Ansel Adams Redwoods Founder’s Grove

I always loved Adam

Ansel’s work

in black and white

photography

I had seen one print here and there hung

on another’s wall

but I didn’t know his name back then

I never owned his prints

and then I met my wife

about twenty years ago

and amazingly she had 4 of his prints

on the floor leaned up against a wall

one an ocean,

two a mountainous valley,

three a granite mountain side

and this one with tall forest trees

and I hammered the nails

and hung each one on

the wall and wanted

to be absorbed into

his enchanted forest.
