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.

Salt Lake City Sundown I [Sky Watch Friday]


Some 30 years ago we spent a year living in Salt Lake City, as I was on sabbatical leave from the University of Rochester. It was a fantastic year for us -- we took up skiing and camping -- The sheer physical beauty of the environs was almost overwhelming; I would have settled there in a heartbeat if there had been a faculty position. But, I still have pictures [slides] to remember the place. Of course, now I've scanned said slides and cleaned them up a bit. This view was shot from the small balcony outside the bedroom of our rental house. Sunsets were so beautiful looking northwest into the valley, that  I set up my camera and tripod and left them standing by the door to the balcony. Over the next several weeks, I'll post some shots -- so different from one to the other. Hope you like them. Cheers--
