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.

Orange Hair [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

  This posting is a departure from those of recent weeks; viz. these are 'people' shots. What caught my eye about these women was, among other things, their hair color. Each one was some shade of orange. Several years ago, a bright red-orange hue became popular in parts of Germany. None of the colors here had quite that bright red intensity. 

                        The above image was taken on a city bus in Braunschweig, Germany.

Mother and daughter are busy perusing wares at a Flohmarkt in Braunschweig. With this image, I got a 'two-fer'; viz. orange hair and orange bag.
This woman was engrossed in reading the book cover at Buchhandlung Winter, located at Giesebrechtstr. 18, Berlin-Charlottenburg. This establishment was judged 'Buchhandlung des Jahres'  [2011/12]. It so happens that the proprietress is my wife's cousin [once removed].  So, if you are in the area, then stop in and tell Almut that Stan sent you.
This mother and son were strolling on East Main Street in Rochester, NY. The boy's attention seems to be focused on something across the street.
