He took pictures at the Japanese Internment camp at Manzanar too....
Mediocre street photography - although there are some good moments captured.
Adams just needed to get closer.
Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
I like the pole coming out of the head. It makes the picture much more visually interesting to me. Reminds me of perhaps my favorite photographer, Mr. Lee Friedlander.
Not much of this is really street photography IMO.

Me too. It's sort of a visual "he puts his pants on one leg at a time just like me" moment. Heck, I can do poles growing out of people's heads at least as good as St. Ansel! Who knew??
"They are the proof that something was there and no longer is. Like a stain. And the stillness of them is boggling. You can turn away but when you come back they’ll still be there looking at you."
