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.

Urban [Orange] Photography 1 [Orange You Glad It's Friday & Sky Watch Friday]

    I noted in an earlier OYGIF posting that I’ve suddenly begun seeing orange everywhere. In fact, during several recent photo-shoots, I’ve acquired several dozen new images that I will post over time.  So, today marks the start of my ‘Urban [Orange] Photography’ series. West of downtown Rochester are several side street with turn of the century [19th-20th] buildings. Some of these structures are under renovation for conversion to living space. Along Cascade Street, we came across some heavy equipment that was probably used in work on the windows. The top two images are what I saw and photographed first for OYGIF. 




    As I walked down the block, I turned back. The sight just about ‘knocked my socks off’. I saw the heads and necks of two dinosaurs spanning the street and silhouetted against the sky. Wow! What a find -- which only reinforces the principle to LOOK AROUND. The image below is what I saw. I am using it as the thumb-nail in the link to Sky Watch Friday, too.
