But that misses the point that Adams was just fine with HCB, and admired 
his work, but HCB thought unless Adams took his political slant on things, 
he was somehow not useful for much. Such attitudes, that the only valid 
expression in photography had to include people still exists to this day. 
Note my bias, for the most part, for people in my pictures. But I also know 
that photography is much bigger than my little circle.
