I wish I could remember the book, but I read a mention that Ansel Adams had strong Autistic tendencies, although wasn't diagnosed, likely a result of the times. It would certainly explain his depth of knowledge of his art.
**PS. I don't claim this to be fact! Just a blurb I read at an unknown time from an unknown source. Use info at your discretion :)
Thanks for the responses.
I'll try to make a less flippant response than I did before.
Like most people I know who do what I do, whether in my day job(s) or in photography or other creative pursuits, I do wonder if certain tendencies are gifts or curses. I don't know when I started having to worry about that but probably ever since I was forced to sit still in kindergarten :) If your goal in life as one of "our" kind of people is just to fit in, then you'll drive yourself mad. Embrace your differences of perspective, try not to freak people out, and be happy that artistic pursuits are a good outlet for you! Some people don't need that like bread and water... pity them and not yourself ;)
I don't know much about Aspergers, but I have a feeling you'll be fine. Alan.
