    Are those Red Ball Keds she's wearing?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I'm still shocked that the library of Congress offers free downloads of high-res negative scans of herbest images.I wonder if you would like that.But if you want your very own copy of Migrant Mother go ahead and search the bibrary of that wonderful image.original prints sell around $40k these days and they offer it for free.I have even seen some peopleselling their versions of it.

    Ralph, you have discovered a gap in the market.

    Thanks Ralph. I was not aware of that.

    Dorothea Lange remains one of my favorite photographers and I can literally spend hours reviewing and studying her images.

    The Library of Congress has a whole series of photos that belong to the public, I bought quite a few years of ago, including Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans.

    In those days they were hand printed on silver gelatin paper and about $25

    Any of the images taken in the "dust bowl days" hired by photographers for the government are available. One just needs to know the plate number and you can order them at will
