Ansel Adams Quote
I would never apologize for photographing rocks. Rocks can be very beautiful. But, yes, people have asked why I don't put people into my pictures of the natural scene. I respond, There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer. That usually doesn't go over at all.
