I haven't been able to shoot any this week, so here's a reprocessed version of a recent photo. If you've been keeping up with the latest in the art world, you'll know that someone bought $200 million dollars worth of Ansel Adams negatives at a yard sale for $45. That created quite a splash of controversy. Now, it appears that the negatives weren't from Ansel, they were from Uncle Earl and that puts their worth more towards the $45 mark I suppose. You can read more about it here (with a tip of the hat to the good site The Online Photographer for the info).

Studying photographs and other pieces of art in an 'autopsy' manner is fascinating. We do it all the time when we look at EXIF data to see the aperture and other camera settings. My mother-in-law once pointed out the inconsistency in the lighting of a painting that I own and love, I've never looked at it the same since.

Well, maybe some new photographs will jump out at me tonight.
