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.

Savannah 3 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

Today’s images were shot along cobble-stoned River Street, which runs parallel to the Savannah River. It is a good nine blocks long and abounds with boutiques, shops, restaurants, pubs,and  galleries. Day and night finds the street bustling with pedestrians [window]shopping, hanging out, watching the endless boat traffic or stopping to listen to some street musician. The two images below involve a shop that really spoke to me, as I am a ‘hat person’.

This next image was shot at night [obviously] and captures the ambiance of River Street. I should mention that many of the buildings were formerly cotton warehouses, which have now been renovated. To the left of the candy store is a pub, The Warehouse, from which I heard a singer performing. His pic will be in a later posting. 

At one point, River Street becomes a short enclosed passage. The image below was shot just about halfway through it. Next week I'll post some portraits of folks we encountered during our stay.
