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.

Family Fun at Seabreeze 2 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

     Recently, we enjoyed having our [middle] daughter and two grandsons for a visit. One of the highlights was a day at Seabreeze Amusement/Water Park. The first installment of photos I shot there were posted last week [just scroll down to view]. It was really great fun to see their energy and enthusiasm, not to mention their fearlessness, and that includes our daughter as well. Today's photos completes the group of images made from that day. [Brief note: Next week I will be taking a break and not posting.]

Post Processing Abstracts 4

Here are more abstract images generated from garden variety flowers. These lack orange color and are not ear-marked for OYGIF.

Family Fun at Seabreeze 1 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

  Oh well, another side-track. This week we’ve been enjoying a visit by our [middle] daughter, Ursula [aka Uschi] and her two sons. One of the highlights was a visit to the Seabreeze Amusement/Water Park. They were on almost all of the exciting rides, and most of them more than once. I took these in continuous shooting mode, which really allowed me to find a decent image for each venue. [Gavi is in the orange shirt, and Korby and Uschi are in dark shirts].

Post Processing Abstracts 3 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

   This past March I started a mini-series called Post Processing Abstracts, which was not linked with OYGIF. I don’t know how, but I became side-tracked and never posted further installments. And, today, I was stunned to find a folder [located on my cluttered Desktop] with files waiting to be uploaded. As luck would have it, several are images suitable for OYGIF. So, I'll take this opportunity to get back on track.
