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.

Magnolia Tree in Full Bloom


After the rainiest April on record, the sun has begun to appear with greater regularity in Rochester, NY. And, everything is turning green and in the process of blooming. Our magnolia tree is usually the last one to reach its peak, and it is just about there.


              As beautiful as they may be, unfortunately, the magnolias around here have no scent.


   I really like this image. Think I'll use it for a photo note/greeting card. The down side of all this is that    when the petals come down, there will be one helluva mess to contend with. Sigh--
