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.

Papa! Ice cream!

Personally, I really like this image because there are any number of stories one can make up about the scene. First, some background: this was shot at an outdoor market in Nürnberg, Germany last September. This little boy made a bee-line for the ice cream stand [wouldn't you?], and tried in vain to see what was in the glass showcase. Of course, he called for his Papa, who arrived in short order.  Rather than picking up and treating his son to some delicious ice, he carried him away [in tears]. So, there was no 'Kodak moment' to shoot. Sorry the story did not have a happy ending. But, for a brief time, the boy's excitement/anticipation was high, and I caught it.
