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.

Halberstadt Dom [Sky Watch Friday]


Well, we were away again and I have fallen even further behind. But, here are two shots taken of the Halberstadt Dom [pronounced 'dome'], St. Stephan's Cathedral, which dates back to the 13th century. Halberstadt is a lovely old city in northern Germany [but, south of Berlin]. Although it suffered massive damage in WWII, there are three churches and a synagogue still standing in the heart of town [I think that much of the original structures actually survived]. Anyway, as you can see from these two images, the sky underwent some dramatic changes, which made it fun shooting.
