Have any old calendars laying around? Gather up your calendars and any others you can get your hands on and head over to the Ansel Adams Gallery for a lesson on how to make money. Apparently, the gallery has been dismantling old calendars, matting the pages, and then selling them as photographic prints. That’s right. They are recycling old calendars as photographic prints. The gallery claims there is nothing wrong with this practice, but it smells wrong to me, and I don’t think Ansel Adams would approve of it.

This is wrong on so many levels, I have no words……
I love that you tagged this with “not satire”. 🙂
I have been known to frame old calendar pictures for my own use, but would never tink of selling them! Carol Runyon 28 Augusta Dr. Lincoln, IL 62656 (217) 732- 9480
I have framed and sold old calendar photos, but labeled as such and simply for nostalgia. Selling them as photographic prints is dishonest at best. – Fawn
