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.

Anhinga [Sky Watch Friday]

This shot was taken several years ago in the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden [located quite a bit south of Miami]. The bird is a Anhinga, also known as the Darter, Snakebird or Water Turkey. It appeared to be drying its wings atop its lofty perch as we happened by. While I am not particularly a fan of birds, I must confess it was fascinating to watch. Besides, it made an otherwise uninteresting sky worth photographing.
