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.

This is a photo  that I took during a dress rehearsal of Sankofa, the magnificent African Dance and Drum Ensemble at Brockport State Univ. As usual, their annual spring performances were brilliant. As to the photo, last night it won 1st place in the Monochrome category at Camera Rochester's monthly competition. Needless to say, I am feeling quite proud of it. For the photography mavens, I shot it using my Canon 60D in manual focus and on shutter priority [1/60 sec., f/5.6 and 6400 ISO]. The camera, equipped with an 18 -135 mm lens, was on a tripod. The photo shoot experience was a blast, and certainly took me out of my comfort zone.Finally, I decided that the B & W image looked better than the color version and decided to work with that. Hope you enjoy it.
