Welcome/Willkommen!

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.

Ireland Arrays #1


Looking through our Ireland vacation photos, a new theme has emerged; viz. arrays [others might use another term to describe a scene with repeating elements]. In any event, that is something that always catches my eye, especially if shooting it also creates some diagonal line. Here are some examples. Next week I'll post a few that lack the diagonal.


This was shot in The Merry Ploughboy Pub in Donegal.


I wish there would have been a few more tour buses in the line. Those oversize side view mirrors remind me of the antennae of some insect.


Now this is not necessarily an image that one would associate with Ireland. But, as it turned out, as we were driving past a golf club, our tour guide/driver turned in to show us where he likes to golf. This shot made the little detour worthwhile for me.


After the many pit stops along the way, I finally found one that 'spoke' to me -- yep, 'beauty' in the strangest of places.
