Welcome/Willkommen!

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.

Marktplatz in Halle [Sky Watch Friday]

There are many interesting towns in the former DDR including Halle, situated in Sachsen-Anhalt along the river Saale. It was one of the major cities of East Germany until the reunification. This image was originally on a 2x2 color slide, which was recently scanned and digitalized. It was taken in the Marktplatz [market place], and it includes a statue honoring George Friedrich Handel [left], the Marktkirche [center] and the Roter Turm [right].  I was fortunate to have a fine sky to shoot against.
