entranced by the purity of the composition, the tonality, and the apparent depth of image on a flat surface. I could not believe a photograph could be so moving to me.

    FWIW, photographing near Carmel some years back, my friend posed me sitting on some rocks on "Weston Beach" with my Ranger 9 exposure meter in my lap. He titled it "John and Weston, Monterey, Ca."

    Oh, yesss! for me it will be 6 hours drive from Newmarket, Ontario. Never saw an original EW picture before so it will definitely worth the effort. Will wait for the spring though
