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.

Colgate Rochester Tower [Sky Watch Friday]

I realize there is not much sky for this SWF post, but there is enough to justify including it. The Colgate Rochester Divinity School has a marvelous (neo)Gothic tower that has always fascinated me. Unfortunately, it is up on a hill and photographing it is problematic; e.g., the best views are always ruined by poles, power lines, etc. BUT, as my wife and I were walking through Highland Park during the Lilac Festival, I just happened to notice the tower through a small opening in the trees. It is the only place in the park where there is a view of it. BINGO! Got the tower [albeit just a glimpse] and foliage.
