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.

Fireworks 1 [Sky Watch Friday]

   In the USA, fireworks are traditional for celebrations of July 4th and the New Year. But, they are often seen on lesser occasions. Since I did not fancy going out in the cold to shoot fireworks [no pun intended] welcoming in 2014, I went into my archive for these images. They were taken in Fall 2013 for some local celebration, and they represent my first ‘serious’ attempt at fireworks photography. At the time I was with a group of about two dozen other photographers. For me, it was quite a learning experience; and I think I had some beginner’s luck.  [A Postscript: Starting next week, I will be taking a (temporary) break from blogging.]
