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.

Local Winter Scenes [Orange You Glad It’s Friday] [Sky Watch Friday]

   To my OYGIF friends, this is a quick break from my Water Scenes series, as this posting is also appropriate for SWF. Considering that we have had sub-zero temperatures every day this month [and snow almost every day] in Rochester, NY, I thought I’d pay a little homage to Mother Nature. As luck would have it, I did not have to go far to capture these cell phone images: one was from my bedroom window, and the other was out the back door.
  One morning last week, I heard a loud crunching sound from outside. Uh oh!! Looking out I saw that a school bus had collided with my neighbor’s tree. Fortunately, all the school children had been dropped off already, and the bus was returning to where ever they go during the day. I don’t know why the bus left the the road, but a variety of scenarios came to mind. Oddly, enough, the police never appeared and, eventually, the bus backed up and left. I guess this will remain one of those deep, dark mysteries of the universe....


Since the above occurrence, we have had considerably more snow falling. Looking out into the backyard this morning, I had to laugh at how the snow had accumulated. Now I know Rochester can’t compete with the 5 feet that hit Buffalo and Boston, but, it’s our snow.
