    Ok. looks like John will be down there for a few days this weekend and I just booked my flight today. I will be there on Saturday the 28th from 12:00pm then flying out Sunday around 11am. My current plan is to see the show, and do some Christchurch street photography. I know it's short notice but if anyone else thinks they might be around PM me and I'll get my cellphone number to you. I am majorly looking forward to seeing this collection!

    Bump.

    Well Sean and I are scheduled to be in Chch early Sat morning and leaving Sun mid day. We'll be immersed in the exhibition of top 50 Adams prints for the Sat afternoon (without doubt, as long as they're open).

    We have a few who expressed interest. Anyone else wishing to joining us; just drop me a msg for arrangements.

    Cheers, John.

    I got back a few hours ago, pretty exhausted but what a trip! The exhibit was absolutely incredible. Also John, Kathy & her family were a joy to hang out with. I had only seen two lesser known Adams prints in real life before and to see 50 of his best was overwhelming to say the least. There were a few that John and I must have stared at for hours in awe. The reproductions truly miss the glow and much of the amazing tonal scale and depth in the real thing. I'm not sure where the exhibit is headed next but it is a must see. Now... off to check emails and 750 new posts since my last visit

    Welcome back Sean. I sure wish I could have joined you; I love Christchurch, and of course, Ansel Adams prints are simply stunning close up.

    Superb!

    I am back too and can only echo the enthusiasm and sentiments expressed by Sean. It was just wonderful to view the actual prints of a photographer I have long admired....and yes they were just so much better in reality than any reproductions I have seen in before. Just wow!

    Thanks Sean and John for being such great company...my family and I had a wonderful time.

    Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Fine exhibition of the highest order! Great to share it with Kathy and Sean. As soon as we get the videos out of the pesky digi-gizmo .... I'll pop them up.

    Greetings NZ from Hong Kong!

    I saw the show shortly before I left the country (was saying goodbye to family in ChCh). I had gone of AA in a big way before seeing the show, but was actually drawn into a few of his images and left with a better appreciation of his skills.

    He really loved that red filter didn't he ....

    Anyway

    I'm with you on that one...........I saw the museum set in Wellington many years ago........simply breathtaking.

    But now I have a little more experience in photography, for my taste he uses the red filter too much and prints a bit hard. Would love to see some of his negs.

    Is it hot up there in HK?..........are you shopping for LF?
