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.

Midtown Pool [Sky Watch Friday]

  The winter has been long and bitter in Rochester this season. Nevertheless, the [heated] outdoor swimming pool is scheduled to open on April 1 at the Midtown Athletic Club. Since the snow is piled up high everywhere, I thought I’d go out with my cell phone and check what the pool looked like. Two days ago it was still covered with a tarp, and the surrounding deck had 1-2 feet of snow with narrow shoveled around the area. Yet, we've been assured that things are progressing on schedule [maybe, but not to the untrained eye].



    This is what I hope the pool will look like on opening day [originally shot in Nov. 2014].
