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.

Spring Trip 1 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

Several weeks ago my wife and I visited our daughter and two grandsons in Towson, MD [outside of Baltimore]. One of the trip highlights was a visit to the Baltimore Aquarium.  Located in the harbor area, the Aquarium is a superb complex of exhibits that are positively enthralling. Below is a small selection of images shot using my Canon 60D or cell phone.
  The top image is that of an Atlantic Puffin, which just so happens to have an orange beak! Fortunately, it sat fairly still and I could get several decent shots using a zoom lens. Not all tanks were well illuminated, which made shooting a challenge, in addition to the fact that the fish were almost always on the move. Nevertheless, I did get some images worth sharing.
