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.

Urban [Orange] Photography 4 [Orange You Glad It's Friday]

   Orange brick buildings must have been popular at one time in Rochester. I posted a few such cases in last week’s OYGIF, and here are a few more. At one time, Rochester abounded in breweries and men’s clothing manufacturers/retailers. Few remain of either -- although one stumbles across evidence in unexpected places. World Wide News has been a fixture in the heart of downtown for over 70 years. It sells foreign newspapers, as well as from all over the country, and every magazine you've ever heard of [including dozens that you haven't. Add to that all sorts of items (gum, candy, tobacco, liquor, and a large enough book selection that it rates as one of Rochester's better independent bookstores). Oh, add to that the fact that it is open 24/7 and you can expect quite a diverse clientele.
