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.

A Tale of Two Fishermen

     Here are two images of fishermen that evokes distinctly different moods. The upper image, shot on the island of Santorini, Greece, engenders a sense of tranquility. Gentle waves wash up on the sand as the angler calmly awaits a bite. One wonders whether he even cares about making a catch, as he seems lost in thought. Santorini is a volcanic island, as evidenced by the black sand and rocks.
   The lower image below was taken at the Ludlowville falls [south of Rochester]. In August, I posted a cropped version as a panorama. This scene has quite a different feel to it. Water streams over the crest and cascades down the rocks. We can almost hear its ‘roar’ as the angler, dwarfed by the falls, is caught up with unsnarling his line, evoking a totally different feeling.
