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.

The Passenger


I thought I'd depart from my macro-floral and color shots and post something different. Before commenting on this image, I apologize both for my lack of due diligence in following and in posting to my usual sites. A little 'burn out' --- Back to point. This image was originally on a Kodachrome slide [shot in 1982] shot when I was traveling from Edinburgh to Nethybridge, Scotland by train. Diagonally across the aisle sat this lady with a marvelously photogenic face; she gazed pensively out the window [which provided superb side-lighting] unaware of my presence. I took just one shot with my Canon F1. Weeks later the developed slides came back and I was quite pleased with the result. Some thirty years later, after scanning and digitizing many of those old slides, I resurrected this image [actually quite nice in color]. But, I thought it would also lend itself to B & W, so I made the conversion. I hope you enjot it as much as I do -- such amazing character in this expression. So many different stories can be conjured up about what she is thinking about!!!
