    John Sexton
    Recollections: Three Decades of Photographs
    John Sexton first fell in love with photography in the 1960s and was a close associate of Ansel Adams until Adams's death in 1984. Sexton will discuss his new book and share images and insights from more than three decades practicing the craft of black-and-white photography, including images of Yosemite Valley.


    A limited number of books will be available for sale at the GEH book store. I expect you can buy books before the lecture if you want to avoid waiting in line. John will be happy to sign the books.

    I've got an advanced copy of the book. It is outstanding. Hubby says he will get me a hardbound copy for Christmas. Well worth the price.

    The info about this Sat's seminar says there are only 200 seats - does anyone know if there will still be tickets at the door?

    I didn't make this lecture last night, but a friend did, and she said it was great. Lot's of good stories, and very humorous speaker. It should be worth the effort to go.

    Mark - I'm going. I haven't heard back about tickets, but 3 of us are going anyway (the other 2 are sure we'll get in). Anyway, I think I'll be wearing my black hooded APUG sweatshirt and I have longish blonde hair. Hope to meet you!

    Dammit, I totally forgot the 10/19 lecture at GEH. When I remembered it (on the 20th!) I was really p!ssed. Oh well.

    PE: Did you go? If so, how was it?

    Bethe- Just got an e-mail from the PCC indicating that they would have tickets at the door. I will probably be wearing a black leather jacket, I have short hair and wear glasses, and I will have an attractive young lady (long brown hair) with me.
