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.

Recent Contest Winners

  Several months ago I posted photos from our trip to Toronto. I entered two of them in one of the Camera Rochester Club's monthly juried competitions [these were in the Digital category]. The images below placed first and second [scoring 15/15 and 14/15, respectively]. Considering the quality of the other entries, I feel quite proud. The image below [1st place] was taken in the Art Gallery of Ontario; I was standing directly beneath the staircase designed by Frank Gehry. Since it started on the 2nd floor, one could walk beneath it.






   The 2nd place image was taken in the Royal Ontario Museum. The diagonals of the windows are characteristic of Daniel Libeskind's architectural creations. I should note that both images were shot without the aid of a tripod.
