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.

World Cup Fever 5 [Orange You Glad It's Friday]

    World Cup 2014 is in the books! Congratulations to Germany and Argentina for providing a dramatic and worthy final, and kudos to champion Deutschland. Fans who followed the games know that the officials played important roles, both for the [controversial] calls they made, as well as those they didn’t make. And there were plenty of each to talk about. This week completes my WC 2014 postings, and it is dedicated to the referees and linesmen. One piece of trivia: for some unexplained reason, the color of the ball used in the final was changed. If you looked carefully, the orange stripe [see below] was gone.
