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.

Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum Interiors


Earlier this month, Rosemarie and I spent several days in Toronto enjoying its sites, food and people. Two of the highlights were separate extended visits to their two top-notch museums: the Art Gallery of Ontario [AGO] and the Royal Ontario Museum [ROM]. Over the last several years, both have undergone major renovations and expansion designed by two world famous architects; viz. Frank Gehry [AGO] and Daniel Liebeskind [ROM], respectively. Having seen Gehry’s museum in Bilbao, Spain and Liebeskind’s Jewish Museum in Berlin, we just had to make a pilgrimage to Toronto. Needless to say, the museums did not disappoint. The images below are from the ROM. Both the exterior and interior display the unusual and distinctive Liebeskind trademark designs; viz. slashing diagonals, clashing lines and unusual shapes that can be disorienting. Today’s posting features several eye catching interior shots.
