"Talk about a photographic treasure trove! Over 600 signed prints by legendary American photographer Ansel Adams have been discovered in a box at the University of California's Berkeley campus.
 
The prints -- totalling 605 in number -- were part of a project Adams had been hired for in the 1960s, which involved photographing the UC system. The images were slated to be part of a coffee table-sized book celebrating the university system's centennial in 1968.
 
But the man who hired Adams at the time, University of California President Clark Kerr, was fired by then Governor Ronald Reagan and the centennial project was mothballed. Quite literally.
 
The prints were discovered recently by UC Berkeley theater and dance professor Catherine Cole after she had been combing through documents in the school archive for an unrelated project."

From Benro:
 
Available in a choice of modern metallic colors, the stylish new MeFOTO Travel Tripod Kit quickly and easily converts to a monopod.
 
North White Plains, NY - October 1, 2012 - Benro, manufacturer of tripods, monopods and heads designed for today’s demanding professional photographers and filmmakers, announces today the eye-catching and very versatile new MeFOTO Transfunctional Travel Tripod Kits.
