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.

Opening Day at the MAC Pool [Sky Watch Friday]

Well, there isn't much sky to discern, but that's part of the the charm of this shot. The Midtown Athletic Club pool opened at 6:30 A.M. on April 1, 2011. The temperature was 45 F, but the water temperature was 81 F, hence the 'steamy' appearance. About a dozen or so brave souls [or nut-cases] were on hand to inaugurate the swim season-- the pool will remain open 'til the end of Nov. Helluva year!!!

Bleeding Hearts [Today's Flowers]

There is something about this flower that I find irresistible. They are eye-catching, yet seemingly always too close to the ground to get in on, not to mention that they grow up-side down--lol

Day Lily & Rain Drops [Sunday Stills]

 It seems like we are frequently going somewhere during a rain shower. That being the case, why not take advantage of what Mother Nature has to offer. I'm not sure what the dark berries(?) are, but they offer a nice balance to the lilies.
