    Virginia Adams

    Here is a photo I made on 35mm film of Ansel's late wife, Virginia, at the Adams' home back in 1986 two years after Ansel's death. I was part of Adams' Workshop sponsored by the Friends of Photography and Virginia Adams was kind enough to allow some of us to photograph her.

    Very nice portrait. She was supposedly camera shy but maybe not so much in her later years.
    I met both her and AA in Yosemite in 1976 but did not photograph them. They were in a hurry to get home. I did get AA's autograph on the back of one his post cards before they left.

    I was able to meet Virginia a couple times and had the pleasure of having lunch with her and others at her home once before a FoP workshop, but a little later than you -- as a participant in 1987, and the lunch as an assistant in 1991. She was a wonderful person. Sorry, no pictures either...
