We got along in a basically fine friendship. I mean, we never had any of *that* kicking. Dorothea was always a little reserved…total dedication. Nothing else was going to interfere. And she never had small talk. She could do it for about two minutes and then she’d bring the subject around to something of interest, which I think is good. Small talk is pretty terrible under any conditions. You know how people can just yak and yak and yak…Dorothea had no patience at all with that kind of waste of time and all the people she knew were all dynamic.
—  Ansel Adams on Dorothea Lange (and why Dorothea and I would be besties)
