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 Artisan Works 4 [Orange You Glad It's Friday]

  This continues the Artisan Works series I began last week. As I explained earlier, among the many objet d’art are paintings, which will be the focus of today’s posting. The entrance is at one end of a large room from which one may proceed to several different hallways. Since there are no guide pamphlets, one explores and hopes for the best. The gallery below was one of the first I encountered and it just had to be shot, as in the top photo. Using a post-processing trick [learned from a fellow photographer] I converted the image into an ‘over-the-top’ surreal abstract.

  As there was no exit from this hallway, I returned to the main room and found yet more paintings. Since there were too many to look at and enjoy at leisure, I decided to keep shooting and defer that to later when I would have them on my computer screen.
