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.

What the...? [Sky Watch Friday]

Sometimes, unexpectedly neat things arise when you play around in Photoshop Elements. After my friend Lori clued me in on the Posterize function, I gave it a try. I liked what I saw and decided it was worth sharing. Hope you agree and will try it on some of your own images.

Tranquil Sunset 2 [Sky Watch Friday]

Tough to get back to the frozen tundra of Rochester after two balmy weeks in Aruba --sigh-- But, a pic like this warms me up. Of the few times we hung around on the beach to wait for the sunset, we caught a good one here [along with the bird-in-flight]. This was shot [hand held] with my traveling 'point and shoot Canon A720. If you keep scrolling back into my archive, you'll come across an even more dramatic  Tranquil Sunset 1, which was taken last year [about 100 feet closer to the shore].
