Welcome/Willkommen!

Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

A Pensive Moment

In addition to photography, I have been deeply involved in African drumming. Some of you may have seen Lori's photos/videos of drum ensembles playing at Brockport State on her Skoogfarm Journal site. The leader of our group is an amazing, modest and gentle man named Khalid Saleem. He is not only our drum instructor but also something of a spiritual guru. The photo below is a portrait of him, which I think speaks volumes -- I thought I'd submit it to the Sunday Stills/Blue exhibit.
