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.

Big Apple Pics [Sky Watch Friday]

Sorry to have missed the last several weeks of posting, but we were traveling in Germany. While the vacation pictures are being sifted through, here are a few taken [with my cell phone] closer to home; viz. New York City. These perspectives are not ones you would might commonly associate with NYC, but that’s the spice in doing photography. The shot of the Empire State Building was from a side street, where I was standing in front of a church garden.

Reflection [Sky Watch Friday]

The perspective in this image is somewhat confusing. At first glance, you might believe it is upside down, except it is a reflection of the sky in the rear window of my car. I was about to load my tennis bag into the back when I was awe-struck with this sight; and, of course, I had to photograph it. Yep -- another cell phone capture -- If you look carefully, you can see thin horizontal lines corresponding to the heating/defrosting elements in the glass.
