It Pays to be Thrifty….. $200 Million Dollars!!!!

That’s riiiiight!!! A Pasadena man named Rick Norsigian purchased 65 glass negatives from a garage sale over a decade ago, talking down the seller from $70.00 down to $45.00. Turns out that those negatives were actually the long lost works of famed photographer Ansel Adams from the 1930′s. Once believed to be lost in a fire, these negatives are thought to be the “missing link” in Adam’s work. Now the collection could be worth as much as $200 million dollars! See, it pays to be thrifty! Check out some of the long lost photos below!

Ansel Adams was famous for his powerful landscape portraits.
