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.

It was shot with a cell phone camera while strolling with my wife and brother-in-law through a park in Riddagshausen [outside of Braunschweig in northern Germany], where my wife Rosemarie grew up. The paths stretch for several few miles around a lake, which pedestrians and bicyclists share with equanimity.  Unlike the 'average' American, Europeans in general, and Germans in particular, enjoy walking -- especially on Sunday. Yes, I already feel better thinking about it and looking at this ---
