    Very enjoyable-thanks.
    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.

    Willard van Dyke was one of the founders, with Weston, of the F/64 group, so I think there is a real appreciation for Weston and his work evidenced in this film.

    Having seen this film, here, for the first time, I appreciate the link having been posted. At the same time, I had a feeling of sadness watching it. It appeared to me that he was exhibiting the symptoms of the Parkinson's disease which ended his ability to photograph in 1948, the year van Dyke's film was published.

    It's a shame he didn't speak. I have always wanted to know what he sounded like.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Great film. Two thoughts: 1) Dodging while contact printing; 2) Charis(!)

    I had not seen the film in years, and share your sadness watching Weston in failing health. I met him on family visits to his home and recall observing the slow decline of his health from the early 1950's until his death in 1958. His voice became a whisper as a result of Parkinson's, but his mind was as brilliant as ever.

    The apprentice in the film was an actress, Franny Clausen. I had forgotten that a young Morley Baer was in the film, appearing at the house and at Pt. Lobos.

    To me, Adams sounded quite a bit like Ronald Reagan. Similar accent.

    I imagine Weston being much more soft spoken.

    I just returned from a week's sojourn to Carmel and the Monterey penninsula and watching this brought it all back to me. Point Lobos, 17 Mile Drive, Big Sur etc, it's no wonder so many great artists were drawn to the area.

    I managed to fit in a few exhibitions during the day and was fortunate to see some of Adams, Weston and Sexton's work in the flesh.........they brought tears to my eyes and gave me a good indication of what can be achieved if you are dedicated and talented enough.

    I have had the video tape for years and wanted it on DVD. Thanks for letting me upgrade it to more modern media! I downloaded and burned it yesterday. *Sigh*

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”
