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.

Pittsburgh Sky & Water [Sunday Stills] [Sky Watch Friday]


 Last week, my wife and I enjoyed several wonderful days in Pittsburgh, PA, where there was an abundance of photo-ops.  So, today I am going to depart from my planned posting of more Rochester-area images. Like NYC, Pittsburgh is divided by two rivers [the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River]. Consequently, there are quite a number of bridges connecting the separted sections of the city. It is quite nice to walk across the bridges and enjoy the cityscape views, as well as the river traffic [kayakers, barges, motor boats, tour boats] . 
The panorama below was generated from 7 separate (hand-held) shots of PNC Park, home of the Pirates, and the Roberto Clemente Bridge (a very small portion of Heinz Field, home of the Steelers, is visible to the far left). In the foreground, the Allegheny River flows to meet the Monongahela River, where it will then combine to form the Ohio River. On the point of merger, there is a lovely park and fountain [bottom image]. I thought I'd get a 2-fer with these pics by posting simultaneously in Sky Watch Friday and Sunday Stills [Water].
