In 1981, I was among students in what would be Ansel Adams’ final photography workshop at Yosemite National Park.  It was the year of my 10th high school reunion. I told Ansel that choosing between it and the workshop was no contest. He gave me a hug. He. Gave. Me. A. Hug. And I haven’t washed since. OK, kidding.
