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.

Erie Canal Bridge [Sky watch Friday]


Rochester is fortunate to have many bodies of water in and around it. These include the Finger Lakes, the Genesee River, [Great ]Lake Ontario, Niagara Falls, Irondequoit Bay, and the Erie Canal. They make for numerous sports/recreational activities, as well as photographic opportunities. I have posted a number of images for SWF with the Genesee River [aka the Genny] -- in fact, my blog site header was shot on its shoreline. Today’s image was shot during a walk along the Erie Canal in Pittsford, NY. It was another one of those occasions where I had to resort to using my cell phone to capture what I thought was an irresistible view.
