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.

Trees [Sundays Stills]


This was shot along the south rim of the Grand Canyon earlier this fall. What caught my eye was the bizarre bending of the trunk. For anyone who has been to Taormina, Sicily, you will immediate notice the resemblance to the shape of the statue in the main town square.


This was also shot along the Grand Canyon's south rim. Even a dead tree can be beautiful!


This spectacular tree belongs to my neighbor. One does not always have to drive for hours to find beautiful fall colors around Rochester.


This ancient oak is in San Antonio, Texas, in the vicinity of the Alamo. The boughs are huge and in need of artificial support to keep them from crashing down. In retrospect, I probably should have taken multiple shots and 'stitched' them together into a panorama -- but, then again, I did not have a tripod along. Still, the single shot conveys the grandeur of this 'mighty oak'.
