I don't understand why Judy and others choose to rip Edward Weston.

He has a passion for photography, and only offered advice when he was asked.

He was best known, by those of the now dead, God rest the soul of Frances Baer who died last year. She was his housekeeper, friend and wife of an admirer, her husband Morely Baer.

She said she'd always remember him for his Sundays. He's open his studio, put one photograph on an easil, bres a pot of tea and entertain visitors. Rarely would he talk about the picture, and his prices were always affordable so the most people could own one.

His grandson Kim was surprised, and revealed that EW only made 25 prints of his most called for picture, Pepper #40. Otherwise, he made very few.

the end
