Welcome/Willkommen!

Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
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.

Freddie-Sue Bridge continued [Sky Watch Friday]


   I have to admit that the ‘Freddie-Sue’ Bridge is my favorite structure in Rochester. For those of you who are seeing images of it for the first time, scrolling further [as well as delving into my Archive] will show why it is so fascinating. It doesn’t have the complexity of, say, the Brooklyn Bridge, but there is something light, airy and graceful about it. And, having easy access to it offers many opportunities to photograph it at all times of the day and from different perspectives. These two images were shot from the same general area on different occasions [I did not try to shoot from identical spots].
