    A New "History of Photography"

    I'd like to announce that I've begun work on a new "History of Photography" book!

    Well, okay, it's not exactly new. I crossed out Beaumont Newhall's name on the old book, added mine, and I'm drawing mustaches on all the portraits. But I think it adds a whole new dimension...

    I trust there will be a new chapter on the history of Pixie photographs

    Perhaps make Fenton's cannonball photo into a bunch of angrybirds while you're at it.

    I need to get some colored pencils, so the Group f/64 photographs can be colorized.

    I'm pretty sure Ansel would approve...

    No! No! No! He was anticipating the digital age of photography, and would have done it in Photoshop.

    Well, that explains all those "Shoot in the Digital Zone System like Ansel Adams" articles in the photo magazines these days...

    Ooooh, a pint-sized martini! This could be trouble...
