My beloved uncle, John Henry Stassen, has been a dedicated and accomplished amateur photographer for many years now. He's just put up a gallery of over a hundred of his photographs, and they're marvelous. They range from the abstract to the romantic to the sharply observed mundane. Accuse me of bias if you like, but I think they're fabulous. To whet your appetite, here are four that I like. (The links go to the photos on his web site.)
Check out the rest here. You can also buy copies should you be so inclined.
