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.

From the Sky [Sky Watch Friday]

 This posting is a followup to last week’s Aruba Skies. The flight to Aruba and back provided some photo-ops, as my wife let me have the window seat [the fact that it is colder sitting by the window had absolutely nothing to do with it]. The two images below were taken with my cell phone as we made our approach into Charlotte, NC. A fairly dense cloud cover obscured the ground when all of a sudden the downtown skyscrapers appeared looming upwards. It was shortly thereafter that I saw another plane off to our left, also making its approach [hopefully to a different runway]. Since I could not gauge the distance separating us, I wonder whether this might have constituted a hazardous situation.




 

The two images below were shot on our return flight as we approached Philadelphia. In these images, I think that presence of the plane's wing actually improves the composition.
