Ansel Adams

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     Do you take pictures? Do other people in your family or friends? Taking pictures is easier now than it was in the past, yet most people never get beyond taking snapshots. Those who do often make us all gasp with their talent to capture beauty in even the plainest scenes. One such man was Ansel Adams. In his camera, the plain became beautiful and the beautiful became breathtaking.
 
2     Ansel Easton Adams was born in San Francisco on February 20, 1902. He was only four when the great earthquake of 1906 hit. He fell and hit a garden wall face first, breaking and scaring his nose. It was crooked for the rest of his life.
 
3     The young man was bored in school but interested in learning. His parents allowed him to leave school at age 13 with the idea of him learning independently. His father purchased a season pass to the Panama-Pacific Exposition to help him study, and he attended almost every day. For subjects that Ansel had trouble with, his father hired tutors.
