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.

Cityscape Reflections [Sky Watch Friday]

Hard to believe another week has flown by. Here is an image I've been meaning to post for many a moon. On a city walk/photo shoot in Rochester, I was fortunate to come across this group of windows that reflected different portions of the sky and buildings. It was a no brainer that I was looking at something worth shooting -- the interesting part was getting it composed right. I think I got it -- this was taken with my trusty Kodak point and shoot.

Firemen Memorial @ Mt. Hope Cemetery [Sky Watch Friday]

Before commenting on this photo, I just want to say it's hard to believe that more than two months have passed since my last posting. I was simply pre-occupied with lots of other stuff and inertia set in. So, I don't imagine that I will have the same passion/dedication here as before. It is what it is --- Anyway, this image was taken in the Mt. Hope Cemetery, which is Rochester's most famous burial place [containing such dignitaries as Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglas]. The statue is dedicated to all the local firemen who have passed on, many dying in the line of duty. The cemetery covers a huge area and offers many photo opportunities, especially in the right light.
