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.

Rochester's Gray Skies [Sky Watch Friday]

   Like last week, today’s postings features Rochester’s gray wintry sky as the backdrop to familiar architectural structures. The top image is the oft photographed Lincoln-Chase Tower. The Genesee River runs through Rochester, so a number of pedestrian and auto bridges span it. These provide some nice vantage points from which to set up shop for photographing. The two images below were shot from one such location. While there may be too much negative space in the water, I decided to not crop that out, in favor of showing the space as it was.
