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.

Pittsburgh Skies II [Sky Watch Friday]


   As I mentioned in an earlier panorama posting, Pittsburgh can be a photographer’s heaven. The photo below was shot from atop an open double-decker tour bus as we were crossing a bridge. In the center is the park around which two rivers [Allegheny from the left] and Monongahela from the right] join to form the Ohio River. You can see the fountain in the park for which there is a closeup in my 9/12/13 posting. Considering that the bus was rocking and moving laterally, I am quite pleased with the shot, especially since it was the only one I could get off.

The bottom image of the downtown skyline was taken from the top of Mt. Washington, which we reached by going up the ‘Mon’ Incline, a funicular on which senior citizens rode free of charge. While the cityscape was directly across the river, views up and down the Monongahela were just as spectacular. I’ll post a few of those next week.
