I usually drink Cava but a good champagne from time to time is much appreciated. kewl_glasses

I understand where you are coming from, mary, for many it's more money than many have seen in a year. To others, it's just pocket money. I'll simplify it a little, why drink Dom Perignon when you can have a $5.00 bottle of fizzy grape juice, it's the same thing, isn't it?

I found a 16x20 poster for $15.

I'd be happy with that.

It's the only way I'll ever be able to afford a couple of Ansel Adams' images I really like, too.

An original print made by Smith would be worth more, of THAT shot.

In the same lot there was a hand-signed, hand titled Smith from the Nurse Midwife series that sold for just under $6,000. It isn't one of his iconic images, like "Walk to Paradise Garden" but if I couldn't have "Walk" I would "settle" for a hand-signed print.

And this one is hand signed too, the problem is, it was signed on the back!

It's also one of a limited edition.

Those two factors drove up the price.

I understand, RW, it's a great shot! The price, if I read it correctly was for an authorised print. What sort of price would the original have brought? shocked_yellow

One of my all time favorite images by one of the the photographers who inspired me is available at auction at Christies.

Alas, at that price I'll have to settle for a poster, I think.

Or buy the Life magazine's "100 greatest photos" collection at $15 bucks and cut out the full page print and frame it.
