Today marks the 122nd birthday of Ansel Adams. This pic of us was taken in 1979. Ansel was one of the most delightful people I have known and his spirit still warms my heart. @cntrforcreativephoto @beckysenfccp @petesouza @alanrossphotography @johnsextonphoto @improvambassador @nickkennerly @j_kennerly @utnicky @mikebarnicle @stephenwilkes @stevemccurryofficial @davidburnettfoto @markpetersonpixs @bobmcneelyphoto @jaykernis @wapokp @estatereality @helenhunt @jeffreynordling @chao_time @yamashitaphoto ...

A real Whodunnit. I find feather-faced Olive guilty. Maybe she can get out of the doghouse with time off for good behavior. She unfortunately does not believe in good behavior. @katiemeitayy @improvambassador @j_kennerly @carolguzy @petesouza @whipplc @utnicky @johnrodphotography @nickkristof @greta @wapokp ...

Happy President’s Day! Five presidents, Oval Office, Jan. 7, 2009. (L-R) Former Pres. George Bush, Pres-elect Barack Obama, President George W. Bush, former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. (No, Carter isn’t that much shorter, just a matter of perspective...). This was the 5th time that five presidents had gathered up to this point and I was there for all. @cntrforcreativephoto @bush41library @thebushcenter @carterlibrary39 @wjclibrary42 @davidvaldezusa @petesouza @prezfotog @bobmcneelyphoto @sharon.farmer.1481 @whipplc @mikebarnicle @jon.meacham @improvambassador ...

President Gerald R. Ford, unlike Richard Nixon and a recent former one not to be mentioned, had an excellent relationship with the press corps, even though at times he found them difficult, unreasonable. and ornery. He told me, “That’s the way it’s supposed to be.” Ford was a guy who understood the meaning of our democracy, particularly freedom of the press. I took this photo in 1976, and it is a fair representation of his accessibility and openness. There was one instance where his press secretary Ron Nessen told him he didn’t have to call on one particular reporter who always asked off-the-wall and sometimes hostile questions. Ford waved off the idea and told Ron, “I just can’t wait to hear what she’s going to ask me.” Ford was the perfect president for a very difficult time. I miss the guy. A lot. @sfbpanda @cvn78_grford @geraldfordfoundation @davidvaldezusa @bobmcneelyphoto @sharon.farmer.1481 @prezfotog @petesouza @shealahdcphoto @schultzinit @callieshell @griffinmuseum @joycenalbog @whipplc @georgewbush @barackobama @joebiden ...

Cheney & Kennerly 2024! (Something else for magats to chew on). Had lunch with @liz.cheney today at @thepienburger in #pasadena (great place). Liz and I have known each other for 50 years since her dad and I worked in the Ford White House. She’s the bravest pol in America taking on the biggest blowhard known to mankind. Yesterday she said (on X) that @taylorswift is a national treasure.

We lost James Soladay, father of @rebeccakennerly Jay Soladay, and Mark Soladay eight years ago today. He was a shrewd, acerbic, and eccentric guy whom I loved hanging out with at his Oregon home. Jim was a writer, a thinker, and a fantastic grandfather to @nickkennerly, his namesake James Kennerly, @taililasoladay & @mollysoladay He also “adopted” Byron Kennerly @improvambassador as a grandson! But most of all I appreciate him for producing Rebecca, my brilliant and loving wife who is truly her father`s daughter.

I was there to capture the historic moment when Pope John Paul II met Castro in Cuba 26 yrs ago, Jan. 21, 1998. It was the first visit ever of a pope to that island. Hours later the skies over Havana were darkened by planes bearing network anchors fleeing back to the U.S. to cover the breaking Clinton-Lewinsky story. So much for JP2. I stayed on, however, thought the Juan Pablo Secundo story was way more visual. I did cover Clinton’s impeachment and other elements of the story, so all was not lost, plus it was worth being there to see Fidel wearing a suit! @cntrforcreativephoto @whipplc @mikebarnicle @improvambassador @zirinskysusan @joescarborough @glenn_thrush @jaykernis @petesouza @wapokp @time @pulitzerprizes ...
