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.

'Super moon' over Rochester [Sky Watch Friday]


      On the night of the ‘super moon’, local photographers turned out in force for a shoot along the Genesee River. In the top image, I took advantage of Rochester’s ‘Freddie-Sue’ Bridge [scroll down to earlier postings], to frame the moon. Although the sky was fairly clear, I lacked a really powerful telephoto lens to capture much detail of the moon’s craters. Still, I love my 18-135mm lens since it is so versatile [actually, it is functionally a 29-216mm because of the sensor], so I don’t have to change lenses.
