I read about this not so long time ago on a different forum and I was also shocked. They were very lucky because they invested literary nothing and now they are millionaire. Why is nobody willing to sell me Mona Lisa for the same price and discover how much the photo really worth some years later? Well this is a great question but nobody will give me an answer.

last I heard they turned out to be Uncle Earl's at not long lost Adams after all.

I read the same thing a few days ago and laughed. What a great compliment to Uncle Earl.

Absolutely! that must be one of the greatest compliments a landscape photographer could receive.

D'oh! Interesting story though. I wonder if they did it on purpose or if it was an honest mistake. Either way, sucks to be them.
