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.

Florals [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

     This posting is sort of a transitional state between the abstract images [‘orbs’] I’ve been displaying and real life florals. The two Japanese anemone pics were originally posted on my blog sometime in 2011, when I was heavily into floral macro-photography and printing/selling the images as art notecards. I thought it wouldn’t hurt to post them in OYGIF along with the new orb creation and, thereby, close out two chapters in my journey. The two original photos were taken with a Canon A720 ‘point and shoot’, which is perfect for macro shots. I noticed the lone flower in the garden fronting our living room as I passed by pushing a lawn mower. It stopped me in my tracks and I ran inside to get the camera. It was one of my wiser decisions, as the cards that were subsequently generated have been among my best sellers. I find it interesting that people have a strong preference for either the offset image or the centered one, but are not keen on both.
