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.

Old Glory [Sky Watch Friday]


This 'minimalist' photo was shot outside a trading post in south-central Arizona. The wind-whipped flag stood out beautifully against the clear blue morning sky [somewhat darkened by the polarizing filter].  This image is sort of a imetaphor for our space exploration program. A 'grounded' Old Glory [atop the trading post roof] is waving to the moon, reminding it that we put a man there.
