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.

Rochester's High Falls [Sky Watch Friday]


Right in the heart of downtown Rochester is a waterfall [ca. 80 feet high]; actually, there is a 2nd one further along the Genesee River. I had lived here more than 10 years and was unaware of its existence. My discovery of it is somewhat of an embarrassment. I was flying back from somewhere or other and, as we happened to pass over the downtown area, I looked down and saw the falls. I exclaimed,"Where has the plane been diverted to?" LOL-- my bad-- Anyway, it is a wonderful sight, albeit not Niagara Falls [which is about 1 1/2 hours away].  There is quite a bit here to see/enjoy in the Flower [nee Flour] City. So, come on down/up/over--
