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.

Downtown Rochester Pano 1 [Sky Watch Friday]

It’s high time to return from our travels and feature my adopted home town.  In addition to having an abundance of arts and cultural organizations/productions, Rochester, NY also possesses a rich history. It offers a wide variety of architecture and natural beauty that interests photographers of every stripe. Since one can park for free anywhere in the city on Sunday, I took advantage of good weather and ventured downtown alone and shoot some images that could be merged into panoramas. But, unlike those I made in Ireland and Arizona [scroll down through my archive], I used a tripod here-- turned out to be a wise decision. In the image below, some of the iconic buildings and structures are evident [I recommend clicking on the to enlarge the view]. I will post more of Rochester in the coming weeks. [Be sure to click on the image to enlarge].
