The mystery of the Ansel Adams long lost negatives that I recently wrote about deepens.  As reported by KTVU in Oakland, CA someone has stepped up to cast more doubt on the authenticity of the negatives.  The family of Ansel Adams claims the negatives bought at a garage sale for $45 are not the work of Adams.  Experts disagree and say they are his work and are worth upwards of $200 million.  But now a California woman has presented images taken by her uncle that are remarkably similar to those that are said to be from Adams.  So similar in fact that one Adams expert is questioning if the garage sale finds are in fact the work of Adams.

So the authenticity is still up in the air and the owner of the negatives can’t quite collect his $200 million yet.
