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.

Clothing/Accessories 10 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

  Today completes the men’s orange shirts mini-series. The image below was shot in NYC in the vicinity of the new World Trade Center. Many photographers are somewhat shy [if not squeamish] about trying to take a portrait, since it seems daunting to approach a person of interest. In the image below, I did not even have to say a word to get this shot. I simply smiled, held out my camera towards him, and sort of cocked my head for approval. The good brother laughed, nodded and puffed up his chest for the shot. So, sometimes ‘body language’ is sufficient to get permission.


As in the above image, we were wandering around the area of the new WTC. It was around noon and many workers were taking their lunch break and enjoying the mild weather. For this image, I took a candid shot and continued walking by.
 

Continuing our stroll through lower Manhattan, we saw this food stand. My OYGIF alarm went off and I got this three-fer.


If three weren't enough, here I hit a jackpot. This was shot from atop a double-decker city tour bus in Berlin.
