This is a recently re-discovered photo from our
last trip to South Padre Island in May.
I took it to remember the feelings I had at the very moment
when I finished reading the book shown, because it made a
huge impact on my understanding of both the history of
photography as art, and where I want to go with my own work.
Published when I was but four years old, and presenting
the best recorded written works of some
of the greatest photographers of the last century
including Adams, Strand, Weston and Stieglitz, this
little gem cost me $3 and has zero pictures.
The essays I found between the covers blew my mind.
